The Young Animal Protection Society Inc. is a non profit organization which depends heavily on donations and support from the public as it receives no government funding.

Yaps relies on donations and fundraising to assist in their job of caring all their homeless cats and dogs.

Any clubs or social group interested in organizing a fund raiser for Yaps would be most welcomed.

YAPS Animal Refuge is now a Tax Deductible Organisation

Donations of Money

If every home donated $5 a year we could rescue and save so many more animals.

All Donations over $2 are Tax Deductible

“Dear Yaps Staff,
I am a pensioner and can not do much to help the Yaps Animals financially or physically .. so I have set my Internet Banking to send you $5 a fortnight .. over a year it will add up and hopefully help you a little.
Keep up the wonderful work.

Kindest Regards
Mrs. Anderson, Cairns”
