I'm Coming!

More: Lucy is a certified therapy dog and supports four non-profit organizations in the Washington, DC area that provide pet therapy to a wide range of individuals. Originally raised to be a service dog with Warrior Canine Connection, Lucy primarily works at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as an American Red Cross volunteer bringing smiles, hugs and kisses to the wounded warriors receiving treatment, the military and professional staff working tirelessly to heal the wounds of war, and family members supporting those hospitalized. Lucy also visits the elderly and infirm through Fairfax (VA) Pets on Wheels, children at schools and harried travelers with People Animals Love, and when a crisis or natural disaster arises, Lucy heads out to provide comfort in difficult situations with HOPE-Animal Assisted Crisis Response. Throughout the pandemic, Lucy has continued her service by being read to by children via Zoom. Photo by Connie Murzyn.
