Comfort dogs brought in by the Humane Society of Broward County were on hand to give students some much-needed support on their return to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for the first time since the deadly shooting on February 14th, 2018.

The Humane Society’s Animal Assisted Therapy teams have been posted an update on Twitter, writing: “our therapy dogs provided comfort, laughter and even licked away some tears,” and numerous messages of thanks to the community for allowing them to be a part of the healing process.

The students also practiced some calming yoga and a few of the canines were more than happy to join in on the relaxation.

In addition to the loving dogs, dozens of police officers and members of the community were also at the school to welcome and support the children and staff during their emotional return, showing just what it means to be #ParklandStrong.
