Comfort Dogs bring a calming influence to people, which allows those troubled or suffering to open up and receive hope and love. They also bring joy to everyone they meet.

She also meets people everywhere she goes, and Lily always brings a smile to young and old alike.
Each Comfort Dog has their own unique Bible Verse. Lily’s verse is 1 Thessalonians 1:3
because we recall in the presence of our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and endurance of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
This bible verse speaks to her mission of love and faith and bringing hope to a troubled and suffering world.
