Comfort Dogs Help Healing In Newtown (Video)
December 21, 2012 06:21 AM
At a memorial for the victims of the shooting in Newtown, Golden Retrievers led by local volunteers provide some canine care to adults as well as children affected by the tragedy.
Lending a lick or a paw - comfort dogs give support to a grieving community in Connecticut.
Some of the dogs were trained to help people suffering from trauma - or sickness. Others assist the disabled or elderly while some dog owners simply brought their pets to try to help.
As more and more dogs come to the memorial, even the police have started to take time to play with them.
Man's best friend continues the work in Newtown - as the community tries to heal.
