The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs serve every day in the community in which they are placed and are also dispatched in times of disaster and crisis to bring comfort to all those affected.  LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were in New York and New Jersey visiting victims of Superstorm Sandy, in Connecticut after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and right here in Orlando in June 2016 and 2017 in response to the mass shooting in Orlando. Now, we have an opportunity to have an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog placed right here in Orlando.   

Trinity Downtown is approved, the “Top Dog” team has been trained, and we are officially “in waiting” to receive our own Comfort Dog - the very first one in Florida. We need your help! The cost to begin a Comfort Dog Ministry includes an initial $20,000 which includes the purchase and special training of the dog, handler trainings, and basic supplies/care/vet for the dog, plus an additional $12,000 in annual program expenses. Trinity Downtown has invested $15,000 and we need your support and support from our community to raise an additional $17,000.  To keep up to date on this program visit www.TrinityDowntown.com/ComfortDog. 

The Comfort Dog Ministry has been such a blessing to many people in Orlando already through the teams who have flown in from all over the country during a time of crisis. Through this new placement at Trinity Downtown, in the heart of Orlando, our community will benefit from this special ministry of care and compassion each and every day through visits to hospitals, fire stations, 911 dispatch centers, rehab and senior living centers, schools – anywhere there is a need for care and comfort – in addition to dispatched responses in times of crisis. There is no cost for a Comfort Dog visit, and the program is supported completely by donations.  

The Comfort Dog Ministry strives to bring the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to thousands of grieving and hurting members of the community.  If you have been comforted by this ministry, you understand just how personal and meaningful it can be to a person in need. (Please feel free to share your personal experience in the comments). Having a placement in Orlando will allow us to provide that care & comfort to thousands in our local communities as well as regionally! We invite you to support this amazing opportunity we have to love and care for our community. Please donate today!
