On Saturday, October 5, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Aaron (St. John’s - Napa, California), Micah (Light of the Valley - Elk Grove, California), and Reuben (First Lutheran - Yuba City, California) were invited by Nursing Program Director, Dr. Sonja Sheppard, to attend a special event at Unitek College in Sacramento, California.
The K-9s had comforted the staff and students earlier in their nursing school journey when their original nursing school at Brightwood College, Sacramento, closed unexpectedly.
It was difficult for the students and staff during the time of transition not knowing if, and where they would complete their program. Thankfully, God answered their prayers and the Unitek College Nursing Department welcomed the students and staff to join their program.
The K-9s were honored to receive the invitation to attend their “pinning ceremony” and a well-deserved celebration. Aaron, Reuben, and Micah Comfort Dogs were presented with awards and their own special nursing program pins.
