The original chapter of Love on a Leash (LOAL) was founded in 1984 in California by award-winning author and dog trainer Liz Palika. The organization was incorporated in 1995 as The Foundation for Pet Provided Therapy (“FPPT”), a California public-benefit nonprofit organization. It is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization.
To date, there are over 900 members in 28 states, with volunteers forming new chapters so that they have the opportunity to visit with others and to share common concerns and strategies.
