LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Amos
Amos is a four year old pure bred Golden Retriever. He was the first Comfort Dog in Virginia and is hoping to serve people all over the DC Metropolitan area.
Amos has received over 2000 hours of training and is no ordinary dog. He is able to visit people in long-term care facilities, memory care facilities, hospice care, hospitals, schools, offices and in the community. Furthermore, Amos' team includes a retired police officer and a veteran, which provides ministry opportunities with first responders.

September 22, 2021 - Bringing Comfort
During his weekly visits with the residents of Maple Grove (Ashby Ponds), Amos met a new friend who is a caregiver. Marie Grace was instantly drawn to Amos because she has been missing her own yellow lab back home in the Philippines. After several hugs and smiles, she returned to her work and told us, "You made my day so happy and I'm comforted because of Amos, thank you. I have been feeling bad lately, but I feel good when I hug him."
Heavenly Father, these days are more emotionally and physically demanding than ever before. Help us to listen, love, and care for each other in Jesus' name, Amen.
