On Wednesday, January 17th, the residents at Lutheran Home in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, gathered for a special presentation featuring the LCC K9 Comfort Dogs. LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Charity (Brookfield Brookfield, Wisconsin), Dora (Lutheran High School Association of Greater Milwaukee - Milwaukee, Wisconsin), Sage (Concordia University Wisconsin - Mequon, Wisconsin), and Rhoda (Prince of Peace - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin) visited with the many residents and the handlers shared the history of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry, the training program the comfort dogs go through, and their work in Wisconsin.
Melissa Pflug, who invited the teams, shared:
"The residents (and staff) absolutely loved the visit from the comfort dogs and their handlers. This was evident from both how their faces brightened with joy as well as from their words of praise and thanks. The visit was truly a wonderful opportunity for everyone to enjoy fellowship rooted in God’s Word and expressed through His beautiful creatures that give much comfort and love to those in need. The residents’ also are very happy to be able to support this mission with part of their January chapel offering."
It was a perfect day filled with love and comfort for some very special seniors!
