Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Dogs

Mission: The mission of Florida Yorkie Rescue is to rescue Yorkies and Yorkie mixes regardless of age or additional handicaps that may be associated with aging or birth defects. We never discriminate on the basis of health, age or breed. We pledge to promote responsible pet ownership through humane education and to provide shelter and care to our foster dogs until a loving, responsible home can be found. To evaluate each dog and potential home with the goal of matching our dogs to the best possible home. We also provide life-long, quality sanctuary for yorkies that may be too old or ill for adoption. This organization is made up entirely of people who volunteer their time and money to foster and place these little dogs in caring, loving homes. Almost all the dogs that come into Florida Yorkie Rescue need rehabilitation and training and we seek out medical care or alternative methods if traditional treatments do not work. All dogs that come into Florida Yorkie Rescue will be neutered or spayed and vaccinated.

Results: We have rescued, rehabilitated and adopted out over 500 yorkies in the State of Florida. Your donations help us help them.

THE BEST RESCUE EVER! I have adopted three dogs from Florida Yorkie Rescue. Each dog arrived totally vetted and completely healthy. I even adopted a Senior at the age of 12 who is doing beautifully right now. This is a fabulous and caring Rescue who stands behind their dogs. They are one of the few Rescues I have ever heard of who will take their yorkies back if a family wants to return it for whatever reason, even ten years later. This speaks volumes for the kind of Rescue this group is!

I love the dedication Kit and all her team provide for rescuing these pups. I have seen them take on pups knowing it was going to be a long and expensive ordeal to give the pups a chance for a good life. Pups no one else would touch are given a chance by Florida Yorkie Rescue. I will also like to add the diligence in matching the right pup to the right owner is amazing. These pups have been through enough and this is taken into consideration before placing them with someone who would put the pups through more trauma. God Bless them

Kit and the entire Florida Yorkie Rescue team are nothing short of angels. We got our baby Clementine from FYR in 2018. It's the best decision we ever made. I love how diligent and thorough FYR is when checking out potential parents. These precious babies have been through enough and Kit makes sure they go to a proper FURever home! One of my favorite charities ever!

I am so tired of so-called non profits that make their directors or CEOs rich. Florida Yorkie Rescue does not fit that description at all. I have been a supporter and followed them for several years now. For them, it is all about the dogs who need help. I trust them and believe in the mission 100%. I can't express how strongly I believe this. I will continue to be a strong supporter of this non profit organization.

This is a true not for profit rescue. They always put the care and well being of the Yorkies first and foremost. I am astonished at the lengths they go to to save a little dog. No high paid directors here. It is pure love for the animals. I wish I had more words to express my respect for the group. Every person involved has one goal in mind and only one goal...to save a dog who needs to be rescued from, at times, deplorable conditions. I say God Bless them.

I lost my Bichon at age 14 and was devastated... until I saw the face of the most precious Morkie looking back at me. I filled out the application and was impressed at the quick response and all the effort that went into making sure I'd be a good fit. My girl was given back to FYR due to anxiety and potty training. Well, it's been almost 2 years and my Kelcie tells me when it's time for outside! I can't thank Kit and FYR enough for being a voice for the furbabies that need us.

I have adopted 3 yorkies from Florida Yorkie Rescue over the past 4 years and I have never encountered a more kind and caring organization in my life. The director goes above and beyond to save absolutely every little fur baby that is directed her way. If there is even a slight chance of saving that fur babies life, FYR will do it, no matter the time, the energy or the cost. I know this first hand because my latest little rescue was going to be euthanized had it not been for the founder of FYR. Thank you FYR for all you do by helping, healing and find these beautiful fur babies “forever homes”.

I have adopted 3 Yorkies from FYR and their big heart doesn't stop there. Taking in dogs, restoring their health and finding forever homes is just the beginning. There has been many times I had questions or concerns regarding one of my rescued pups and Kit Roche, President/Founder of FYR, made time to offer advice and guidance. I am now a proud volunteer with FYR. Being part of the Transport Team is a rewarding experience. The volunteers are truly a team, coordinating picking up a dog, and transporting him/her from point A to point B. Once a forever home is carefully chosen, we all celebrate the joy of another dog becoming a happy and loved member of a new family.

