We’d like to introduce Desiree IV, the Our Kids facility dog. Our Kids Clinic has a location at the Coffee County Children’s Advocacy Center, where it provides medical exams for children in Coffee and surrounding counties when there are concerns of child sexual abuse. Many children who come for a medical exam at the Coffee County CAC have the chance to meet Desiree IV.
Desiree IV has been the Our Kids facility dog since 2017. She is part of the Canine Companions for Independence program and was provided to Our Kids free of charge. Desiree IV attended an extensive training program for two years and is trained in over 40 commands.
Desiree IV makes children feel more comfortable when they come for their medical visit.
