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 100 yorkies in the past several years. Your donations help us help them.

Programs: Florida yorkie rescue is dedicated to the rescue rehabilitation and re-homing of yorkies morkies and malteses we are a group of volunteers working with rescued dogs in our

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!

Florida Yorkie Rescue is wonderful. Kit, her husband Jerry and all of the volunteers put their hearts and souls into saving the precious little angels that have been abandoned or surrendered by people that want a better life for their babies. No shelter. Every baby is cared for in a volunteer's home. They care for the physical and emotional injuries and provide endless love to every fur baby that comes their way.

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.

I volunteer with this Rescue. I transport for them. They are the most loving and caring group of Ladies...all with the best interest of the little-rescued babies...they come in deplorable condition and Kit goes to work to rehabilitate them to as normal as they will ever be. I am proud to be associated with such a group of loving people.

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 works 24/7 to rescue, place and heal Gods precious yorkies. Our Noelle was adopted after losing our 9 year old yorkie. We were so broken in heart. As a long time follower of FYR we applied thinking it might be a while before placement. FYR filled are hearts protecting Noelle till she could be our furever Shorkie. We loved the process, care, attitude and it truly is a family. Thank you FYR.

The 2 adorable fur babies in the photo are Patchwork and Widget, both adopted through Florida Yorkie Rescue. FYR is a great organization staffed by dedicated and caring volunteers whose only goal is to do the best they can do for the dogs entrusted to the Rescue. I have complete trust and confidence in FYR - that's why I adopted through them twice!

I have adopted 2 Yorkies through FYR. Kit and her crew of volunteers are supremely dedicated to helping Yorkies, Malteses, and crosses of these breeds, who have been put into situations where they need new homes and, many times, medical attention. Kit's compassion towards owners who have found themselves in a position where they can no longer properly care for their pets is extraordinary. This group goes above and beyond to do the right thing for these dogs who are in need. I was so impressed with the group I became a transport volunteer.

I adopted a 14 year old Yorkie from Florida Yorkie rescue. Her name is prissy and she is blind in one eye and had a badly broken leg that had never been addressed by her previous owners. Florida Yorkie rescued her and I was lucky enough to get her and give her a safe loving home where she can live out the rest of her years spoiled rotten. Kit and her staff are wonderful and are so amazing with these precious babies

While I support many rescues, Florida Yorkie Rescue receives not only my largest yearly contributions and support, they also receive my greatest respect for a genuine concern for the welfare of their rescues. I have never known this organization or Kit to do anything that wasn't in the best interest of those paw kids in their care even when it meant a financial cost or loss to their organization. This organization and all involved in saving these paw kids in need CARE.

Being partial to yorkies it's great to know there is a breed specific rescue saving lives in our area. They do great work with the seniors along with the pups. Keep up the great work FYR.

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 adopted my girl from Florida Yorkie and they were amazing. I needed to provide references and they would not allow me to adopt until a house visit was done. Their main goal is to place the pup with a responsible and caring individual.
