On Friday, January 7, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Barnabas and Jael (Trinity - Hobart, Indiana) and LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Nigel (LCC Staff) visited Rickover Junior High School. Before they visited the students, they met the superintendent, her assistant, and other staff members.
The staff told us that many of the students come from challenging backgrounds, and some have even lost a parent. Most of the students have a pet at home, but they all mentioned that none of them were as soft, fluffy, and calm as the Comfort Dogs. Kare 9 Nigel made a very good connection with one girl and laid his head in her lap for quite some time.
