Addison comfort dogs visit Colorado flood victims
ADDISON – When Lutheran Church Charities of Addison responded to help victims of Hurricane Katrina, Tim Hetzner remembers images of people stranded on their rooftops clutching their pet dogs.
“FEMA was rescuing people, but not their pets,” said Hetzner, president of the nonprofit ministry.
Hetzner said that experience illustrated how important animals are to people in disaster. He began looking for dogs to help with the ministry’s disaster response work, and when a pastor invited LCC to visit Northern Illinois University after the 2008 lecture hall shooting, the ministry brought its very own K-9 Comfort Dogs.
