LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Continue to Bring Calming Presence to School and Community After Student Deaths Print E-mail
Pontiac We were yet again saddened at another loss of a Pontiac Township High School student this past Friday night.

This was the third death of a high school student in one week in Pontiac. "Kimmy" the young girl who died Friday evening in a car accident was returning to the school after attending the funeral of one of the other students.

Over the course of 4 days, 20 LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs have been with the students and faculty at Pontiac Township High School bringing the Mercy, Compassion, Presence, and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to this grieving community.


Losing a member of the community is always a tough challenge for those who are affected. We ask that you please keep those in the school and community in your thoughts and prayers.

LCC never charges those we serve but rely upon supporters to help cover our travel expenses. Thank you for your prayers and support.

LCC Honored by Village of Addison Print E-mail
Village Hall On Thursday, December 11, LCC was invited to attend the Village of Addison's annual Christmas party.

The Administration department chooses a charitable organization each year to donate to instead of exchanging gifts. This year they have picked the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs as their recipient.

police stationFive LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were in attendance (Olypmia, Ruthie, Martin, Howe and Zina) along with several members of the LCC staff. K-9 Director Rich Martin was asked to speak on behalf of the ministry and give some background on the comfort dogs and what they do.

After the dinner the group went to the Addison Police Administration to give the officers a Christmas Card. Upon arrival they were greeted by Officer Omar Brucal who accepted the card on behalf of the department.

LCC was then given a challenge coin from the department, which is a signifier of being "one of the family". The dogs took one last trip to the Addison Fire Department to thank them for all they do for the community.


Both visits were greatly appreciated and LCC would like to extend a gracious thank you to all of our public servants and what they do in order to keep communities around the nation safe. May you keep them in your prayers, not only at this time but throughout the year, as they serve you and your community.
