Pontiac Township High School Shows Appreciation for LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Print E-mail
Pontiac Monday February 9, Jeanne Moore, one of the trainers and handlers for the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog program accepted, on behalf of the ministry, Pontiac Township High School’s Distinguished Service Award. The award was from the Pontiac Board of Education and high school administration. It was recognition from the school system for the exceptional service the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog program has provided after being invited to the high school after a student tragedy. “The counseling continues to be important, but the dogs were amazing,” high school principle Eric Bohm told the school board in a summary of events. Since inviting the dogs to the high school, Bohm reported he had successfully passed on the program’s information to other schools, which have reported positive results as well. Jeanne Moore outlined how LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs are trained and used in stressful situations then thanked the board for allowing a faith-based organization to enter the school.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Noah Visits St. Louis City Hall Print E-mail
Noah Aldermen On Friday, February 6th, Noah Comfort Dog from Timothy Lutheran Church in St. Louis traveled to the City Hall in St. Louis. He was accompanied by his handler, Rev. Glenn Nielsen, and Pastor Bill Wilson of Timothy Lutheran. Noah passed through security with no problem; in fact, the guards were waiting to see him. Next they headed up a set of marble stairs to meet some of the Aldermen and Alderwomen for St. Louis. But first, Noah was given the grand tour of the offices, where he met various workers and officials of the city of St. Louis. He was a big hit, and almost everyone stopped to meet him and receive his business card. Finally, they entered the Board Room, and Noah was ushered to his place up front with the President of the Board - Lewis Reed. It took a while to get there because so many wanted to greet him. His handler then spoke for a few minutes about the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog program to the Board of Aldermen, followed by a prayer to open their meeting. Tensions are still high in St. Louis after what happened last year in Ferguson, MO, an inner suburb of St. Louis, and two people mentioned how it was good to have their blood pressures reduced for a few minutes that day!

Tim Hetzner (with LCC K-9 and Kare-9 Dogs) Visit Aurora Fire Station Print E-mail
Lutheran Church Charities' K-9 Comfort Dogs are often called upon by firefighters and police officers to assist people who are going through traumatic events. LCC supports and thanks both police and firefighters in their efforts to serve their communities. Because of our close relationship with first responders, we like to visit them and say "thank you" in person. Last Saturday, Tim Hetzner, with 4 LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and Kare-9 Military Ministry dogs, stopped in at the Aurora, IL Fire Station 10 to do just that. As you can see, the firefighters enjoyed the dogs as much as kids do and, as one of the dog handlers said, "they were a bunch of good guys." Thanks again guys.
