First Wave of LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Arrive in Uvalde, Texas, Bringing a Comforting Presence to Students and Teachers
On Monday, September 5, the first wave of ten LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and their teams arrived in Uvalde, Texas, to be a calming and comforting presence for the students, teachers, and staff as they return to school this week following the tragic Robb Elementary School Shooting in May. The K-9s and their teams will be present at the District’s eight schools for three weeks each morning, from September 6 to September 23. They will also be available to the parents to walk with them during their healing process.
Soon after their arrival, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Abner (Bethany - Austin, Texas), Cubby and Devorah (Redeemer - Fort Collins, Colorado), Damaris (Memorial - Katy, Texas), Elijah (Our Redeemer - Wichita Falls, Texas), Joy (Gloria Dei - Houston, Texas), Katie (Trinity - Fremont, Nebraska), Martha (Bethany - Austin, Texas), Priscilla (Trinity - Lincoln, Nebraska), and Triton (Messiah - Plano, Texas) and their handlers visited with families at the memorial site, with LCC Hearts of Mercy & Compassion, Crosses for Losses still present.
LCC's K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry never goes where we are not invited and never charges those we serve as we bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need. We pick up all of our travel, hotel, and meal costs.
Please prayerfully consider donating to the LCC K-9 Comfort Travel Expense Fund so that we can continue serving the Uvalde community.
