We believe

love always leads.

The Love Leads Project is a unique collaboration of individuals and organizations dedicated to saving dogs and preventing animal abuse and neglect. What began as a local service project for a Baltimore-based prosecutor and his children has now grown into a national effort providing first responders – free-of-charge – the tools necessary to humanely respond to dog encounters. To date, The Love Leads Project has provided animal cruelty training and over 4,000 handmade slip leashes to police, sheriffs, firefighters and animal control officers across the country with the goal of alleviating suffering and better protecting dogs who are lost, stray and running-at-large.

How It Started

Why
Love Leads?

What started as a school service project to help local first responders save animals has grown into a national initiative that has distributed over 4,000 free leashes to sheriff and police departments. The leashes are free to first responders and are made of mostly recycled materials.

Just having it handy is a constant reminder that animal abuse is often an indicator of other crimes.”
