The Senior Program is a program designed to help offset the cost of responsible pet ownership for qualifying seniors in Yucaipa and surrounding communities like Redlands, Calimesa and Mentone. Made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Riverside it provides financial assistance to seniors to help them with their pets health care needs.
Assistance comes in the form of a voucher which can be taken to participating vets that will bill YAPS for the cost of the visit or treatment. The maximum allotted amount paid per senior, not pet, is $250.00. Unfortunately, YAPS cannot guarantee $250 for every senior admitted into the program, as it is based on funding availability.
Since this program is funded by a grant, YAPS has to write for it annually, which means the program starts over every year. What this means for those already in our Senior Program is that they must reapply annually to continue to participate in it, providing current documentation every time.
