K9 Comfort Dog Ministry

Bethany is working to get a Lutheran Church Charities comfort dog. Following the Newtown school shooting, the dogs went to Sandy Hook School, and in Boston, they were deployed after the marathon bombing. They have spent time in West, Texas, after the fertilizer plant explosion and have been all over the country. The dogs, about 70 of them, serve or will serve in local communities and are invited to bring peace and comfort to areas hit by devastation and tragedy. If you are interested in being involved in this ministry we are looking for handlers, caregivers, assistant handlers, administrative support, and donations to get this ministry going.
