Western Regional CAC Director Tool Kit
A growing number of Children’s Advocacy Centers are incorporating dogs or other animals into their centers. There are a variety of approaches: comfort animals, therapy animals, and courthouse dogs. There are differences in the purpose, training, and use of these animals. Centers that are considering adding an animal should carefully consider how to incorporate the animal into their services.
This manual, outlining recommended practices for integrating a facility dog into your CAC, was created in collaboration with Courthouse Dogs Foundation.
