Brighton Area Schools Pack of Dogs to visit MSU Library on Monday

As the Michigan State University community continues to try and recover from Monday’s mass shooting event, the Brighton Area Schools Pack of Dogs will be available Monday on the East Lansing campus to assist.

A lone gunman opened fire on Monday night at an academic building and the student union, killing three students and critically injuring five others, including a 2020 Hartland High School graduate.

Karen Storey, who leads the BAS therapy dog program, says the pack, along with “amazing volunteers” will be at the MSU Main Library on Monday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. “to help our Spartan Nation heal.”

Storey invites any BAS alumni to stop by if they have the time.

The importance of therapy dogs in the healing process was confirmed on Thursday when James A. Tarasca, the FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Detroit office, spoke about their benefit at a news conference on Thursday.

“I want to thank the community, especially those who brought comfort dogs,” he said. “It went a long way. It meant a lot to the students and our folks as well. The comfort dogs, they bring a lot. So thank you to everybody that took the time to do that.“
