The therapy dogs from K-9 comfort met survivors in the aftermath of the devastating shooting. The dogs visited the injured and the medical staff at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"The key is for people to cry and for people to start talking about what they're are going through, and it's a key part of the healing process," ABC News quoted Tim Hetzner, founder of the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministries.
"Dogs have an incredible sense of when somebody is hurting. They'll just come and lay themselves into somebody's lap," Tim Hetzner added
The therapy dogs were also present at a candle light vigil held to remember the victims of the senseless shooting.
