Preparing For The Future
As Louie Comfort Dog enters his senior years, and with the ministry’s recent loss of Jackson Comfort Dog, Louie needs help. To continue this important work, Immanuel Lutheran Church has decided to move forward with the Next Comfort Dog for Joplin campaign.
Over the next two months, Immanuel Lutheran Church and Martin Luther School in Joplin hope to raise $15,000 to cover the cost of a new, specially-trained Comfort Dog puppy from Illinois-based Lutheran Church Charities.
Comfort Dogs like Louie are Golden Retrievers, chosen as puppies to receive more than a year of specialized training at LCC’s Comfort Dog school. These very special pups learn to be a calming influence for people in hospitals, nursing care facilities, school classrooms and community events. Joplin’s Comfort Dog Team also responds with compassion following disasters in our immediate area and all around the United States, helping people traumatized by natural disasters, accidents, and acts of violence.
Your Help Is Needed.
At nine years old, Louie Comfort Dog continues to faithfully serve, but Louie needs help. If you would like to help Louie Comfort Dog and his team to purchase the Next Comfort Dog for Joplin, tax-deductible donations are being received online through Givelify or through the mail by check.
The Joplin Comfort Dog Team is operated by volunteers and funded by donations. We never ever charge the people we serve. 100% of donations received go toward the Joplin Comfort Dog work that we are called to do.
