Meet Regina!

Regina is beautiful, young, smart, active and lives to enjoy life to the fullest. Regina is

 a 1 year old, Shepherd Mix. Regina is in the market for a Forever Home and a best friend. She is a wonderful companion for walks, hikes, jogging or just playing fetch. She is one dog that is full of joy and energy! She can be around other dogs for visits but prefers to be the focus of the human she loves. Her prey drive is high, so she hasn’t learned to enjoy the company of cats, rabbits or chickens.

Regina is waiting to meet you. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can send you all the details on how to set up an interview with Regina. 

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!
