Nebraska Comfort Dog Headed to Tornado-Damaged Areas

By  | 

Man's best friend is going to Oklahoma to help kids and other victims cope with the devastation caused by a massive tornado Monday.

Moses the comfort dog, from Cairo, has been to several disaster areas and national tragedies like the Boston bombings, an explosion in West Texas and the school shooting in Newtown.

He is part of Lutheran Church Charities National K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry.

One of his handlers says Moses provides a lot of relief to people when they are able to pet him during a tough time.

"The dogs come into that setting and especially children are able to talk to them and be cuddled by them and be unconditionally loved," said Pastor Glen Keylon.

Moses and his handlers left on Monday for Oklahoma. They aren't sure what area of the state they will be assigned to.
