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.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Visit Firefighter's Children in Normal, IL Print E-mail
LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Five LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs (Ruthie, Luther, Aaron, Samuel, & Shiloh), and their handlers, drove through a snowstorm to be with students and the children of a firefighter who died after medical complications last week.

The team visited both Parkside Elementary and Parkside Junior High. Fire Chaplain Mark Hein met with the family of Firefighter Robert Aper before school started. Rob's two sons loved the dogs and especially Luther with his Kare-9 Military Ministry vest. Rob was an Army veteran. Luther sat with Rob's youngest son (pictured, picture courtesy of David Proeber, The Pantagraph) through his first period of school.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs After visiting at the schools, the team went to Fire Station #3 in Normal to meet with Rob's fellow firefighters. They shared stories of Rob, his love for his family, what a good cook he was, and what a great sense of humor he had. The Bloomington-Normal fire departments have mourned the loss of four firefighters in the last 18 months. Rev Hein led the group in prayer. Please keep the families and communities in your prayers.

Comfort Dog Lydia Leads the North Boston Comfort Team to a Nursing Home Print E-mail
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Lydia When Lydia, the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog at Messiah Lutheran Church in North Boston (Lynnfield, MA), comes through the door at the Daniels House nursing home, the excitement in the voices of the residents is remarkable. The North Boston Comfort team tries to bring her in for a weekly visit and since Lydia is not yet 2 years old, we have told the residents that they are helping to train her and....they LOVE it !!

One wheelchair–bound woman is a huge animal lover and always greets Lydia with her stuffed kitty in her arms. Several gentlemen residents love to pat her and tell us about the dogs they have had. Another woman remembered Lydia’s upcoming birthday and suggested the residents have a birthday party for Lydia. It will probably happen, and what fun that will be for all.
