Therapy Dogs Bring Smiles to South Carolina After Church Tragedy

Midpoint in the sorrow following the church shootings last week in Charleston, South Carolina, big slobbery dog kisses helped to spread comfort among the emotionally wounded.

As thousands of people rallied at a park across the bridge from the city on Sunday to honor the victims, Porsha (a St. Bernard) and George (a labradoodle), certified therapy dogs with the nonprofit, all-volunteer HOPE Animal-Assistance Crisis Response, went to work communicating peace and love in their own way.

Handlers Cindy Becker and Julie Scott say that their dogs offer relief to everyone – from first responders to trauma victims, to children who just want a kiss and a wag. "We let people approach us," says Scott told PEOPLE. "Our dogs offer unconditional comfort, even if it's just five minutes with this loving, calming animal."
