California canines recognized for recovery effort in Uvalde after shooting

Uvalde – Following the mass shooting in Uvalde, two emotional support dogs traveled across the country to support the grieving community. Now they are being recognized for their efforts.

On Friday, the Garden Grove Police Department’s K9 Support Program was honored for its commitment Paws4Students Team effort in Uvalde.

Almost two months have passed since the Robb Elementary massacre on May 24, which killed 19 students and two teachers. Since that tragic day, many organizations and agencies are still supporting the Uvalde community in their recovery.

Some of these agencies are from the San Antonio area that also provide free emotional and mental support.

GGPD shared photos of the two caninesNellie and Misha, on social media.


“We are grateful that SRO Julienne/#K9Misha and SRO Link/#K9Nellie are able to provide social-emotional support not only to our community but to those outside of #GardenGrove,” said Garden Grove PD.
