SSF Foundation: SPOTLIGHT on L.A.P.S.!


An integral part of calling Summit County home is supporting our community. Over the past decade, we have given over $300,000 in donations. We gladly support these organizations that make our area the very best place to live. 

Spotlight on:

League for Animals and People of the Summit

L.A.P.S. has been proudly serving Summit County, Colorado since 1990.  Their mission is “to prevent pet overpopulation and the needless euthanasia of helpless animals.”


The volunteers at the League have several well-known fundraisers yearly to raise funds to support a variety of assistance programs for companion animals of low income families living or working in our County.  Yearly memberships are only $20 and as a volunteer based 501-C3 non-profit, you know that almost 100% of the donations go towards the following:

-Adopted shelter animal spay/neuter & medical/surgical assistance
-Local veterinary discount spay/neuter vouchers for any income
-Low income medical assistance grants for companion animals
-Cheyenne Fund dedicated for pets with life-shortening illness
-Chappy Fund dedicated financial assistance for abused pets

If you have a furry companion, it is comforting to know that LAPS has your back!

Get involved – and have a ball!  Head to Frisco for the annual

Mardi Gras 4Paws Parade, inspired by the Bacchus Parade in New Orleans,

Saturday, February 25, 2017 

Mardi Gras 4Paws is a family-friendly fundraiser and so much fun to watch, whether you bring a dog or just hang out with all the furry mutts and enjoy the gumbo, parade and contests.  The weather is always interesting, but the dogs don’t mind and we’ll have plenty of Abbey’s coffee and hot cocoa to warm you up if the wine or beer don’t work for you!

Each $20 paid registration gets a Mardi Gras doggie bandana, beads, dog treats and a token for one bowl of gumbo and a beignet or a drink of your choice and you can buy more tokens at the event. All $5 dog entries will only receive free dog treats and beads, but you can buy extra bandanas and tokens. Pre-registration online is $20 for your first dog and only $5 for additional dogs.

Yappy Hour refreshments from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
