Puppies help heal victims

Comfort dogs have been brought in to help those that experienced the Nashville School shooting last month. A group of golden retrievers was brought to the memorial set up at the Covenant School. As people continue to flow to the spot to leave memorial items, the dogs have helped comfort them.

The Nashville Fire Department called on the National Crisis Response Canines, a volunteer organization that works with counselors, EMS, and firefighters. The dogs have been helping first responders deal with what they witnessed at the school.

Andy Garmezy with the canine non-profit says “You can see the stress just lift off them when they start to pet the dog, and that’s why we’re involved with counselors and children.”

The group has been involved in high profile tragedies in recent years to help comfort victims’ families and survivors as well as first responders. It’s not known how long they will be in Music City helping out.
