Help fund raising efforts

LAPS Has these volunteer opportunities:


Vice president - Learn the process for reviewing applications for medical assistance. We have a board member who does this currently, so this position will be a back-up when they are unavailable. This is a great way to understand the needs of the community and how LAPS helps meet those needs. This position will be responsible for updating the application as needed. Work with the president on specific LAPS programs (vouchers, K94K sponsorships) and take on areas of interest or that you have a special skill set with.

Events Director - All events, fundraisers and community outreach, are coordinated by this position with the exception our Dog Bank donation canisters, Grant writing and Colorado Gives. You will have the support of the board and other key volunteers for specific areas of the K94K and other events. Our goal is to get volunteers to assist and / or head up other fundraising and outreach events and report to this position. The number of events and fundraisers is different each year depending on opportunities available. This position is also responsible for coordinating our materials that are taken to all events.

Event / Fundraising Volunteers Non-K94k - Choose an event in 2023 to head up with the help of our Events Director or sign up to be notified to work at an event.

K94K Volunteers Sign up to be in charge of one of the areas for our largest fundraising event of the year. Areas include Silent Auction, Organize a specific Activity, (Food, Games, Paw Painting etc.), Photographer, Exhibitor Coordinator.

Why volunteer with LAPS?

LAPS does not have ANY paid staff members ... just a very dedicated board of directors and our members to help raise money to help our community. These volunteers donated over 1050 hours in 2021 to help with our mission.

We have fun dog friendly events for volunteers to help with either at the event or helping promote the event.

LAPS prides itself on extremely low overhead with nearly 100% of donations invested directly back into our community for the benefit of companion animals in need.

We look forward to seeing you at our next charity event. Please come have some good fun with others, for a great cause.
