HomeWho We AreWhat We Do

Nola Jones has spent her life around animals. She, more than anyone, can attest to the healing power they can lend. In 2006 while taking part in entertainment dog shows, Nola decided she want to bring the gift of canine companionship to children who were battling cancer. She understood the gravity of what they were undergoing and wanted to bring a smile their way.

Unfortunately due to the children's fragile state, her dogs couldn't enter the hospitals or treatment centers. So Nola did the next best thing and opened her ranch to these mini warriors. With the help of co-founder Dennis Driver, her farm expanded and more animals filled its fences. In 2007 "A New Leash on Life" was born. 

Since then its mission of healing has continued and now it invites into its fold those battling cancer of any age, their families and their caregivers. In addition, understanding the sacrifices of our service members, veterans are a  part of the New Leash on Life family, as well as children facing physical or emotional challenges.

Each day it continues to grow. Each visitor leaves their memory mark on us all.
