Dogs Used For Emotional Support
May 13, 2020
According to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, courthouses in Oklahoma are using emotional support animals to help children testify during difficult cases.
Many of the dogs that are being used as emotional support animals are trained in Oklahoma state prisons.
The dogs are rescued from local shelters and taught skills needed to be emotional support animals.
Inmates in the prisons are also learning about responsibility and dedication through the training of the dogs.
