On Friday, February 11, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Jael (Trinity - Hobart, Indiana) and Myra (St. Andrews - Park Ridge, Illinois) visited the Lincoln Park Community Services coping skills class.
The handlers introduced the participants to Jael and Myra and explained how the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs could help people cope with their different situations.
Many were thrilled to meet Jael and Myra and wanted to take pictures with them. We met folks from all different backgrounds. The teams also gave everyone a pair of warm socks, some hand warmers, granola bars, and a gift card for Valentine’s Day.
When the teams left, everyone thanked them and said how much they appreciated Jael and Myra, and their handlers visiting with them.
