In 2001, the City of Yerington authorized the use of volunteer's to operate the Yerington Animal Shelter. With the help of the Yerington Animal Protection Society (YAPS), and city staff, an Animal Shelter and Volunteer Policy
was jointly created at that time.
Since that time, the volunteer's have been doing an outstanding job and have used numerous creative techniques to find homes for nearly every dog that comes into the shelter.
Interested applicants wishing to become a part of this volunteer group can apply to become a member by filling out a Volunteer Application
and returning it to the shelter.
