Board Meetings

WELCOME to our meetings!

LAPS meets at 6:30 pm on the third Thursday of each month at Abbey's Coffee in Frisco. You are welcome to attend from 6:30-7pm to get acquainted, but please email a few days prior to confirm it has not been re-scheduled. Our winter meetings (November, none in December, January-March) will now be held via an INVITE to GoogleMeet, so email at least a day in advance for an invitation.

Please join us for some furry family fun, great socializing dog-friendly events and our fundraisers that support less fortunate local pets. Energetic, involved people are always needed to serve as board members and help with special events around Summit County.

LAPS needs Board Members!

We can always use motivated civic-minded citizens willing to dedicate the time and energy necessary to promote community welfare while helping LAPS organize events and process charity grant requests.
