The Pre-Adjudication Animal Welfare Court, referred to as P.A.W., was implemented in May of 2016.  The Hon. Rosemary Cosgrove-Aguilar presides over this innovative judicial approach to misdemeanor offenses involving the cruelty to or neglect of animals.  Participants must agree to attend status hearings with the judge and specialized treatment, known as Anicare.  This is a 16 week psychosocial program although additional treatment services may be ordered as well.  Through early court intervention, education, supervision, and judicial oversight, P.A.W.’s goal of preventing and reducing incidents of animal abuse and neglect will be achieved.
