We are thrilled to introduce our new team member, Hodge! He has joined our multidisciplinary team of partners to work together in Frederick County to stop child abuse. Hodge is a professionally trained and certified facility dog granted to the CAC through Canine Companions for Independence. He is a 61 lb lab/golden retriever cross who knows 37 commands. Hodge is assigned to our center to provide comfort and companionship to children and their family members who come to the CAC for interviews, counseling, and medical services. He enjoys children, his dinner, and long walks on the beach.
