Comfort Dog Ministry
“By faith Abraham when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” Hebrews 11:8
aunched in August 2008, the Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry is a national human-care ministry embracing the unique, calming nature and skills of purebred Golden Retrievers. The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and handlers, Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs and veteran handlers, and LCC K-9 Police Ministry Dogs and law enforcement officer handlers are a bridge for compassionate ministry, opening doors for conversation about faith and creating opportunities to share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ.
Abraham Comfort Dog arrived in Hicksville, New York at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in early April, 2019. He is the first for the state of New York! The weekend of April 27/28 he and his team were commissioned to serving the church, school and community at large during the Passing of the Vest. We are so blessed to now be interacting with people at churches, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, and events in our community, and in disaster response situations. Stay tuned for updates as Abraham and his handlers work to spread the “mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ with those who are suffering and in need.” You can follow Abraham and the Comfort Dog Ministry on Facebook by clicking here.
