Abstract

New Leash On Life is proud to introduce the Lend a Paw program. Since 2005, Lend a Paw has been committed to enhancing the lives of individuals experiencing physical, mental, emotional or life challenges by providing social and therapy dogs to offer assistance, warmth, compassion, unconditional love and a healing environment.

Lend a Paw volunteers and their therapy dogs visit hospitals, nursing homes, schools for special needs and veterans facilities to provide healing for the patients and students. New Leash On Life also opens up this opportunity by providing specialized training services for individuals who wish to adopt a Therapy Dog for personal use, train their own dog for personal use or join the the LAP program with their own personal dogs. click here for more details
