Four days after a van tore through Yonge Street killing 10 and injuring 14 more, a group of therapy dogs paid a visit to those affected by the tragic attack.

St. John Ambulance first brought more than a dozen therapy dogs to visit some of Monday’s first responding police officers before bringing the dogs to Mel Lastman Square to provide comfort and companionship to mourners.

If only for a few moments, the dogs put smiles back onto the faces of those affected by Monday’s violent attack, which has shaken not only the city of Toronto but the people and businesses that call the Yonge and Finch area home.

The St. John Ambulance volunteers and therapy dogs will be visiting Mel Lastman Square again this Friday until 1 pm.
