Courthouse Facility Dogs

Courthouse Facility Dogs help abused children find their voice in court. Because their presence encourages child survivors to tell their story, prosecutors can convict more offenders.  

Trauma Response Facility Dogs

Emergency Services Facility Dogs facilitate first responder resiliency. These dogs work full time helping firefighters, paramedics, hospital staff and law enforcement agencies.

 

They also deploy to support communities after tragedies, such as the shootings in El Paso and Uvalde.
