Currently there is not a Courthouse Dog in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The use of a courthouse dog can help bring about a major change in how we meet the emotional needs of children who have been abused and neglected. In other cities courthouse dogs have provided comfort to sexually abused children while they undergo forensic interviews and testify in court.
The dogs truly provide a calming presence. Children are especially inclined to interact with a Courthouse Dog and will often share their deepest, darkest experiences with someone who will not judge them. These dogs are graduates of accredited members of Assistance Dogs International. (http://courthousedogs.com/).
