JANUARY 2014 UPDATE FROM THE BOARD
The year 2013 was another record setter for UYR. We rescued 200 dogs, slightly less than the 207 we rescued in 2012. However we had five liver shunt dogs and several orthopedic cases that drove our vetting expenses higher. UYR spent $156,468 of which $150,706 went directly to treatment, medication, appliances and special food for our rescues. With 96% of all expenses going toward vetting and care of our foster dogs, UYR is in a league with few peers.
Our donors rose to the occasion endowing UYR with $150,588 in direct donations. With the addition of income from the Yorkie Shoppe and special fund raising programs, our total income was $160,535. This is the first time in three years our income has exceeded our expenses. This margin of cushion helps us remain solvent.
Congratulations to our wonderful members, donors, and adopters. We could not have done this without your generosity and support.
BRRRR! Winter has definitely settled in and we know how our pups hate to go outside in the brutal cold. Check out our cozy harness jackets and coats (perfect for walking) as well as our sweaters, fleece snugglies and flannel beds. The Yorkie Shoppe has winter wear and indoor comforts to get everyone through the season. .

Any amount is truly needed and appreciated. A $5.00 donation allows us to purchase Heartworm prevention for a month for a rescue. For $30.00 we can rescue a Yorkie from a shelter that would otherwise be put to sleep. Won't you please consider joining the list of donors on our page to help us continue to save our beloved breed?

FOREVER OURS - 09/01/2011
UYR currently has 6 Yorkies in the Forever Ours Program. These 6 Yorkies will remain with UYR for the rest of their lives. They receive vetting care as needed and this care is provided by UYR and your donations.
Total cost of vetting to date for our 6 Forever Ours Yorkies is: $31,322.49!!
We are happy to say that most of these costs have been covered by donations for the special little ones. Donations for each one are still needed to have money available for their continuing care needs.
We are always looking for people who would be interested in being a 'Sponsor' to one or more of our Forever Ours Yorkies! As a sponsor you will become a cherished person in this dog's life.
