    A dozen therapy dogs from around the country arrived in Orlando, Florida, earlier this week to comfort the grieving community shaken by the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

    The Trinity Lutheran Church in downtown Orlando, in coordination with Lutheran Church Charities, a Chicago-based nonprofit, flew the animals and their handlers to the city Tuesday afternoon.

    The 12 golden retrievers have met with thousands of community members including survivors of the Orlando nightclub rampage, family members and first responders.
