Working together to save lives... One Yorkie at a time.
Your help is desperately needed! Won't you please give us a hand with our latest rescued
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PUPPY PURCHASE SCAMS
We recently learned that one or more individuals have been using the United Yorkie Rescue name (or a variation of our name) and created Facebook pages selling Yorkie puppies. These scammers including Evelyn Marie (last name omitted) and others working with her, have defrauded individuals across the country. She requests a down payment or payment in full and never ships the dog. This individual and her partners are not nor ever have been members of our rescue.
United Yorkie Rescue goes through an extensive adoption process that requires an application, personal and vet reference checks and a home visit before any adoption decision is made. We never request a down payment to "reserve" a dog. Only when you are approved and adoption is imminent, will we request you send an adoption fee. We prefer to adopt "locally" and will only adopt out of state in special cases.

It is with much sadness that we share the news of the untimely passing Hal Trindle age 56, long-time supporter of UYR and rescue in general and adopter of two precious UYR rescue dogs Shelly and Sophie. Caring for others was second nature to Hal during his long and successful career in healthcare. His success in the workplace ultimately led him to a position as an Associate Dean at Kaiser University, Lakeland, FL where he mentored and inspired many future healthcare providers and leaders of tomorrow. Hal is survived by his husband Steven who shares his love of animal rescue and advocacy. You may honor Hal’s memory in a tangible way by clicking the DONATE button below or by mailing a check to UYR Treasurer PO Box 23 Wales, WI 53183-0023.

United Yorkie Rescue is pleased to share that a wonderful organization, Wrapped in Love (WIL), 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 could not continue to rescue Yorkies in need without the help of our donors. To date we have rescued: 3972 Yorkies and Yorkie mixes. Our vetting costs to date are: $2,781,000!!
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?

FOREVER OURS - 2022
As of March 2023, UYR has 13 Yorkies in the Forever Ours Program. Their cost of care has been significant and these pups 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.
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. You would receive communications about your sponsored pup and your name would appear in their story on the Forever Ours page.
