YAPS Animal Refuge rescue abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats in Cairns area, Far North Queensland. Our refuge animals stay with us and are lovingly cared for until their ‘forever families’ come along to adopt them. Some end up living out their days with us as permanent guests.
YAPS also provide a dog and cattery boarding service – the biggest and best in the region!
All our facilities run so successfully because of the huge hearts and hard work of our dedicated staff, volunteers, supporters and members.
YAPS CATS are now located at
167 McCoombe St Cairns (entrance of Cava Cl, opposite Arnel Fencing)
The cats for adoption is located in a separate building across from the Cat Boarding Facility (on the same property).
Viewing from 10.30 am to 4 pm 7 days a week.
Dogs for Adoption and Dog Boarding will remain at our Smithfield location.
