Dog groomer wanted - for an Illinois state prison.

But it's not to keep guard dogs looking sharp.

The Decatur Correctional Center has a dog-grooming training program.

It's called CLIP, for Correctional Ladies Improving Pets.

Now, the women's prison is looking for a new person to take over.

The woman who has done it since 2002 is stepping down.

Prison officials say few of the inmates who've receive the training have returned.

Former inmate Katrina Williamson says CLIP changed her life.

She found a job grooming dogs right after being released.
