Charlotte’s Litter, a program supported by Newtown Kindness, was founded in honor of Charlotte Helen Bacon, a young avid dog lover, who tragically lost her life on December 14, 2012 in Sandy Hook, CT. We, her family and friends, received comfort and love bestowed upon us from local Comfort and Therapy dogs. In honor of our Charlotte and the care we received, Charlotte’s Litter was founded.
The program’s aim is to advocate for animal assisted activity with Therapy/Comfort Dogs and their roles as supportive friends and trusted companions. We strive to create turnkey programs that make Therapy/Comfort Dogs accessible to every man, woman, and child.
