On Saturday, August 20, the River Place apartment complex in Deer Park, Wisconsin, was struck by lightning and a massive fire occurred, leaving many families displaced. On Thursday, August 25, many local agencies were brought together at the Victim’s Assistance Center to help families with their next steps. All those impacted had to move for safety reasons, and many lost their belongings.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Charity (Brookfield - Brookfield, Wisconsin), Malachi (St. Matthew - Hawthorn Woods, Illinois), Mary (St. Paul's - Janesville, Wisconsin), Rhoda (Prince of Peace - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin), Samson (Zion - Marengo, Illinois), and Tobias (Lord of Glory - Grayslake, Illinois) were hugged and snuggled by many who showed up; even some volunteers needed a little extra love.
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and their teams were happy to be present and give love to anyone who came to visit and help these families get through to the next step.
