League for Animals and People of the Summit

L.A.P.S.' mission is literally a matter of life or death - reducing pet overpopulation and needless euthanasia of healthy animals through spay/neuter programs and providing financial assistance to low-income families for veterinary services that will assure a happy, healthy life for their pets.

Need help with some veterinarian bills? Download our Assistance Form and check out the options under "About LAPS/Programs".

L.A.P.S. also offers Discount Vouchers for spay/neuter only for any income (must pick up voucher at the Summit County Animal Shelter in Frisco and show proof of residency - no application.) Vouchers must be used at a local veterinary office.

Please keep LAPS in mind for the annual Colorado Gives day. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the incentive fund, increasing the value of every dollar donated.

When: 24 hours starting 12:01 am MST on Tuesday, December 4
