Welcome Zillah, Seth, and Jared as the Newest LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs-in-Training!

We are excited to begin training a new class of pups along with new volunteer apprentice trainers. God continues to bless this ministry with wonderful volunteers and puppies. On our first day of class this week, we were given a beautiful gift of a double rainbow. The rainbow is a reminder that God is always with us.

Genesis 9:12-13 reminds us, “And God said, ‘This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.”

Kind Words for K9s Print E-mail
I live in Manchester UK and follow you on Facebook. You don’t need me to tell me you are all doing God's work. We had a much loved Goldie for 14 years but now as we are older have two smaller dogs but who are also so intuitive and tuned into our moods especially when we are sad and stressed and then give us comfort. So continued blessings on your mission and nightly prayers from "across the pond."
