Comfort Dogs Bring Joy to Children at Red Cross Shelter

By Kira Froese and Courtney Wilson, Canadian Red Cross Public Affairs

Christina’s “kids”, Nathaniel and Cooper, spent some time providing comfort and bringing joy to flood affected families and children, who have been staying at a Red Cross supported shelter in North Carolina. After everything these families have been through it might seem unlikely, but they aren’t your average kids.

Nathanial and Cooper are gentle and lovable comfort therapy dogs, and they instantly lifted the spirits of the children in the shelter.

These pups are part of a non-profit called Helping Paws International, which is an organization that cultivates “FURst aid for the heart.” Nathaniel and Cooper, and their dog-mom partnered with the Red Cross and the outcome was truly incredible.
