Five “K-9 Comfort Dogs” from Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) are in Boston to “help bring some relief to people that are shaken up because of the bombings,” according to LCC President Tim Hetzner in an April 16 story on today.com titled ” ‘Like furry counselors’: Comfort dogs deployed after Boston bombings.”
The golden retrievers — based at First Lutheran Church, just a few blocks from the bombing site — are expected to remain in Boston until at least Sunday, April 21.
“I would imagine their effect will be the same as it was in Newtown,” Hetzner said. “They bring a calming effect to people and help them process the various emotions that they go through in times like this.”
