Meet Teddy!

Teddy is a sensitive soul with a playful personality. He has been through a lot in his 5 years and will need someone who can be patient and allow him to blossom in your home. Teddy is a survivor. An unfortunate incident of animal abuse led to blindness in his right eye when a broom handle was shoved in his eye. Teddy isn't so bothered by only having one good eye but he isn't always sure who he can trust. He needs lots of love to heal the wound in his heart. While slow to warm up to strangers, he gives his full love and attention to those who are patient enough to wait for it. Like any basset hound, he likes to sniff for adventure and loves to hold a conversation. His ideal home has no cats but he is a little curious about them. While he loves to play with another dog, he can sometimes be selective about the company he keeps. Once you are in Teddy's heart, he will forever love you!

Sponsor-a-Pet

As a YAPS supporter, we consider you part of our team. It is going to take all of us coming together virtually to get through this quarantine period. The simple truth is YAPS cannot exist without donations. 47% of our budget comes from private donations.

For every donation of $50.00 or more, we will place your name or your pet(s) name on an available pet of your choosing. All pets are eligible to have multiple sponsors. As you can see, Pasadena is being sponsored in memory of Libby Eskenas. You can choose to sponsor "in memory" or "in honor." Please mention the name and dedication type in the notes section of your online donation. Your donations will allow YAPS to continue saving lives during this quarantine.   

You can donate without leaving your home.

You can click here to donate through our website which takes about one month to reach us: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/560601.

You can also donate through PayPal and the funds will reach us immediately: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=XKWQ2RWM3NWYE&source=url.

Donations can be mailed in to:

YAPS, P.O. Box 199, Yucaipa, CA 92399

We are a nonprofit, so we are used to operating on a tight budget. Unfortunately, YAPS will not survive this quarantine without monetary donations. It takes approximately $360,000.00 per year to run the YAPS facility and loosing donations right now will change the way we operate in the future. Thank you for your consideration!
