Yucaipa Animal Placement Society (Y.A.P.S.) was founded by Betty Martines in 1957. At that time, homeless dogs and cats were wandering the streets of Yucaipa with no where to go, except to Betty’s home. Y.A.P.S. was born out of Betty’s great concern for their welfare, and her desire to save these animals from certain death. Her vision of a “no kill” shelter came from her conviction of wanting to place these animals into loving homes. Through years of hard work and with the help and support of Betty’s most ardent supporter and husband, Jim, Y.A.P.S. was able to incorporate in 1973 as a 501C-3 non-profit organization.
In February, 2010, we lost a good friend, brother and mentor. Victor Lizarraga was as instrumental in helping others of less fortune or greater need as he was in our industry. His giving was done not for recognition, but as a matter of desire and faith. Most of us knew him as a kind man with a warming laugh, but his heart and kindness were much greater than could be imagined. We will miss him, but we will not let his desire to make a difference end. We will donate a portion of our net proceeds each year to the Victor Lizarraga Memorial which benefits many local charities that were passionate to Victor.
