Meet Abner!

Abner is part of the Lutheran Church Charities K9 Comfort Dog program. 

Abner enjoys working, tail always wagging. As part of his training and experience he has been exposed to many different locations and situations; urban to rural. Abner has visited churches, schools, libraries, nursing homes, fire & police departments, shopping centers, restaurants, and airports. 

Abner's birthday is May 2, 2015. He enjoys playing with a Chuck-it-ball and Kong Frisbee and of course loves his end of day massages and grooming time. 

We do not charge to visit people or places and our ministry is completely funded through donations.  


If you are interested in volunteering for this ministry or requesting information on having the dog visit a location or individual contact

You can also follow Abner on Facebook and Instagram!
