K9 Comfort Dog 


Rhoda would like to once again thank our congregation for bringing her to us. She is happy, healthy  two year old and has been with us for one year.

We can be thankful for a wonderful and dedicated Team that has helped us expand Rhoda's visitations over the last year. God has truly been with us. Rhoda is currently going to Community Memorial four times weekly, Luther Manor, Riverview, Cedar Creek, the Arboretum, Silverado, Dickson Hollow, shut-in visits and many special presentations.  In October we began weekly visits to  the Cancer Care Outpatient Clinic and Medical Units at St. Joseph's Hospital -West Bend. We continue our goal to bring Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus to all who need comfort. 

The holiday season kept Rhoda very busy attending two Christmas parties for the children of military families and presentations to local community groups.

Community Menorial Hospital has been very receptive of Rhoda. In fact, the other hospitals in the area area a bit jealous and have approached us to bring Rhoda there. While we do not have the time to serve the main Froedtert system as requested, we are now serving  St. Joes in West Bend. 

We could use additional handlers to help with the additional requests. If anyone is interested please contact Peggy. Requirements include a three day training session in Illinois and availability of 1/2 day per week - including your own transportation. You will love it! Anyone is welcome to accompany a handler and see if this is a calling for you.

Rhoda  enjoys attending the  worship services and is greeted by many members, especially the children. Check out her facebook page at www.facebook.com/rhodacomfortdog  to see who she's visited.
