Yappy Tails Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the care, rehabilitation, and adoption of domestic animals. Staffed by volunteers, our main goals are:

  • Remove animals from homeless situations
  • Provide medical care and rehabilitation as necessary
  • Place animals in secure adoptive homes

There are many ways you can help the animals; you can foster, volunteer, adopt or donate to our dog rescue.  We could not do what we do without your support!

How Your Donations Help

Even though we’re volunteer-powered, running a dog rescue will always cost money. Vet bills, transport costs, pet supplies, and many other miscellaneous costs eat into our budget. Though we take donations for each dog adopted, donations and fundraising allow us to save many more lives than we could otherwise.

There are many ways to donate to our rescue, including through the Paypal:

Alternatively, you can write a check payable to YTAR and mail it to us:

Caring for our animals requires a lot of time, love, money, and supplies. Listed below is a “Wish List” of supplies needed. You can also donate items from our Amazon Wish List

If you donate an item through Amazon, please let us know (Amazon sends it to us anonymously) so that we can properly acknowledge your contribution. Email your full name, address and item purchased to: [email protected]

Donating wish list items helps us with the day-to-day care of our animals and supports our operational needs.

THANK YOU! Contact us and we will arrange to pick up the donations.  All donations are tax deductible.


Help Us Pay Vet Balances

As a small rescue, YTAR always needs your help.  As we continue to rescue, we also continue to accumulate vet bills.  All our animals are vetted by the wonderful staff at River Valley Animal Center. Please feel free to contact them directly if you’d like to donate directly to our account.

We would like to thank everyone in advance for loving animals and doing so much for Yappy Tails. You are all a true blessing to us.
