Reka, a facility dog in St. Louis, works at the Child Advocacy Center. Her job is to offer comfort to the children that are in the facility who need emotional support while testifying against (many times) family members. The workers are the facility are not legally allowed to comfort the children while they are testifying, so that’s where Reka the Service Dog comes in. Several staff members of Senior Marketing Specialists donated money to purchase stuffed Reka replica’s that the children can then take with them to offer further comfort after they leave the facility and the court room.
