These two jailbirds enjoyed their time in lockup as people paid to keep them in jail rather than to bail them out.

Weston Farm Vineyard and Winery held a benefit for St. Rocco’s Hound Rescue on Saturday, Aug. 18.

Volunteer jailees sold tickets to lessen their time in jail or tickets could be purchased to keep a person in longer.

Jeannie Kenny, founder of St. Rocco’s Hound Rescue, and Penny Martin, proprietor of Weston Farm Vineyard and Winery teamed up for the fundraiser that made $1,188 for the rescue organization.
