Yakima Valley

Love on a Leash®

The Yakima Valley Love on a Leash chapter was founded in March 2012. The chapter coordinates multiple group visits each month at Senior Living, Hospice and Palliative Care Facilities, Schools, Parades, and anywhere else LOAL is invited in Yakima and the surrounding towns and counties; many members visit additional sites independently. We also host periodic member socials and participate in community events; we especially love spending time in schools.
