Yucaipa Animal Placement Society Wag & Walks Program


Get a little exercise and do something good by enjoying a morning walk with one of the dogs at YAPS. The walk is about 2.5 miles and begins at the picturesque grounds of YAPS, then onto Chapman Heights Road. The walk starts promptly at 8:30am and lasts about an hour. Participants are encouraged to arrive by 8:00am. Please wear sunscreen, bring water for yourself and wear comfortable shoes. Anyone of any age is invited to participate in the walk, however, children under 14 years of age are not allowed to hold leashes during the walk. All children and teens under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent and all participants must have a valid waiver on file.

We are preparing for our biggest event of the year, the 9th Annual Bets For Pets. This year Bets For Pets is on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at Fascination Ranch in Calimesa. Tickets include taco buffet dinner, soft drinks, dessert and chips for play. Of course, there will be plenty of beer, wine and spirts on hand to keep you in a gambling state of mind.

This is sure to be a tail wagging good time! On this evening the theme is fun and the animals of YAPS are sure to be the big winner of the night. All proceeds from this event benefit the homeless pets at YAPS. 

Advance Tickets: $30.00 Per Person

At The Door Tickets: $35.00 Per Person
