Animals have the amazing power to offer comfort and joy especially during times of need. Jewel, a nearly one year old Boston terrier mix is being trained as a "facility service dog" at the PSD Academy and Registry. Her job is to go to court with the girls when they testify against their traffickers and help them get through the healing process. Jewel works with the DC non-profit FAIR Girls, which creates "opportunities for girls to become confident, happy, healthy young women."
