About LAPS

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

LAPS has been proudly serving Summit County, Colorado since 1990 as a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

LAPS raises funds to support a variety of assistance programs for companion animals of low income families living or working in Summit County, Colorado. LAPS is not part of the Summit County Animal Shelter, but we do subsidize their spay/neuter program with a generous annual grant from The Summit Foundation.

LAPS also sponsors a discount voucher program with our local veterinary offices for spay/neuter for any income level for people who live or work in Summit County. Applications for financial assistance or discount spay/neuter vouchers can be picked up at your vet or the Summit County Animal Shelter in Frisco.

Funds for LAPS programs are raised through public grants, tax-deductible memberships, companion remembrances, special events, and always very generous donations from our wonderful local business community.

LAPS does not have any paid staff members, we don't rent office or storage space, and we try not to spend any money on advertising. All event workers are volunteers, so nearly 100% of your generous donation will always be invested directly back into our community for the benefit of companion animals in need.
