Our goal is to help victims of crime mitigate their trauma, navigate the criminal justice system and rebuild their lives.
On November 4, 2008, the People of the State of California approved Proposition 9, the Victims’ Bill of Rights Act of 2008: Marsy’s Law. This measure amended the California Constitution to provide additional rights to victims. This includes supporting all victims of crime regardless of imigration status.
Red is our four year old Golden Retriever/Lab Victim Services Dog, raised and trained by Assistance Dogs of the West to assist vulnerable victims of crime in the criminal justice system with forensic interviews, exams, court and other legal proceedings.
