Team of Dogs Brought in to Comfort Newtown Residents

Dogs make everybody feel better.


A team of Golden Retrievers—"comfort dogs"—arrived in Newtown, Conn., over the weekend to help grief-stricken residents deal with the school shooting tragedy.

Lutheran Church Charities sent 10 dogs to the town for residents who want to pet them or pray with the dog's handler, Tim Hetzner, president of the organization, told the Chicago Tribune.
