In times of tragedy, sickness, and strife, sometimes nothing feels better than cuddles and attention from our favorite four-legged friends.
Playing with dogs can help quell our stress, making us feel better emotionally and physically they can even help deal with PTSD.
This is why therapy dogs have been such important resources for those who are in need of comfort and care. Trained specifically to provide comfort, therapy dogs have been used under a multitude of circumstances in hospitals, nursing homes, and schools.
But they have also been a particularly pertinent resource during the various tragedies that have happened in the country over the past few years. They have been there for victims and their loved ones to brighten their day and give them something to let and love.
One particular fluffy therapy fleet, the Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs, has been providing comfort for victims of the Sunday tragedy in Orlando.
These dogs are providing important emotional support for those in need, giving them something innocent to focus on while they grieve and process.
