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.
Due to the current situation we have cut our hours of operation and our phones will only be manned occasionally.
Please leave a message as we will definitely be checking messages a couple time a day or better yet send an email to email@example.com as emails will be checked regularly
We are still OPEN for boarding for both dogs and cats, there is an online boarding form on our website www.yaps.org.au or you can leave a message and we will get back to you ASAP.
