Who is Esther?
Esther is owned by Holy Cross Lutheran Church and is the first (and so far only) LCC Comfort Dog to be placed in Southern Illinois.
You may have heard of LCC Comfort Dogs- they were the team of dogs deployed to Orlando, Dallas, and most recently Baton Rouge, to offer comfort to the families of the victims of senseless violence and natural disasters.
Esther has received over 3000 hours of training to be well-behaved, calm, and quiet. She travels with handlers who have also been trained to work with those who are hurting. Comfort Dogs go wherever they are invited and we never charge for that service.
