LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Shiloh Visits Dixon, Illinois Students, Staff, and Family Members After Shooting
On Wednesday, May 16, a shooting occurred at the Dixon High School in Dixon, Illinois. Thanks be to God, there was no loss of life. The quick actions of the school resource officer led to the apprehension of the alleged shooter.
At the request of the Dixon city manager, Shiloh Comfort Dog (Christ Our Savior – Dixon, Illinois) was immediately deployed to help comfort students at a shelter location. The Dixon Schools superintendent also requested assistance for school staff, students, and family members over the next several days during counseling sessions, graduation rehearsal, and the return of students to class.
The Dixon Public Schools #170 Superintendent, Margo D. Emden, wrote the following comment on Shiloh's Facebook page:
"Thank you for being with us this week. The kindness you've shown will never be forgotten. Supporting our students and staff meant so much to us. God bless the work you do."
LCC is blessed to have Comfort Dogs in many communities across the country, ready to serve others in their time of need.
