FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JUNE 11, 2014 –

The Davis Rebekah Lodge has donated $500 to help care for “Aloha,” a comfort dog working with the Yolo County District Attorney’s office.

Aloha often visits with adults and children as they participate, under stress, in court. And she visits kids and parents in family law court.

“Aloha seems to know who needs her most, and heads straight for that person and sits calmly next to them,” said Yolo Judge Kathleen White, herself a member of Rebekah Lodge.
