YAPS is proud to announce this year’s Volunteer of the Year. Each year, this honor is awarded to an outstanding volunteer for their selfless commitment, dedication, and contribution to the homeless pets at YAPS. 


This year’s recipient is Terry Bryk. Terry has been a volunteer with YAPS since 2014. She started off by joining the Fundraising Committee and has taken on the role of being a coordinator for all major fundraising events.


Have you ever attended a YAPS fundraiser and won a raffle basket? If so, it is Terry Bryk that put together that beautiful basket. Terry creates wonderful raffle baskets year round for all YAPS events. She helps to acquire business sponsors for the events and gathers items donated by local businesses. Terry donates all the supplies needed to make the baskets look great. Her creative flair and dedication helps bring in much needed funds to care for the orphan pets at YAPS.


Terry’s dedication to YAPS has helped countless dogs and cats find a forever home with her fundraising efforts. Terry cares about the pets, but she also cares about the people that work and volunteer at YAPS.
