Justice Facility Dog (JFD) Lucca worked alongside the VPD’s Victim Service Unit staff to support victims, witnesses, and family members and to lessen the impact of trauma.

JFD Lucca was bred, raised, and trained by the Pacific Assistance Dog Society (PADS).

All proceeds from the symbolic JFD Lucca adoptions, will support the Retired VPD Service Dogs Fund, which is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of retired Service Dogs by providing financial support for their medical well-being. It’s a small way to thank these canine heroes for their outstanding service to our community.
