When listening to K-Love radio yesterday morning, they interviewed someone from Lutheran Church Charities. They were plugging their vision for the use of "Comfort Dogs" in disaster situations, such as Katrina. It was absolutely the best idea I'd heard in a very long time. We've all heard of pets in retirement homes and nursing homes, and how wonderful they are for the residents, but I'd never thought of how comforting and calming a dog could be in a disaster situation. It honestly just made sense.
I just wanted to share their website with you - it looks like these people are doing wonderful things. Click to go to Lutheran Church Charities..... enjoy their site.
