YPPR is s small, private rescue committed to rescuing dogs and puppies from the local pounds in our community and beyond.
Our no nonsense approach to rescue and the trust we have built up with local and other community Rangers, is paying dividends, and we are the only rescue operating on the Yorke Peninsula which takes dogs from local pounds, as well as being registered to work with Port Pirie pound.
We do not just rescue puppies, we will help any pound dog (we temperament test first,) whether it is a puppy, and adolescent or in the twilight years, we will do our best to help.
We take in palliative care dogs and provide them with the love and support needed to ensure their time is spent in comfort and as pain free as possible.
YPPR is able to offer assistance to those going into residential care, by providing exceptional support and allowing aged dogs to receive the very best of care, no corners are cut here, this rescue is well known for our ethical and loving environments open to such dogs. Our Vets are on call 24/7,so people can rest assured all avenues of care are covered.
We do our best to bring in all shapes and sizes, all ages and all types, rehoming responsibly with temperaments assessed correctly with any and all issues disclosed and discussed with prospective adoptees.
We also take surrendered puppies from an early age if necessary, providing expert care and lots of love to help them become happy and healthy. We have the time and experience needed to rear well balanced and confident puppies, then finding them suitable, reliable and committed owners.
With a small band of foster carers, we are proud of our achievements.
Offering to de-sex the Mother dogs at our cost, of surrendered litters ensures we help stop the cycle of unwanted litters of puppies.
We ensure every rescue is de-sexed, micro chipped, vaccinated, worm and flea treated as a matter of priority.
Several veterinary clinics work with YPPR, and we are grateful for the support we receive from all professionals.
We are involved within our own community;
YP Puppy Rescue has started a community assistance program where by those finding the costs of caring for their pets a temporary struggle ( any pet!) they are referred to us by the various agencies involved with this initiative, and we will do our very best to assist.
We are also rescuing kittens for the first time, and we will assist in the de-sexing of the adult cat when a litter of kittens is surrendered. Being pro active in the management of pets is vital to us, we are a lot more than "just a rescue"!
We are involved with the Lions Hearing Assistance dogs team, providing suitable dogs to enter their program of training to become service dogs to people all over Australia, one of the few rescues to work with these amazing people.
We are one of the rescues who actively works with the RSPCA SA.
Our aim is to encourage happy, stress free adoptions, an experience you will remember with fondness, the day you pick up your new best friend is a day we want you to remember with much happiness.
We are here to help, and will always be available for friendly advice.
We may be small, but we achieve.

Please complete and submit a pre adoption questionnaire, available here....
(This link takes you directly to the pre adoption form)
This is not a firm commitment from you to adopt.
I will be in touch as soon as practical to discuss your application.
A meet and greet and trial period for all older dogs is required.
Generally, the trial period is 14 days, but we are always able to extend this if we feel the need to.
If, for some reason, the dog needs to come back within that trial period, we happily welcome them back into our care and refund the entire adoption fee.
There is no "admin" fee!!
YP Puppy Rescue does NOT freight puppies or dogs Interstate.
