Only on NBC5: Therapy dog placed at Children’s Advocacy Center

Medford, Ore. — It’s an exciting week at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Jackson County, as their newest staff member comes aboard. NBC5 News first told you about their new program assistance dog in May, when Dogs for the Deaf began training the 2 year old lab, and tonight, she has a new home.

Fancy has spent the last several months training at Dogs for the Deaf, and is now ready to help kids heal at the Children’s Advocacy Center. She will be working alongside Catherine Zern, a licensed clinical social worker at the CAC, a non-profit that helps kids in Jackson County who have been abused.

Trainer Jessica Reichmuth has been there every step of the way, making sure the transition is a seamless one. And so far so good, once training wraps up on Saturday, Fancy is officially placed.

Fancy will begin seeing clients with Catherine starting Monday. Dogs for the Deaf will continue to check in on her progress over the next couple of months. If you’d like to learn more about the program assistance dogs, click HERE.
