LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry
The LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry is a ministry by veterans for veterans. We strive to serve our military, veterans and their families. In order to do this to the best of our ability we place a dog – named after a K-9 that gave its life in the service of our country – with a veteran. The dogs begin training as puppies and are trained alongside their veteran. When entering the program the dogs are known as recruits. Upon completion of basic training, they are full-fledged Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, or Marines. The Kare 9 Military Ministry dogs visit many places, including VFWs, VA hospitals, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Care Centers, homes of veterans that are home bound, expos, vet clinics, Yellow Ribbon Ceremonies and various other activities to help spread the mercy and compassion of Christ Jesus.
