YAAP is always in need of volunteers to help in a variety of areas.  Please consider helping us with your time and support.

If you would like to volunteer please complete the Volunteer Application.


Many of our animals have special needs.  They may be abandoned puppies or kittens, or an animal that needs a quiet environment.  Foster homes provide a temporary safe place until a home or other arrangements can be made.  Please contact us if you would like more information about becoming a foster parent.

We strive to keep our dogs and cats happy and comfortable, but often do not have funds for an extra treat or toy.

  • Canned Dog Food

  • Dog & Cat Treats

  • Purina Kitten Chow

  • KMR Milk Replacer

  • AD Canned Food

  • Paper Towels

  • Bleach

  • Garage Bags 13 & 33 gal.

Other items needed:

Donated items may be dropped off at the shelter during open hours or call the shelter (402-362-3964) to schedule a time to drop off. A receipt will gladly be given upon request.  All donations are tax deductible.
