The Courtney fund was created to honour the memory of 8-year old Courtney
Trempe who was killed by a neighbour's dog in 1998. The fund is administered by Doggone Safe and provides support for child victims of dog attacks and their families.
To provide services not covered by insurance - such as trauma counseling, caregiver support, support for communication with school and peers while in hospital.
To provide resource cards to hospital emergency rooms that provide information on the need for trauma counseling, how to find a counselor, legal rights in case of a bite by someone else's dog, and help with deciding the fate of the dog that bit.
