CHICAGO (CBS) – A group of comfort dogs that traveled from the Chicago suburbs to the tornado disaster in Oklahoma have been helping ease the pain and stress of storm victims and survivors.
The Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs from Addison arrived in Moore last Tuesday and hit the ground running. The specially trained Golden Retrievers began visiting local hospitals and spent time with one 8-year old who was injured when her school was destroyed.
“I love doggies,” said Courtney Brown as one of the dog, Ruthie, snuggled against her. The second grader attended Plaza Towers Elementary School where seven other children died. She suffered a fractured skull.
