The St. Louis Chapter of Love on a Leash is committed to bringing comfort, healing, and happiness to folks in our community by sharing registered and insured therapy pets. Our pet therapy teams are comprised of remarkable human volunteers who, along with their very own special canine or feline pet partners, make smiles happen as they unleash the love.
Over 2,000 visits were completed by St. Louis Chapter pet therapy teams during 2017. Being a smaller all-volunteer group, the demand for our services often outweighs our ability to grant every request.
