We are livin' on prayer and your support to save lives and change lives. Every week at YAPS we do our best to rescue pets from local municipal shelters. Our facility has a cage free cattery which is 1644 square feet, a small holding area for felines, 12 adoptable dog kennels, 18 quarantine dog kennels in a holding area and 2 play yards. 

As a pet rescue facility, we find it necessary to separate recently rescued pets to avoid possible contamination of our adoptable pets. The length of stay in the holding/quarantine 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. We have found that this care is necessary to creating a healthy environment for the pets at our 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.


YAPS is seeking to remodel the quarantine/holding area for dogs by installing new, individual powder coated kennels and a roof structure over the entire area to shield the dogs from the elements. Currently the holding/quarantine area is 21 separate chain link kennels on top of individual cement slabs with no protection from the elements. The remodel will allow YAPS to continue our rescue efforts the same year round. Right now, we take in fewer dogs during inclement weather. YAPS would also like to add electricity to this area in order to provide heat during the winter months when temperatures range in the 30's at night. In 2018, we have rescued 145 dogs from local shelters in San Bernardino and Riverside County. Our focus is to be a resource in the Inland Empire. All construction will be done on the existing grounds at YAPS. We currently have a matching funds pledge for up to $10,000.00 from a private donor.


Saving lives is costly and we need your help to make it happen.  So let's do this!
