Charlotte's Litter

Not long after the tragedy, therapy dogs were brought into school, where the children, including Guy, were immensely comforted by their presence. The Bacons felt that Charlotte must have had something to do with bringing the therapy dogs to Newtown, as she had been an avid dog lover. Soon Charlotte’s Litter was formed: a program that advocates for and supports appropriate therapy dog programs in educational and societal settings by connecting resources and experienced people, while providing input and guidance to parents and educators.
