Save an Animal
Adopting a Pet
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.

What Drives Us
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.
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. We rely heavily on our dedicated volunteers to help us fulfill our mission of helping homeless pets in the Inland Empire and surrounding areas.
Thank you to the Petco Foundation
