Meet Our Co-Leaders
Janet Downer has been a certified member since 2014 with her terrier mix, Otis and her English Cream Golden Retriever, Marissa. Janet is retired; in addition to Love on a Leash, she volunteers at community events with the San Diego Humane Society. Her favorite aspect of volunteering with Love on a Leash is reading with children who have learning differences. "A dog doesn't care if they read a word incorrectly; the courage an animal gives a child who finds it difficult to identify words on a page is magical!"
