The love of a pet is needed most during times of grief – so we loved hearing that Golden Retriever Therapy Dogs visited the town of Newtown, CT to comfort those affected by the horrific shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The Hudson Valley Golden Retriever Club & the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry are just a few of the many pet support teams that have visited the community, providing a much needed smile and cuddly comfort to the children and families.
For stories, photos and videos on these wonderful pups and the comfort they are providing – please visit the links below:

The Today Show – Therapy Dogs are “Furry Counselors for Newtown Community”
We also encourage everyone to join Ann Curry’s #20Acts & #26Acts of kindness to honor the Sandy Hook Victims – maybe your Goldens can help? You can also donate to the Golden Therapy teams listed above.
