LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Visit 8th Grade Class at CICS Wrightwood Chicago Public Charter School
On Monday, April 9, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Hannah (LCC Staff), Tobias (Lord of Glory – Grayslake, Illinois), Darlin (St. Paul - Matteson, Illinois), and Jacob (LCC Staff) visited with the 8th grade students of CICS Wrightwood Chicago Public Charter School after the death of one of their classmates. Many of students had not had positive experiences with dogs before so having the warm and loving LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs there eased their fears and by the end of the day students were encouraging each other and congratulating each other for petting the dogs. The team also had a very special time with the deceased students’ sibling in the 4th grade.
