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.

Let’s Go Boating at Dillon Marina to benefit LAPS!

Kudos to the great crew at the Dillon Marina/Town of Dillon who organize their annual Let's Go Boating event to benefit LAPS! This year it is scheduled for Sat & Sun, June 5-6th at the Dillon Marina from 9:30-4pm both days. Register in-person only on the day of event (cash, credit, check accepted) for a single activity or a package deal including several of the fun things that will be going on (Adults $20-$50 and Youth under 17 are $10-$25).

Enjoy a 45 minute cruise around beautiful Lake Dillon on either a captained sailboat or pontoon boat at over 9,000 feet above sea level. Children under 12 can only go on the pontoons. Each boat is captained by an experienced individual.

Sorry, this is a NO DOGS event.

There will be Stand-up Paddleboards, Kayaks, Sailing, Pontoon Boats, Fishing Charters and Casting Lessons available, so bring the whole family and your friends to support League for Animals and People of the Summit’s financial aid programs that benefit our community. Please contact Dillon Marina directly for more info at 970-468-5100.

In case of inclement weather, you can book your sail for another time slot. No refund for this charity fundraiser

Sign up in person from 9:30 - 4:00 on Sat, June 5th or Sun, June 6th - outside Marina Office

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.

Here's a link to photos, taken by Elaine Collins who regularly donates her time and expertise to help LAPS...thanks! Click here

Thank you volunteers who helped on that rainy Saturday!
