How Therapy Dogs Help Abused Children Testify

Child abuse is a serious offense. Anybody caught with child abuse should pay for their crimes.

But before they pay, a fair trial is required.

Captors and abusers traumatize children. The government provides therapy animals to victims and witnesses. These animals are trained to detect chemical imbalances and certain signs from humans to know when they are needed. Then, they would provide the child proper care.

Karl is one of them and he handles every situation perfectly.

He sits with children and he lets them touch him. Then, they hold his leash, talk to him or kiss him, which allows the children to feel calm.

Cute Karl even has a small blue hat on his head to help children feel and keep safe.
