LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas first responders are getting a new furry friend.

A therapy dog will help the first responders with depression, PTSD, anxiety and burnout that many first responders experience.

FirstNet is deploying more than 30 animals across the U.S. to support our local heroes.

Las Vegas is one of the cities they picked to send an animal to.

Therapy dogs have demonstrated to have a beneficial impact on mental health.
