Kare-9 Squad Celebrates Their First Birthday Print E-mail
Birthday Celebration On Monday, June 29th the Pizza Hut on Willard Ave in Freeport, IL held a 1 year birthday party celebration for several of the LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry dogs. The dogs were brought into the restaurant and people and kids petted them as they visited their tables. We also had chairs set up outside to greet customers as they arrived for dinner. In a generous show of support, the waitresses gave up their tips for their shift to help raise money for the Kare-9 Dogs. Customers also gave donations to the ministry while coming in and out of the Pizza Hut. Thank you to everyone who donated to help further this ministry of veterans serving our military, veterans, and their families.

Attending this event were: Bob & Barb Royce (“Blitz”), Marv & Yoshiko Hanks, (“Brandy”), Dale & Joyce Sasse (“Britta”), Keith & Judy Stanton (“Butch”), Fred & Kathy Vanstrom (“Flex”), Raleigh & Linda Showens (“Spike”), Ward Dittmar, Chuck & Diane Sorn, and LCC staff members Alex Brooks (“Buck”), Jim Morrison (“Brutus”), and Norm Gotsch.

Pontoon rides were given on the Fox River, and the opportunity for fishing was provided. In addition to the Kare-9 Military Ministry Dogs, a team of miniature ponies used as therapy animals for veterans also attended.

Coal City Comfort Print E-mail
Coal City The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were in Coal City, IL to comfort families and first responders that have endured their second tornado in just two years. On Friday, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Ruthie, Hannah, Jacob, and Samuel (St Paul – Lockport, IL), along with Rich Martin, Bob Vossel, Sharon Flaherty, and Rev Mark Hein, spent time at the relief center in Coal City where they meet with displaced families and volunteers. At noon, the team was invited to be with police and firefighters at Station 1 in Coal City where they met with Fire Chief Sheldon and Police Chief Best and many of the other first responders to the devastating tornado. Chief Sheldon is also a member at St Paul, Lockport.

On Saturday, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Adeena (St John – Burlington, IL), Angel (St John’s – LaGrange, IL), Barnabas (Holy Cross – Portage, IN), Susie (St Peter – Arlington Heights, IL), Zippy (Trinity – Roselle, IL) and Comfort Dog in-training Lex arrived at the relief center in Coal City and made many new friends. They visited with one girl whose dog was missing for two days after the tornado but is now back home safe and unscratched, a family with two young boys (ages 2 and 3) whose home is standing and almost livable except for the shards of glass embedded in the walls, two girls who cried tears of joy because they now knew each other was safe, and the dad who said, “Did you see the house on the news split in half and turned sideways? That’s my house but everyone is safe.” The dogs and their handlers also went to the firehouse where some were going on 48 hours on duty and their families were at the station so the kids could see their parents. But one thing rang clear, Coal City IS family and IS ready to rebuild again!
