LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Bring Christ's Mercy and Compassion to Those in Need at Marysville Print E-mail
Marysville LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Luther, Aaron (in-training), and Shami (St. John, Darien) responded with handlers Tom Bartnick, Jeanne Moore, Toni Bazon, and K-9 Executive Director Rich Martin to the tragic shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Marysville, Washington.

The tragedy occurred on Friday, October 24 and LCC was asked to come later that evening. Members of LCC left Addison at 9 a.m. on Monday, October 27 and upon arrival went immediately to meet with families at a prayer service held at Messiah Lutheran Church. Messiah is home to many students from Marysville-Pilchuck including one who was present in the cafeteria at the time of the shooting.

LCC was invited by Rev. Ron Norris, Disaster Response Coordinator of the Pacific Northwest District, and Rev. Kurt Onken of Messiah Lutheran Church in Marysville. The week was filled with visits to the memorial at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, elementary school visits, individual family visits, and meeting high school students and adults at various community events.

One very special visit came with a visit to a group of special needs children who were at the high school the day of the shooting. The team was well received and showed His Mercy and His Compassion to a hurting community. We continue to keep those affected in our prayers and hope for healing from Christ in this time of need.

We are thankful for several news agencies telling the story of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs bringing their unconditional love to the residents of Marysville:

Yahoo! News
ABC News
Washington Post
KOMO (video)
The Anipal Times

LCC never charges those we serve and rely on the support of others to help cover transportation costs. Thank you for your faithful support!
