There is a new staff member at the Madison/Rankin County DA’s office! His name is Marshmellow.
Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Bubba Bramlett announced the addition of a new therapy dog, Marshmallow, to his staff.
Marshmallow is an 11-month-old English Cream Golden Retriever who will work alongside office staff to comfort and serve children and other victims who visit the District Attorney’s Office.
Specially trained therapy dogs provide comfort and support to people in various tense environments.
They can help people feel at ease, improve their mood, relieve anxiety, and remove social barriers.
Therapy dogs are highly trained and certified to show their ability to work in stressful environments, ignore distractions, and provide therapy to people with diverse backgrounds and circumstances.
“I want to thank Katrinna Miller and her organization, Mississippi Therapy Animals, for their amazing generosity in providing and trusting our office with Marshmallows care and continued training,” said District Attorney Bramlett. “In a time where mental health awareness is on the rise, Marshmallow will serve a huge role in comforting victims and family members who, often due to no fault of their own, find themselves in our office in an unfamiliar situation. Marshmallow has already had a noticeable effect in the short time he’s been coming to work,” stated Bramlett.
