Cali, Cranston Police Department Therapy Dog Special Storytime
Join us for our special guests Cali and Detective Michael Iacone from Cranston Police Department for a special storytime and meet and greet.
Cali is the state's first comfort therapy dog to serve as a member of a Rhode Island police department, as well as the first resident canine at a hospital. Her police job is with the Cranston Police Department, and her hospital assignment will be at Hasbro.
Cali, an Australian Labradoodle, helps comfort children suspected of being abused and build their trust with investigators and physicians. Cali gives the children a buddy and a shoulder to lean on.