Florida Yorkie Rescue (FYR) is without a doubt the finest nonprofit animal rescue, hands down. I have had the privilege of adopting 2 Yorkies in October of 2012, Scarlett & Savannah. FYR's on-line application is thorough and detailed to assist FYR in making a sound decision regarding placing the ideal dog in the perfect home. FYR checks references, their home visit is conducted by a volunteer to ensure that the adopted dog will be living in a safe environment. All these points were important to me because FYR cares about placement. The dogs are well cared for while FYR has possession. They are fully vaccinated, teeth cleaned, etc. The small fee required to rescue helps to cover the expense of medical attention and miscellaneous fees while the pet was at FYR. I also clearly remember Kit explaining the personality of the first 2 dogs I adopted, they were and still are exactly as she said. Kit devotes her time to the care and getting to know all the dogs taken into FYR. Soon after I wanted to be part of FYR and became a volunteer. Once again, March 2014, I adopted a senior Yorkie, Willow, Yorkies are like potato chips, you can't have just one and you will never need to go any further than FYR to add love and happiness to your home. Everyone, the board members, the volunteers, the veterinarians FYR uses are fully dedicated to the well being of these dogs.
I am happy to donate to this worthy rescue, 100% of donations are used to care for the pets, Please donate and/or adopt, the pet you bring home will be well groomed, precious and ready to be loved. Check out their Website...get ready to fall in love! (See Scarlett, Savannah and Willow)

I recently adopted two dogs from Florida Yorkie Rescue. I have never met a more caring group of volunteers. They truly want the dogs to find a perfectly matched forever home. They take the time to meet with each family to make sure the surroundings are safe and loving before letting the dogs go to their new homes. The medical attention they give their dogs is amazing Most of all, it is an organization run by volunteers so I know my donation will end up being put to good use to help the animals not to big salaries.

Sometimes this means everyone who applies is not approved. Their team travels near and far to help these precious little souls!

This is a wonderful organization. They take in abused and neglected little Yorkies and other small dogs. They rehabilitate them both physically and mentally... they then find wonderful homes for them, screening applications carefully for that perfect new forever family and home....I have been a transporter for them in the past. They are a very special and loving Rescue group, going that extra mile for these unfortunate dogs. I can’t say enough good things about them!

After losing our 12.5 year old Yorkie to renal & heart failure,after a few months, we contacted Florida Yorkie Rescue to adopt a Yorkie. The application was easy. A home visit was made to insure there was a safe environment, our vet was contacted to insure good health care, if needed. We were offered the chance to adopt a healthy 2 year old little girl, Scarlet Jane. It has been almost 2 years since that happened. Since then, I have had the opportunity to join their volunteer group & felt much self satisfaction with fostering and transporting surrendered yorkies. This organization is just wonderful. They take in any Yorkie, Maltese, mix that has a need & gets the medical help that they need to become adopted. They survive strictly on donations. The first photo is of our lost baby, Sarah. The 2nd is of our sweet Scarlet Jane.

Florida Yorkie Rescue is one of the most caring and concerned rescues out there. No fur baby is turned away (if possible) and they go to great lengths to match family to yorkie. They have rescued from some of the most horrible conditions, care for and heal these pups then place them in the best fit home. I love their attitude and conviction to rescuing Yorkies.

We have adopted two babies from FYR. Dasher has been with us almost 7 years and Baxter just over a year. Couldn't ask for better support from a rescue. Baxter needed surgery before they would place him and gave us the choice to wait for a 2nd surgery to be done (or have done after we adopted) Their focus is foremost about the yorkies they receive and finding the perfect forever home. If I could and lived closer would be volunteering for them!

The Yorkie Animal Rescue is one of the finest rescues I know. The amount of care and dedication they provide for dogs of all ages is remarkable. I own a dog from this agency and she was a healthy happy little 4 year old. Today she is 10 and the love of my life. I also rescue a male 5 month old from another rescue. He was sick from the day I got him and continues to have health problems at 10 years old also. The Yorkie Animal Rescue is by far one of the best around.

However, there is no link or way to report this on your website that I can find. Please let me know how I can report this and save this poor sweet dear whose mate has ben killed in an accident where the owners let it run free and it was dragged by a car and the owner refused to pay for vetrinary car to save its life.

This has been an exceptional experience for us. We waited until the time was right to adopt a Yorkie, and when we had the right environment we went straight to FYR. We became aware of FYR over a year ago, and were happy to donate to specific foster pets until it was our turn to take once of these special pups into our home.
Diane was thorough in vetting us, which is what you want when a dog is going to be placed in a home: she made sure we had a safe and secure environment, adequate resources, the ability to address emergencies, an understanding of what it means to adopt a dog, and most of all, a loving family. We are grateful there are people like Diane who make sure animals are placed correctly, and we strived to be the kind of family that meets FYR's expectations. Thank you for setting a high bar, and for caring so much about the doggies with whom you are entrusted.

