Help Harley from Yorkie Friends Rescue.

This is so sad.............My name is Harley and I am about four years old and weigh just under four pounds. A nice lady found me running the streets and called Yorkie Friends Rescue to come and get me. I have just gotten home from four days in the hospital where the doctor said I have liver disease and abcessed teeth. My medical bills are already over $1,000. Could you please find it in your heart to help Yorkie Friends Rescue with my medical bills? I would really appreciate it. I am still very ill. Even though I am very small, I am very possessive of my foster mom. I should be in a home with no other pets. My new prospective owner should understand that I will require vet trips every two months and $35 worth of medication every month. My life expectancy is expected to be short. Please do not request to adopt me unless you are financially able to handle my medical bills and vet trips. If you would like to know more about me, you can contact my foster mom at My adoption fee is $75.00. Please check the website on how you can help donate money to Yorkie Friends Rescue.

YFR Needs Help

His blood work results showed abnormal liver and renal function and his ultrasound test showed multiple stones in his bladder ,kidneys and he also has multiple liver shunts. He needs to have an emergency surgery to remove the bladder stones now and then he will have his liver shunt surgery at the University of Florida where they are familiar with this type of surgery. It is a very dangerous surgery for this little boy.It is more likely that Jersey will need more surgeries in the future and probably medication for the rest of his life. We will do whatever is necessary to keep him comfortable. Any donations toward his surgeries and medications are greatly appreciated.
Please send any donations to:
Yorkie Friends Rescue Corporation
c/o Nancy Doherty, Treasurer
3060 N. Atlantic Ave. #204
Cocoa Beach, FL 32931
Thank you so much for helping us save a life!
