Therapy dogs help Newtown victims

Posted: Updated:
NEWTOWN, CT (WFSB) -

Volunteers are hoping some caring pets could help those grieving.

A group from the Chicago area brought in a team of specially trained therapists to help start the healing process.

Those therapists are 10 golden retrievers.

These "comfort dogs" and more than a dozen handlers from Lutheran Church Charities will be in Newtown all week.

The dogs can help people process their grief.
