Saving puppies from local pounds, providing a loving, safe environment, then finding homes where they'll be cherished forever.

YP Puppy Rescue is a small private rescue service set up to specifically save puppies from the pounds within our region of the Yorke Peninsula, working closely with the Rangers within these areas. We work hard to reduce the number of healthy, rehomeable dogs left in the pounds that are euthanised unnecessarily, and will, when we can, rescue these dogs as a matter of priority.

Our aim is to provide a safe,loving environment to enable the puppies to flourish, then, when they are ready, we will find them homes where they will be cherished forever.

The older dogs will go into foster homes where applicable, and these dogs will be temperament tested,vaccinated, wormed and flea treated prior to placement in the foster home.

Huge thanks to Dr. Natalie Olding, Senior Vet/Owner of the YP Vet Clinics in Kadina, Maitland & Minlaton, who has come on board and supplied us with subsidised de-sexing, vaccinations, worming and flea treatments. 

YP Puppy Rescue is not a business, not an "organisation"; we are just two people trying to make a difference. All money raised or donated will be used specifically for the care of the rescues, and to this end we have opened up a bank account separate from our own. Donations are gratefully accepted, even a couple of dollars will help.
