Saving Lives One Pet at a Time

 

   Yucaipa Valley Animal Placement Society is a no kill, nonprofit animal rescue that strives to prevent the euthanasia of dogs and cats in shelters throughout the region by providing them a temporary safe haven until a permanent loving home can be found.

Save an Animal

GETTING INVOLVED

At Yucaipa Animal Placement Society we have many wonderful dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens available for adoption. We rescue pets from local shelters and take in pets from owners can no longer care for them and we house them at the YAPS rescue facility until they are adopted.

MAKING A DONATION

Yucaipa Animal Placement Society’s (YAPS) mission is to provide a temporary safe haven for orphan pets until a permanent loving home can be found. Donations allow us to carry out our mission to save more lives. Your contributions go towards fees for providing care to the pets of YAPS.

Thank you for your interest in the Volunteer Program at Yucaipa Animal Placement Society. Being a nonprofit, we have a very small staff and lots of furry friends who need daily care and support.

LEARN MORE ABOUT

Pet Adoption

OUR ADOPTION PROCESS

We always ask that the dog(s) that are part of your family come in to meet their new potential canine pal. If you are renting, we need landlord approval before the pet can go home. We require that you meet a pet in person before adopting.

ADOPTING FAQS

Choosing a pet is a very personal decision, and we feel it is best that the person who will be caring for the pet be involved in the process. Since adopting a pet is a commitment for life, we feel it is very important to insure the highest quality relationship for both the pet and family.
