Love on a Leash - San Diego North County Coastal Chapter is dedicated in communicating to all of the certified pet therapy teams in the North County.
We want to make finding visit locations easier, and communicating for any upcoming events easier for all of our members.
Love on a Leash is all about our certified teams who volunteer their time with their certified pets who go to hospitals, senior facilities, assisted living facilities, libraries, schools, special educations for both adults and children, and hospice with their pets and who provide smiles and joy for those in need. For many, this visit is the the highlight of their week. For many seniors, we are their only visitor. We try to make each visit with each person we encounter a special one.
Our pets are the one thing that make them feel the instant love they want and need. In some cases, long-term friendships develop. In others, we may never see someone again that we struck a liking to. But, it feels good to know we made a difference in someone's life that day.
There are many pet therapy organizations out there, but we are very lucky to have our founder, Liz Palika right here in Oceanside with us. She came up with a fantastic name, and her great idea of a therapy team in the 80's is now over 2400 strong nationwide.
Welcome teams to Love on a Leash - San Diego North County Coastal Chapter.
