THE STORY:

On Saturday, December 15, five Comfort Dogs and seven handlers arrived at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Newtown, Connecticut. By Monday morning nine dogs and 14 handlers were serving the bereaved community of Newton with the Mercy, Compassion and Presence of Christ. The Comfort Dogs have attended church services, memorial services, vigils and have spent time with the children of Newtown and their parents. The reaction to the presence of the Comfort Dogs has been overwhelming. Children and adults alike have smiled for the first time in days as they reach out to pet or hug a dog. They begin to relax and as that happens they start talking to the handlers about their fears and pain.
