Loving Animals Providing Smiles is an all-volunteer organization. We have no staff, no office and minimal equipment. We never charge facilities or clients for our services, and our volunteers pay all of their own expenses: registration, transportation, pet grooming.
We have been helping children and adults in Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties for over nine years. We conduct multiple testing days each year to register Pet Partner teams so they can begin or continue animal-assisted therapy activities in their own communities, as most of these teams are not LAPS teams and many travel from other parts of the Bay Area and Northern California for this service.
If you would like to support our efforts to bring quality animal-assisted therapy services to deserving clients, we welcome monetary donations of any amount. LAPS is a 501(c)(3) public charity Your donations are tax-deductible according to your individual tax situation.
We acknowledge all donations with a personal note.
Please print the Donation Form and indicate if this donation is “In honor of” or “In memory of” a special person or pet, and if you would like an acknowledgement sent to a third party.
Thank you for your support of Loving Animals Providing Smiles and our volunteer efforts to improve the lives of others.
