They visited the Silver Creek Assisted Living Center in Joplin. Along with visiting seniors, they also helped people after the Joplin tornado and even traveled to Sandy Hook after the school shooting. The dog handlers say people just open up to the animals.
"After the tornado, people were in shock. The dogs let people smile, to maybe forget about their troubles for a little bit, release any tension for a little while," said Jason Glaskey, Comfort Dog Owner.
There are more than 70 healing dogs across the country that work with the church. Several are now in Boston to help people after the recent tragedy. To learn more about the program, click here. To follow Jackson on Facebook, click here. To follow Louie on Facebook, click here.
