Courthouse dogs can be child's best friend
Program pairs dogs with sexually abused children going through court system
The Child Advocacy Center of Charlotte, Tenn., and the Courthouse Dogs Foundation recently joined together with Humphreys County court officials at the county’s courthouse to discuss a new program in Waverly.
Under the new program, Courthouse Dogs will assist sexually abused children and provide them comfort while they go through forensic interviews and testify in court. The dogs are trained by organizations that are members of Assistance Dogs International.
