Victim Services Toronto has launched Toronto’s first trauma dog program to help victims in the immediate aftermath of crime or tragedy. The Trauma Dog Program provides the comfort of a specially trained Labrador Retriever named “Dandy” to Victim Services Toronto clients. While the trauma dog is used to assist all victims where there may be benefits, the primary focus of the program is on child victims.
