LAPS companion animal fundraiser event schedule

Participate in LAPS by attending or volunteering at one of our many annual dog-friendly charity events! With just two dog parks in Summit County, these dog-friendly community gatherings are especially important for socializing our loyal companions.

Please email us at and help in our mission to care for Summit County companion animals in need. We truly appreciate your generous contributions over the years and look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Puppy smooches go out to the Outlets at Silverthorne for the 2nd Annual Barks & Brews fundraiser to benefit LAPS and the needy pets in Summit County! It was a relaxing and fun afternoon at Timberline Craft Kitchen & Cocktails with live music by The Shaky Hand String Band and lots of great door prizes from the Outlets, Angry James Brewery and Dillon Dam Brewery. Dogs are allowed on the outside patio, so while the happy pups were eating their LAPS doggie treats, their humans enjoyed a great Happy Hour that included cold brews donated by The Bakers' Brewery.

Registration starts at 12:00 noon and the show starts at 2:00 pm. Dog lovers unite in an afternoon of family friendly fun as dog owners show off their companions and compete in costume for prizes. All proceeds benefit the League for Animals and People of the Summit LAPS, so please join us for some fun in the sun alongside Lake Dillon this Labor Day. Great prizes and contests!

Make a Difference Day

LAPS participated in Make A Difference Day on August 29th by cleaning up both local dog parks in Silverthorne and Breckenridge...although we hope every pet owner is doing the right thing and cleaning up after their pets at every visit!

Thank you volunteers who helped on that rainy Saturday!

Kudos to the great crew at the Dillon Marina/Town of Dillon who organized the Let's Go Boating and Virtual Marina Mutt events over Labor Day weekend! LAPS was the beneficiary and garnered over $3,000 and this year, especially, we want to thank the Marina, Town of Dillon, the pontoon captains and Captain Dan, along with all the participants and the LAPS volunteers who made this fundraiser a success!

Let's Go Boating on Lake Dillon annual sailing event will be combined with Marina Mutt on Sun, Sept 6 and Mon/Labor Day, Sept 7th...more details coming soon!

Sorry, no dogs allowed on boats, but take a 45 minute cruise by pontoon or sailboat for $25 Adults/$15 kids under 17. All proceeds benefit LAPS. Enjoy kayaks, paddleboards and more for a small extra fee!

Please note that the prices shown are from last year's event. Contact Dillon Marina for updated info.