This is truly a rescue group. Kit and her volunteers spare no expense, spend endless hours of love and care towards all their dogs. I have seen dogs taken in that honestly looked like they wouldn't make it through another day because of the condition they are in. I know of one person who sleeps on the floor beside a new dog to make sure he/she feels loved and is their to comfort them during the night. There are hundreds and hundreds of success stories and many happy placements with the perfect family for that dog. It is not easy to get a dog from Florida Yorkie Rescue, because they want to ensure the dog never has to suffer again with the treatment and neglect it had received.

Florida Yorkie Rescue is wonderful.

If there is a dog that their rescue can take in, due to size and such, they are all over it. Coordinating a pick-up, transport, health evaluation...this team is all over it with amazing dedication and thoroughness. I have been fortunate to be able to assist pick up recently a young homeless pooch, and travel 2 hours to another volunteer, who traveled another distance. This is just the beginning. This team helps pups that have been injured, health issues, birth defects, neglect problems, and sadly abuse and hoarding situations. Florida Yorkie Rescue is a well organized, fully dedicated, loving rescue.

Three years ago we lost our beloved little pet to collapsed trachea. She was the apple of our eyes, my grief was unbearable, our family suggested applying for a rescue immediately considering it may take months to be selected for a match. Via internet, Florida Yorkie Rescue appeared, we completed application and within 2 weeks , contact to adopt beloved Noelle came to fruition thou many may judge how little time had past between the pain vs joy, the love and guidance we received was a gift and healing began. Our Noelle needed love and lost her humans we grieved together. We thank FYR everyday and Momma Kit made it possible!! FYR is committed to excellence, the love and care all the dogs receive is miraculous.

Florida Yorkie Rescue is the most loving and professional rescue organization i have ever had the pleasure to work with. Anyone who is interested in adopting a Yorkie should definitely contact this group. They have the highest standards and are very careful when placing the babies only because they want the BEST experience for both, the puppy and their forever family. And, after all is said and done, isn't that what the pups and their perspective families deserve? If I could give FYR a billion stars, I would. They are simply the BEST!

I have loved this rescue for many years! I run a rescue transport out of Alabama, 3 years ago an awful yorkie puppy mill was discovered, they were just keeping them in cages outside and in the winter many would die and just trown into a barn. We called FL Yorkie Rescue who stepped right and took several who had never been vetted, they were all taken wonderful care of and placed in loving homes. Just last week I volunteered to pull one for them out of a kill shelter in the FL Panhandle. This little 7 lb morkie was likely used by a backyard breeder and dumped due to a huge tumor needing removed. She was transported and had surgery and will be fine and ready for her furever home soon. I cannot say enough about ehat a wonderful job this rescue does. So many people think yorkie resues must be rooling in donations but that is not true. So many have medical issues and need gelp when they get there but the right treatment, they live happy lives. Please help Florida Yorkie Rescue!

Thank you Gale for your kind words of support and for making us aware of these precious babies that we were fortunate enough to help rescue from horrendous condition in Alabama. All but one has been adopted and are now making their transition into a normal routine. Oh what they must think now.... being shown unconditional love by their new owners, having food to eat, clean bedding to sleep in... and living indoors away from the harsh cold elements they suffered from for so long. God bless YOU for the work you do!

I have been following Florida Yorkie Rescue since 2009. The dedication that Kit and her volunteers have is unparalleled. The pups rescued are so fortunate to be in their care and they are placed in loving homes. Any dog that is not adoptable due to special needs is loved and nurtured by Kit and her husband Jerry until they finally find a home or need to leave this world. Yes, rescue is not all fun and roses. There is a lot of heartbreaking moments that these wonderful people must endure. But, they push on. It is my pleasure to donate whenever I can.

I have been following FYR for more than 7 years now. I am always encouraged and amazed at the dedication and love reflected in everything they do for so many precious babies. I refer everyone who is interested in adopting a small baby to FYR. Simply put, they are just angels on earth. ❤

The most dedicated and caring organization I know. I adopted several of their seniors and kit De Roch continued to follow up on how they are doing. They are very selective of the adopters for the well being of each and every dog. This is an associate organization.

The Florida Yorkie Rescue is a fabulous organization in every way and Kit is the real deal. She works around the clock to care for these beautiful dogs and never gives up on them until they are adopted by a fully vetted family. Even then, she stays in touch. I have personally adopted two dogs from FYR and continue to be blown away by Kit and her team. I truly respect them and recommend Florida Yorkie Rescue to everyone.

