June 8, 2016 - The Sparks Justice Court Judges meet the "Justice Dogs" of Paws 4 Love!

All 8 of the furry members of the "Justice Dogs" team from Paws 4 Love came out for a meet and greet with the 3 Judges at the Sparks Justice Court.  It was a great opportunity for the Judges to be able to meet the dogs that are there to help ease the stress of the court's customers.  KRNV Channel 4 News and KOLO Channel 8 News were both present to capture all of the tail wagging and paw-shaking.
