AMITYVILLE -

Seven therapy dogs traveled to Amityville to bring some joy to seniors.

Paws of War brought the therapy dogs to the Dominican Village Assisted Living Community.

Residents in the facility say it's an event to which they look forward.

"We all just get so much from the pets," said Norma Cummings. "We get so much love and they seem to know. They take to us immediately because they're filling a void for us and it's absolutely wonderful."

Paws of Wars is an organization that provides service dogs to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
