YAPS is open by appointment only. We have implemented temporary policies and procedures at YAPS to ensure the safety of our volunteers, staff and clients. All adoption meetings require an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled in half hour increments from 11:00am to 3:30pm Tuesday through Saturday. This will keep the number of people on site to 10 or less at a time. Our facility has plenty of open space where you can meet pets and adhere to the recommended 6-10 feet for social distancing. Masks covering your nose and mouth are required when on site.

You can arrange an appointment by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We are accepting appointments up to 5 days in advance. Same day appointments are available as the schedule permits. You will be sent an email response with an "Adoption Inquiry Form" attached. We set appointments according to when we receive adoption inquiry forms and when we have available time slots. We are receiving a record number of adoption inquiries daily.  Adoption Inquiry Forms can also be accessed below and emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots.
