The precious pups of K-9 Comfort Dogs had a very busy week last week bringing love, calm and companionship to the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing and the explosion in Texas.
Some of these furry friends have been in Newport, Conn. since December bringing comfort to the community as it tries to heal from the Sandy Hook school shooting.
According to the Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Parish Comfort Dogs Facebook page, several dogs and handlers were deployed to Boston, West, Texas, and Roanoke, Ill, which was the scene of flooding last week.
The following is the Facebook description of the mission of this non-profit group:
Mission: A dog is a friend who brings a calming influence, allowing people to open up their hearts and receive help for what is affecting them.
Company Overview: These are trained Comfort Dogs for Lutheran Church Charities. They interact with people at churches, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, events and in disaster situations.
