On Thursday, September 30, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad) and Nigel (LCC Staff) with their veteran handlers visited the veterans at the Cook County Department of Corrections. Approximately 30 veterans listened to an explanation of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry and asked questions.
After the Q&As, the veterans greeted the Kare 9s and received the mercy and compassion they could bring. As the interaction took place, the veterans shared their stories about what led to their incarceration and their hopes for life after they were released. Our hosts assured us they would be requesting more visits.
