ct award On Tuesday evening, March 26th, LCC's K9 Comfort Dogs were presented with a Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association Pet of the Year Award for "compassion and dedicated service while demonstrating the intrinsic value of the human-companion animal bond" in recognition of the work of the K-9 Comfort Dogs in Newtown, Connecticut.

Accepting the award on behalf of LCC were K-9 Comfort Dog Addie, ministry co-directors Rich & Dona Martin, Jen Marr (handler at Immanuel Danbury), and Deana Mastropietro (handler and CT DCF counselor).

Senator Richard Blumenthal also received an award for leading new legislation on military service dogs. He said, "Senate passage of the Canine Members of the Armed Services Act is an important first step, but this fight is far from over. These courageous companions and comrades, who save lives on the battlefields by detecting roadside bombs and other threats, now can retire to homes in America with critical care and support." After receiving his award Senator Blumenthal then presented a certificate from his office to the Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs for their service to Sandy Hook and Newtown.
