On Saturday, June 26, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad), Nigel (LCC Staff), and Samson (Zion - Marengo, Illinois) attended the Suicide Prevention Workshop at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Crystal Lake, Illinois. The Workshop was sponsored by American Legion Post 171 in Crystal Lake. With over 500 people at the workshop, the Kare 9s were busy dispensing comfort, mercy and compassion.

Meet Brutus, Samson and Nigel! These “Kare-9’s” are part of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs organization! These comfort dogs are just one of the ways we are trying to support military vets who suffer from various mental health issues once they return home. We’re here at Immanuel Lutheran Crystal Lake until 3, but the event goes on until 5 today! Stop by, learn, and have fun!
