Such cute dogs there. Im in love with all of them. They all are really good pups and it’s sad when i have to leave them there as I already have a dog of my own. I hope someone will make a lovely adoption as all of them look sad and wanting a home and someone to love.

We adopted our furry friend there. YGRR is a wonderful place. They took excellent care of our boy. They made sure we were the right match for him because they talked to us for a long period, asking us questions and understanding what kind of dog parents we would be. I would highly recommend anyone interested in adopting a dog to contact tgem.

We rescued our pup from YGRR just about a month ago. Their kennel manager is AMAZING! She is so knowledgeable and made the whole process and experience super easy and stress free! I would definitely recommend YGRR!



Beyond disappointing. My fence is 38″. Minimum is 48″ for a rescue. After waiting for months for a dog, finally get an interview and the fence restriction didnt allow me to adopt. I have had 2 dogs in this yard for years and not one ever was able to jump out or attempted to. I live in what I refer to as Pleasant-ville USA. My son and I have a great home, would give the dog a life beyond what any dog deserves, and after waiting for months and paying the fee, get turned down. What a freakin’ joke. Thanks alot, AP

Don’t get me wrong the dogs here are amazing and deserve good homes or foster homes! But the current management does not put the dogs first. 4-5 staff have left in the past few months and they are the ones that care about these dogs. The new co-kennel manager has been written up for abusing dogs. Changes need to be made and the board does not listen.

I filled out an application, because I reviewed their requirements in which I was very qualified. I know I filled it out completely and got an automated message saying thank you for your interest in adopting a dog blah blah blah. Very inefficient with responding, in fact no response came from them at all. I tried calling them, waste of time… no response either just a bunch of automated messages.
