K-9 Comfort Dogs Return Home from Manhattan, Boston Print E-mail
gma Ten LCC Comfort Dogs from three states returned home last weekend from an amazing trip to New York City and Boston. K-9 Comfort Dog Moses traveled the furthest, traveling over 3,000 miles on the trip, and our youngest on the trip was Isaiah, at six months old. The trip started with an amazing experience on the set of Good Morning America where the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry was recognized for its work with people from the southwest (West, TX and Joplin, MO) to New York and New England (Superstorm Sandy, Sandy Hook Elementary School and Boston Marathon Bombings). LCC would like to thank GMA and their generous sponsors, especially Hertz, for providing the use of a passenger van for one year.


In Boston the K9's and their handlers worked with Pastor Jeremy Pekari of Messiah Lutheran, Lynnfield MA, and Pastors Ingo Dutzmann and Paul Lentz of First Lutheran Church of Boston in accomplishing many visits throughout the area. They visited Windrush Farm, which houses an equestrian program for developmentally disabled, an Alzheimer facility, a confirmation class, and a Ascension Thursday service. The group continued on Friday with two visits to the Back Bay Boston Police Station and also visiting patients on four floors of the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. Finally, they attended the Memorial Service at FLC, and had a visit with children at Francis Wyman elementary school in Burlington, MA. Truly with God all things are possible!
