But in the midst of processing, the senior class was preparing for graduation. LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry teams worked in the school between specific groups – high impact students and their parents, senior class graduation preparation, and students just trying to end the school year and pick up their belongings. Teams had the opportunity to work with the students and their parents in large gathering groups as well as one-on-one time with exhausted students who found comfort and warmth to fall peacefully asleep with the dogs. Before departing, we were asked to spend time with a group of parents and students who were waiting to board buses to travel and spend time with President Trump. The Comfort Dogs provided the opportunity for those waiting to concentrate on something else and soothe their nerves.
Plans are already underway for LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs to return to Santa Fe High School to greet students in August. The importance of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog’s presence was surely understood and communicated to us as the school administration promised to keep in touch for future visits.
Join us as we continue to pray for the Santa Fe community and as they continue to heal and find hope through Jesus Christ.
LCC never charges those we serve. Your gifts to the K-9 Travel Fund are greatly appreciated.
