Rockwall/Royse City

Love on a Leash®

The Rockwall/Royse City chapter was founded in September 2012. Chapter members visit senior assisted living facilities, independent living homes, schools, the Rockwall Boys & Girls Club, libraries, and social events in our communities. Chapter members live in 5 surrounding counties and meet quarterly to discuss business and enjoy social visits with our dogs. Chapter activities are posted on our Facebook page and reminder texts are sent to members before each event. Ongoing training is offered to keep teams’ therapy skills sharp; of course it is completely voluntary and free of charge.
