Stories of Healing in Rochelle, IL Print E-mail
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were a beacon helping the suffering at the Beacon on the Green in Rochelle. LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Tara and Zippy (Trinity Roselle), along with Eve and Claudia (LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs in-training) were welcomed with open arms by the various agencies present to assist those that have been affected by the tornado. We met so many Red Cross volunteers. The attendance was reported to be between 25-30 families during our time there. Residents entering were obviously stressed but would detour their path to come spend time learning about and spending time with the wide range of ages of the Comfort Dogs.

One woman that walked in the door saw the dogs and immediately went to her knees and started to pet the dogs and cry. As she was petting Eve and Claudia she mentioned how badly she missed her dog, who has been staying with friends since the storm. Her family lives in the country; their home was heavily damaged and her car was destroyed. She was home alone with her kids when the storm hit because her husband was trucking in Wisconsin. She talked to him during the storm while keeping the children safe in the basement.

Within minutes of her leaving us, a Red Cross volunteer came requesting a Comfort Dog to sit with another woman who was having difficulty. Yes, it was our new friend, so Tara and her handler, Toni, went with her. She sat petting Tara as she talked with the agency representatives. Later, Zippy and her handler Janice took Tara's place and continued the healing. On her way out the door she needed hugs from all the dogs.

Everyone was so happy the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were in attendance and are looking forward to seeing them again on Thursday.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Visits St. John's Lutheran Church and Early Learning Center, Darien, Illinois Print E-mail
Common Core Adeena (St. John Lutheran Church - Burlington, IL), an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog was able to spend considerable time with special needs preschoolers last week at St. John's Lutheran Church Early Learning and Development Center. Adeena brought out great kindness and encouragement between the children. The shyer ones were guided over to Adeena by the more confident children. One little boy explained to a very hesitant classmate in the most encouraging way that Adeena was kind and gentle and that Adeena would be their friend forever. Another boy came up and stared very, very intently right into Adeena's eyes and then he would look up at the handlers and simply smile. No words were needed. The comfort was evident.

Edison Park Lutheran Church Sunday School Gets Furry Visitors Print E-mail
Sunday School On Sunday, April 12, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs-in-Training Pax and Tabby joined Barnabas (Holy Cross - Portage, IN), a fully trained LCC K-9 Comfort Dog, at Edison Park Lutheran Church in Chicago, Illinois. Their handlers were able to tell the congregation about all the work the Comfort Dogs do, from meeting kids in Sunday School to deploying to disaster situations – like a lot of the things the dogs did this weekend – to bring a little peace in times of trouble and sorrow. One little girl even wore her dress with dogs on it to welcome their furry visitors.

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