Comfort Dog MINISTRY


Rachel is an accredited Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) K-9 Comfort Dog whose mission is to share the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who are suffering and in need. The Comfort Dogs serve as a national human-care ministry embracing the unique, calming nature and skills of purebred Golden Retrievers.   

Her training began when she was 8 weeks old and she is a well-behaved and calm dog.  She works with her team of volunteer handlers and ministry partners in the community and surrounding area.  She interacts with people of all ages at schools, nursing homes, and other facilities where her calming presence is requested.  LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs only serve where they are requested and never charge for their services.
