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.

Our walks will be held on the following dates during 2020 (weather permitting):

January: 11, 25   February: 8, 22   March: 14, 28  April: 11, 25   May: 9, 23  June: 13, 27  July: 11, 25

Pawsitive Reading will be offered at 10:30am on

March 14, 2020 at YAPS!

We need you to come read to the dogs at YAPS! Why? Because hearing a human's voice and spending time with a variety of people gives shy, fearful and anxious dogs a chance to trust people. It's great to interact with and play with dogs, but part of a dog being successful in a forever home is learning to be a good companion and not always the center of attention. Pawsitive Reading is also great for young children because there is no judgement on pronunciation or tone. Participants will have the opportunity to sit outside of a kennel while reading to a dog(s). This is a great opportunity for the pets at YAPS to feel love by listening to a soothing, serene voice. Pawsitive Reading helps the pets at YAPS be able to transition into a Forever Home and it helps young readers gain confidence. This opportunity is open to children 5 years and over (must be accompanied by an adult). Bring a book or borrow one of ours!
