Hello. Everything feels like it's terrible right now, so meet Jacob - he's here to help.

Jacob is a comfort dog who has traveled to provide support to the victims and their family's in the wake of the Florida school shooting.

Seventeen students and staff lost their lives on Valentine's Day when a gunman armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle opened fire at a school in Parkland, Florida.

This isn't Jacob's first outing as a comfort dog; he flew to Vegas in 2017 to comfort victims following the mass shooting there, and to Orlando to provide emotional support to victims of the Pulse nightclub attack.

As you can see, Jacob is a very, very good boy.

Jacob is one of 19 dogs sent by The Lutheran Church K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry to support people. If you want to help contribute to their travel costs to Florida you can find out more here.

They're all hard at work together.
