Comfort dogs at 2014 Boston Marathon

  1. Marcy Wilhelm-South

    Boston Magazine and report that the Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs had a team available at the Boston Marathon yesterday. The group has had the canines available several times to those who may have had a need for them in the aftermath of the bombing at last year’s marathon, including during the days immediately following the event and then again six months later. The dogs were also available at times throughout the weekend leading up to the marathon itself.
