On Thursday, April 22, the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and their teams were invited to be with the students at Delavan-Darien High School in Delavan, Wisconsin, to provide comfort to the students and staff devastated after the loss of one of their own. Peter was a senior at the high school who tragically lost his life in a car accident.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry was blessed to send the following teams who quickly responded to this need:
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Benjamin (LCC Staff)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Eunice (LCC Staff)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Hannah (LCC Staff)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Samson (Zion - Marengo)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Mary (St. Paul - Janesville)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Rhoda (Prince of Peace - Menomonee Falls)
Many of the students clung to the Comfort Dogs, and some were crying. The Comfort Dogs and handlers were also able to spend time with Peter’s friends, who are grieving his loss . One of the teachers remarked how amazed she was that our LCC K-9 Ministry had such heavy volunteer involvement, and the dogs were so highly trained, calm, welcoming, and loving.
There were three Hearts of Mercy & Compassion and a cross available to sign. The students lined up to share fond messages and memories of Peter.
