The community of Newtown, Connecticut came together Saturday to show appreciation to the seventy therapy dogs that helped comfort them in the days and months after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The four-legged mental health providers and their caretakers belong to the group, Therapy Dogs International.
It was “very heartwarming,” volunteer Vic Neumann told ABC News. “I’ve only been doing this over a year now and it seemed amazing to me, the impact they can have. It’s indescribable.”
