Love on a Leash - Pet Therapy Visit Requests

Therapy Fluffies is brought to you by the gracious volunteers at Love On A Leash (LOAL). Please note that if you have previously requested Therapy Fluffies in the past, requests have changed to a new format.

Visit the Therapy Fluffies every week at The Zone on Thursdays from 1:30pm - 2:30pm!

Information about Pet Therapy Visit Requests

To request therapy fluffies for your event, please contact the Love on a Leash Visit Captain, Andra Lew, at kalanilew@yahoo.com with the Request for Pet Therapy Fluffies information below.

**All outreaches must be requested at least 3 weeks in advance. All requests may not be able to be met due to the high volume of requests. All requests are up to the discretion of the Therapy Fluffies Coordinator.

  • LENGTH OF OUTREACH: 1 - 1.5 hours max, to be determined by the LOAL Coordinator and the event coordinator (while it may not look like it’s a lot of work, the dogs get tired after 1.5 hours maximum).
  • COST: The Pet Therapy Teams are volunteers, there is no charge for their visits.
  • PARKING: Therapy dog volunteers will need free reserved parking provided near the event location, along with driving/parking directions to campus and to the event. This will be requested if your Request for Pet Therapy Fluffies is approved.
