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.
We rarely take private surrenders, but at times in special circumstances, we can assist.
Through our expertise and knowledge we are able to take very young puppies, providing the around the clock intensive care they require.
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 and Moonta, who has come on board and supplied us with subsidised de-sexing, vaccinations, worming and flea treatments.
We are adamant that we break this cycle of unwanted litters of puppies, and to this end, it is a compulsory condition of adoption that the puppy/dog will be de-sexed, and there will be no variance on this important issue. De-sexing procedures will be carried out by YP Vets, and unless there is a condition which delays the procedure, all rescue puppies and dogs will be de-sexed prior to being homed. Thanks to the expertise of our Veterinary Surgeons, we are able to ensure young pups are neutered/speyed before they leave our care.
The puppies will receive an immediate vaccination ( if old enough) when they come to us, and then the 2 week quarantine will be in place. All relevant vaccination info will be provided, with follow up vaccinations vital to the puppies' health and well being. All rescues are immediatley wormed and flea treated and receive a thorough vet check.
YP Puppy Rescue will provide to the new owner all relevant information, eg. Diet sheet, worming and flea treatment regime to ensure the ongoing procedures necessary to keep your puppy happy and healthy. We will always be available for friendly advice.
YP Puppy Rescue is not a business, not an "organisation"; we are just two people trying to make a difference. All money willingly donated will be used specifically for the care of the rescues, and to this end we have opened up a bank account seperate from our own.
