FROM THE BOARD May 2018
After more than a dozen years of exceptional service as Treasurer for United Yorkie Rescue, Carl Sullenberger is retiring from this position. Carl will remain a member of UYR and assist us with website management and the occasional question as we bring our new Treasurer, Judi Laverty onboard. We want to thank Carl for his dedication to the role which is usually a 7 day a week, 365 day a year job. We think Carl deserves a much-needed vacation however UYR was not his only job. Carl also works for his local newspaper as a school sports photographer/reporter and is involved with other local civic organizations. We will miss Carl and his meticulous attention to detail and accuracy. I hope this “retirement” gives him a little more time to relax, but knowing Carl, he will definitely be keeping busy. Thank you Carl for all you have done to make UYR such a success.
United Yorkie Rescue is pleased to share that a wonderful organization, Wrapped in Love (WIL), will be featuring us on the WIL Facebook page and website on Sunday, May 21, 2017 and will be providing UYR with adoption blankets, belly bands, diapers, bandanas, and tug toys. Wrapped in Love is a group of artisans who recognize that everyone can do something in the rescue world and this is "their something". Each item is carefully handcrafted with Love and sent directly from the WIL members' homes to the featured rescue(s). If you would like to learn more and join this amazing and supportive group, visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/groups/artisanswithamission and the website, where all the pledging is done, at www.wil4u.com. In under 3 years Wrapped in Love has pledged over 11,000 blankets plus thousands of other items. This mission will continue until all rescue and shelter dogs find loving forever homes! UYR is proud to have been selected as a recipient of their support.
Can you imagine forcing your pet dog to live his or her entire life in a small wire cage with no human companionship, toys, or comfort, and little hope of ever becoming part of a family? That is what life is like for a puppy mill breeding dog. Help us stop this cycle of cruelty that contributes to pet overpopulation and the suffering of countless dogs by adopting your next pet. There are many places you can adopt your next pet, such as an animal shelter, humane society, or a rescue organization. Click on our Looking for Love link and check out all the beautiful Yorkies in our foster program. If you don't see what you are looking for, we recommend visiting www.petfinder.com. You might be surprised to see all the pets available in your area. Remember: Adopt, Don't Shop!
Check out our adoptable pups on Looking for Love to find your perfect companion. If you are interested in adopting a dog not located in your state, please note that we do not ship dogs via air cargo. Out of state transport guidelines are explained on our online adoption request form.
UYR is in need of foster homes. We have many more requests for surrender than we can handle. If you would like to become a UYR foster person, please, fill out a "Volunteer Application."
UYR could not continue to rescue Yorkies in need without the help of our donors. To date we have rescued: 2,905 Yorkies and Yorkie mixes. Our vetting costs to date are: $1,632,000!!
Any donation amount is truly needed and appreciated. UYR fully vets all its foster dogs, updating vaccinations, spaying and neutering, addressing much needed dentals which cause serious health issues down the road for any dog. We are also one of the few rescue groups that can take on serious conditions like Liver Shunt, orthopedic injuries and tumor surgery. Won't you please consider joining the list of donors on our page to help us continue to save our beloved breed?
