Child Advocacy Center Going to the Dog

The Will County Child Advocacy Center now has a dog to make youths feel more at ease.

Youths brought to the Will County Children's Advocacy Center for victim-sensitive interviews — likely and understandably — are nervous, scared and ill-at-ease.

But now the county has a canine to make the children feel more comfortable.

Jackson the dog was introduced as the program's first Paws Pal by Will County State’s James Glasgow and Children’s Advocacy Center Executive Director Sue Bloch on Wednesday afternoon.

According to a statement released by the state's attorney's office, Jackson is a 3-year-old, 63-pound Labrador retriever licensed through Therapy Dog International.
