Please consider supporting YAPS through the Sponsor-a-Kennel Program or by donating towards shelter pull fees.

Every week at YAPS, we do our best to rescue dogs from local shelters. Most local shelters charge a fee to rescue a pet. Shelters charge $10, $25 and up to $55 per pet we save. 

As a pet rescue facility, it is necessary to separate recently rescued pets to avoid possible contamination of our adoptable pets. The length of stay in our Canine Holding Area is 10-14 days and during this time we are paying attention to each pet’s eyes, ears, nose, fecal matter, and respiratory activity. This care is necessary to create a healthy environment for the pets at the YAPS facility and also for the pets that belong to potential adopters. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our facility and the care we provide for the pets.

 Kennel sponsorships will cover the cost of the new kennels in the Canine Holding Area for newly rescued dogs, enabling you to help care for a homeless dog staying at the YAPS Facility. By sponsoring a dog kennel, you help to give a rescue dog the love and care they deserve while they wait for a permanent home.

 Kennel sponsorships are a wonderful way to pay tribute to a beloved person or pet–or to simply show your support of saving the lives of an orphan dog in the community. We will post a personalized placard on a quarantine dog kennel for one year. The placard on a quarantine dog kennel for one year. The placard will bear your chosen name or names. You can become a kennel sponsor:

$250.00 (up to four sponsors per kennel)

$500.00 (up to two sponsors per kennel)

$1000.00 (1 sponsor per kennel)

If you are unable to be a kennel sponsorship, you can still help the homeless dogs of YAPS.  A donation in any amount towards the kennels in the Canine Holding Area or a donation to cover shelter fees and the care necessary to prepare pets for adoption is greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for your consideration and your generous contributions.
