COURTHOUSE DOG PROGRAM
Emma the CASA Dog is a Golden Retriever who was trained by Assistance Dogs of the West (ADW) in Santa Fe to work with traumatized children in the court system.
Zia the CASA Dog, a Black Labrador also trained by ADW, joined the team in 2015.
The job of these dogs is to help give strength to the child victims and make their journey through the judicial process a little easier. Because of their specialized training, Emma and Zia can accompany child victims to the courtroom.
