On November 5, children at NOC’s Island Lutheran Learning Center were treated to a very special visitor – Zoara the Comfort Dog. Zoara is an AKC Golden Retriever that visits local hospitals, schools, senior centers/nursing/care centers, hospice, charities, and community organizations.
Zoara wears a vest that says “please pet me. ” And the NOC children definitely did that! A service dog helps people feel safe, plus it is nonjudgmental and demonstrates unconditional love.
If everyone could start their day petting a dog that loves them, the world would be a far better place.
