Redlands senior residents are now eligible for the Yucaipa Animal Placement Society's senior program in 2011. Previously, YAPS was only able to provide pet care assistance to qualifying seniors in the Yucaipa, Calimesa, and Mentone communities. They are very excited to be able to broaden their service area to include their neighboring city to the east (Redlands).

The program, made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Riverside, provides monetary assistance to qualifying pet owners on a limited income, to insure that the benefits of pet ownership can be afforded to everyone. The assistance can be used to help provide for the pet’s medical needs, be it a routine exam and vaccines or offsetting the cost of an emergency health issue.

To qualify, seniors must be age 65 or older and make no more than $1,500 a month as a single income household and $3,000 a month for a duel income household. To apply for the program proof of income, residency and pet ownership is necessary. Call Yucaipa Animal Placement Society, YAPS, at (909) 790-1440 for more information on how to take advantage of this amazing opportunity!

A new volunteer to Yucaipa Animal Placement Society, Deann Day an employee of Nordstrom Distribution Center quickly went to work campaigning for the local no-kill, nonprofit animal shelter. Organizing a supply drive at the Nordstrom’s center, she printed the shelter’s wish list from their website, distributed it to fellow employees and placed containers in several locations to collect the items. The three bins were left in place for one month, garnering two truck beds, full of items to assist the furry friends at Yucaipa Animal Placement Society.

Pictured here is Deann and fellow YAPS volunteer, Ashlynn, with the supplies she worked so hard to collect. “We are so grateful for volunteers like Deann who jump in, see a need and help us fill it. The generosity of the Nordstrom’s employees was overwhelming, providing us with an abundance of much-needed items. We are so grateful for their support and their continued interest in helping our furry friends, it could not have come at a better time” said Nicole Laffey, YAPS Executive Director.