I am soooo grateful to the Florida Yorkie Rescue for the adoption of m little Angel. She is a true cutie full of energy and she's great company to my other Yorkie Harley. I appreciate the time and effort Linda and Diane took in making the adoption process possible. I will always feel a special place in my heart for this outstanding organization. Again, I thank you all so much!

Wonderful rescue. Kit and her staff go beyond and above to give these yorkies the very best care and love. They make sure the adoptive parents know all about the yorkie they adopt and will address any concerns the new prospective family might have. One could not fine a better rescue.

I rescued my Bella two years ago from Florida Yorkie Rescue and could not say enough about how wonderful Kit the owner is and also the people who work with her. Her main goal is for all her rescued dogs go to good homes where they will be cared for and loved. And if for some reason it doesn't turn out to be a good match, she wants the dogs back with her. She loves all her rescues and wants the best for everyone. There should be more organizations like Florida Yorkie Rescue and more people who care like Kit. Kudos to her and all her good work.

Thank you so much Phyllis for the kind comments and for taking the time to post them here. Bella looks so beautiful... a far cry from living outdoors in a wire crate among so many in Alabama at a Puppy Mill Farm. It brings tears to my eyes every time I think of her there and how my heart bursts with joy when I see how much she is loved and spoiled now.

I have had the privlege to work as a volunteer for this wonderful organization. I can honestly tell everyone that the time, care, concern, medical care, love, prayers and sleepless nights that the entire organization gives to these abandoned and neglected pups
is something that I have never experienced. These pups are given a second chance at life because of the selfishness of all those involved. S
A big thanks to ALL involved!

I am not from Florida so unable to adopt one of FYR furkids...the transparency this organization is run with lets me know anything ever donated goes directly to the furkids. This rescue goes to incredible lengths in the rescue of some of these furkids... When she receives them you had to wonder how have they made it this long. Under her care or her carefully screened foster families they bloom into the incredible little furkid they were always supposed to be. They care for these furkids as if their own human children. I am so very glad to beable to donate and watch from afar the rescue of all these tiny little furkids with the soul of a lion but the size of a pip squeak. FYR is the best....

The love and care shown by this organization has moved me to tears many times. This is one of the few rescues that I have donated to. The reason, I have seen dogs that looked as if they were about to die brought back to health by the care from this group. I am so impressed by all the work they do and the lives they save on a daily basis!

I have followed the work of the amazing Florida Yorkie Rescue for 3 years now.

Outstanding work they do with discarded, abandoned and abused Yorkies.

If I were to add another Yorkie to my pack, Florida Yorkie Rescue would be my first stop.

They are the best!

This is a wonderful organization that goes above and far beyond normal expectations. I adopted one of their rescues almost 5 years ago and their screening process is far above any I have ever seen or heard of. They go out of their way to make sure their babies go to the very best home. FYR is the very best!!

Florida Yorkie Rescue is, by far, an outstanding rescue organization. They incorporate the total care, including all medical needs, coupled with true Love for all the dogs they rescue to a level above and beyond most rescues. I have been been following them for several years now and I have witnessed such wonderful nurturing, caring and LOVE. Everyone affiliated with FYR is genuine. I would trust each one of them 100 percent with my own fur babies. This site only allows 5 stars, they deserve many many more. Fabulous organization.

Over the years I have adopted three dogs from Florida Yorkie Rescue. All three came in to the rescue with horrible backstories and many medical issues. All received tender loving care and had their medical issues resolved or brought under control before they were made available for adoption. As an adopter, I was fully investigated, my references were checked, a home visit was done and my vet called to make sure I was a good Pet Parent. There was a meet and greet with my dogs to make sure everyone got along. Florida Yorkie Rescue ALWAYS has the dog's best interests at heart. I could not ask for a more humane group than Florida Yorkie Rescue.

My Granddaughter and I have volunteered to transport for FYR over the past 2 years-Was actually corresponding and following them a lot longer when I could not help. This Rescue loves and cares for each and every pup that passes their way. They work constantly to rescue the sick and neglected pups - I have seen them post desperately for help to pick one up -then straight to their vet and it gets all the care the pup needs and all the love it can handle until they find them their perfect forever family! They cry over the ones that can't save and they don't give up trying. Never let one bad review wipe away all the good this group has done. Thumbs up a million and one times to this group of caring people.
