Who We Are

The Dahn Family

Michael and Jennifer Dahn are from central Illinois. They have two kids: Chloe and Jordan. Mike and Jenn have always had a passion for helping others. Soon after completing a disaster response training program through their Lutheran Church, they were called to respond to a tornado that ripped through a small town in Illinois. It was at this disaster site they were able to visit with a comfort dog team. Jennifer instantly fell head over heels for the comfort dogs and wanted to learn more.

Mike and Jenn began to dream about owning their own comfort dog to help others within their community. After many months, lots of research, and family and friends to support their vision, they started working to create their own comfort dog ministry. In April of 2014, PawPrint Ministries was born. It is the mission of PawPrint Ministries to use their comfort dog teams to assist hurting hearts in central Illinois and beyond.
