If you own a dog, you already know what great companions they are. The local group 'Love On A Leash' is making sure their therapy pets spends countless hours each week brightening people's day.

Volunteers take their pets to nursing homes , schools, senior centers and anywhere where people need to be cheered up. The group is always looking for new members to help fill requests from the community. Tammy Venning is a volunteer with the group and says the work is a lot more than just rewarding.

"Just total joy, I've never walked away from a visit where we weren't exhausted because of its hard work but also just know that you are walking away and they feel better," said Venning.
