Comfort Dogs have arrived in Orlando!
A fleet of roughly a dozen comfort and therapy dogs have been flown in from around the country to support people grieving in the aftermath of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting.
One of the dogs comes from the Gracie Comfort Ministry at Trinity Lutheran Church in Davenport, Iowa. Their director says: “We’ve always believed oftentimes a dog or an animal can do more for a human being than a human being can.”
The dogs attended last night’s vigil honoring the victims.
Today, they’ll be visiting survivors and families at hospitals caring for people who were injured in the shooting.
