The Canine Advocacy Program (CAP) was developed to provide advocacy services to child victims utilizing a highly trained dog to help alleviate the anxiety associated with being involved in the criminal justice system.

Our dog “Amos” is skilled in assisting children in both the courts and assisting child victims of sexual assault in group therapy settings. He has worked in both the District and Circuit courts as well as the Oakland County Childrens Village located in Pontiac Mi.

CAP accepts referrals from all courts in Oakland County as well as law enforcement agencies and agencies involved in providing services to children who have been victimized.

Canine Advocacy Program is a Michigan non-profit corporation and a licensed Michigan charitable organization.
