This is Russell. He isn't very good at speaking human but he really wanted to say THANK YOU to the members of and contributors to LAPS for helping with his ever growing bills. He was hit by a car on May 7th, 2 days after his 7th birthday, and almost had to have his leg amputated. Thanks to the amazing vet care he has been receiving at Farmers Korner Vet hospital, CSU vet hospital, and Grand Valley Emergency Vet, he was able to keep the leg and is 1 month into his several month recovery. Hopefully he will be back to his favorite activities of backpacking and hiking in no time!
"I am so grateful this organization exists! At the very beginning of the pandemic my cat, Kit, started displaying strange behavior prompting a visit to the vet. Turns out he had to have 8 teeth pulled due to dental decay and inflamed gums. Poor guy. This resulted in quite the hefty vet bill that I couldn’t afford at the time during the pandemic. Luckily, a friend let me know of this awesome organization for Summit County residents. They helped pay for a huge portion of Kit’s bill allowing me to get him the care he desperately needed.
I have lived and worked as a veterinarian in Summit County since 1998. During this time, LAPS has always been there for Summit County Residents and their beloved furry family members.
