Caleb Comfort Dog

The Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry is a national human-care ministry embracing the unique, calming nature and skill of Golden Retrievers.  The Comfort Dog is a bridge to compassionate ministry, opening doors for conversation about faith and creating opportunities to share the mercy, compassion, presence, and proclamation of Jesus Christ in the Valparaiso Community.  The Comfort Dogs are working animals that receive over 2,000 hours of training to interact with people of all ages and circumstances who are suffering and in need.

Caleb is the Immanuel LCC K-9 Comfort Dog. He has been specially trained by Lutheran Church Charities in Illinois to interact with people at churches, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, events and in disaster response situations.  If you would like Caleb to visit you or your organization please, contact us at
