    WOW! What a great idea! That’s a population I wouldn’t have thought about needing these services. But now that I think about it, it seems so obvious! Way to go Tilly!! :)

    That should have dogs in the courtrooms when victims testify so they can sit on their lap to calm their nerves.

    In Yolo County, CA the DA has the use of a therapy dog named Daisy Grace. Daisy sits with young sexual abuse victims as they are interviewed by social workers.

    In other places all over the US some dogs are allowed to sit with victims as they testify in court.

    God bless our four legged co-workers <3

    After having plenty of personal experience with various mental health care workers, I can honestly say, the best therapists I’ve ever had, were/are my dogs <3
