On Wednesday, September 28, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Abraham & Beloved (Trinity - Hicksville, New York), and LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Claudia (Trinity - Toledo, Ohio) attended a Yellow Ribbon Mental Health Wellness Event for the Air National Guard from Niagara Falls and Syracuse. The focus was on providing ways to relieve stress in a very stressful environment.
The K-9s provided a pleasant, relaxing diversion for the service men and women, their spouses, and the many presenters and vendors. The K-9 handlers had many great conversations with the chaplains there, presenting how faith can be a source of strength in demanding situations.
Almost everyone visited the team's table, petted the comfort dogs, and left with a smile!
