Just days after the Las Vegas shooting, and everyone is still – rightfully – in shot, especially those who were directly affected – such as the victims.
However, The Lutheran Church Charities knew the healing could be helped with something simple – therapy dogs! Something that has been proven to have many many positive effects not only on a person’s mental health, but also their physical.
19 dogs arrived in town, and they were welcomed with open arms.
“I came straight to the hospital from the venue at 10:30 at night, still wearing my concert clothes, because I knew there were things I could do to help the families,” Szymanski told TODAY. “It was a sigh of relief when the first dogs arrived Monday morning, because I knew the cavalry had arrived.
Even with a tragedy with the magnitude of this, it’s great to know that our four-legged friends will always be there to help us get through it.
