A dog called Justice
Dec. 19, 2018

Meet Justice. The Labrador retriever is the canine advocate for Michigan State University’s Sexual Assault Program, which works to create a safer community for all.

Justice provides emotional support to survivors and accompanies them during police interviews and court proceedings. This is the first time Michigan’s Canine Advocacy Program has placed a dog with a sexual assault program.

Founded in 1980, MSU’s Sexual Assault Program, also known as MSU SAP, provides immediate crisis intervention and advocacy services, including free and confidential therapy, to individuals impacted by rape or sexual violence.

The campus-based program, which serves more than 600 survivors each year, also provides a 24-hour hotline, online crisis chat and institutional and legal advocacy to student and nonstudent survivors of sexual assault.
