My husband and I adopted my beautiful Annie Rose 5 years ago from Florida Yorkie Rescue and since then we have been following and attending their fund raising events. There is no words that can honestly describe the good that this rescue does for these fur babies! Momma Kit is one in a million; there is never a fur baby left behind! She is the epitome of compassion and love and her husband is just as caring and loving to these babies in need! LOVE FLORIDA YORKIE RESCUE!
Wonderful people working to place Yorkies in Loving homes
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!
I have followed and contributed to FYR for many years now. They are the kindest most loving Yorkie rescue I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with. With FYR, the Pups come first. Always the best in get care the best in nurturing and the friendliest people you would ever want to meet. I just love FYR.
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!!
I've adopted 4 Yorkies from Florida Yorkie Rescue. .
I've been in animal rescue for over 40 years and no animal rescue group can top this group in professionalism and integrity.
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.
We are so grateful to those who support all of us who work so hard here at Florida Yorkie Rescue 24/7. Thank you kindly.
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.
Thank you so Lisa for your kindness and your support. We so appreciate you being part of out team. God bless you.
I have worked/volunteered with this organization for 8 years. I did my homework before hooking my wagon to this group. I was pleased with everything I found out about them. They ave now become my second family. A great group of lovely ladies and gents... all with the same common goal of saving the lives of yorkies young and old.
Thank you so for your very kind words and support over the years! We are so grateful for your tireless efforts on our behalf.
I have been a Transporter for Florida Yorkie Rescue for almost a year. I have never met more loving and caring people than in this group. They truly care about the dogs they rescue and would never adopt out a sick dog. God bless them.
Thank you. Yes, it is true. Florida Yorkie Rescue has NEVER adopted a sick dog to anyone. All of out dogs are completed vetted and tested for all parasites before finding new homes, including fecal and heartworm exams. We also follow up on all adoptions for several months to make sure all is going well and that our yorkies are making an easy transition. If there are ever any problems we are always here to help. Anyone who states otherwise is clearly mistaken or has our Rescue mixed up with someone else.
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!
Thank you so much for your kind comments. We appreciate them as always.
One of the stellar, professional, loving and caring rescue group ever. Their work is dauntless and they help so many fur children get well and adopted.
Thank you for your kind comments and five star rating. We appreciate your support.
i would rate this zero if that was an option. The staff at Florida yorkie rescue are very rude.
They adopted a 3year old yorkie to me that had heartworms and died 6months after i adopted him. they did not even tell me that he was ill. I contacted the rescue about the whole situation and they called me trash and a liar, and a few other names that are so horrible i will not repeat. I have been heart broken every since i lost my beloved yorkie named Monty who i adopted from Florida yorkie rescue. PLEASE DO NOT ADOPT FROM FLORIDA YORKIE RESCUE.
Florida Yorkie Rescue is the best! The volunteers are professional, knowledgeable and dedicated rescuers. I have seen miracle turn arounds and so much love for those that have endured so much and those that crossed over the Rainbow bridge. They deserve support so they can continue their work.
Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments.
Florida Yorkie Rescue is a wonderful organization. Kit takes in these sweet, adorable dogs that have been abused, neglected, and left to die. She gives them the care they need and nurses them back to health. She is truly an angel. I am and have been a donor for many years now. God Bless You Yorkie Rescue.
Thank you so much Tracey for your kind comments and for your support throughout the year on our behalf.
Florida Yorkie Rescue saved our dog who rescued us. Thank you for bringing Lila into our life.
Thank you so kindly for your comments and for giving little Lila the best new left ever!
I Love Yorkies and I just Love Florida Yorkie rescue...They do a wonderful Job with all of the rescues... Keep it up....
Florida Yorkie Rescue is a wonderful organization. They are tireless in the care of their rescues and see that they get the best care possible. They are relentless in rescuing the fur babies that are in the most horrid situation and they go to any length to do so once they become aware of a bad situation. I have followed them and other rescues across the nation, and in my opinion none comes close to the love and compassion that they show their rescues.
Thank you so much for your very thoughtful and kind comments on our behalf.
This is a rescue with integrity and heart. When a dog finds itself at FYR it has hit the jackpot, they go way beyond what one would expect from a non profit. I make it a point to help support them whenever I can. They far exceed expectations.
How very sweet of you Kathleen to give us a five star rating and for your very kind words. We certainly appreciate your thoughtfulness.
I found Florida Yorkie Rescue online and I applied to become a foster. Their qualifying process was extensive as it should be, including a home check. Once I fostered I soon became a potential adopter. The application process was easy for me since I was already the foster but the emphasis was on what was best for the dog. These people are in the business of finding the best home for the dog. Excellent experience.
Thank you Grace. We so appreciate your participation with our group and for adopting your little fur-boy.
This is a group of selfless individuals dedicated to helping Yorkies and other small dogs. A wonderful organization!
I adopted my Molly almost 2 years ago from FYR and would go there again in a minute, if something happened to Molly. Kit and her husband give the fur-babies the love and care they need after being surrendered. And for those who have been abused and mistreated, Kit will take them without a second thought and give them all the love, medical care or whatever else they need. She also makes certain that the fur-babies end up in the right homes and is VERY particular before she does let one be adopted. I have also met the volunteers for FYR and they are exceptional as well. Overall, FYR in my opinion has a AAA rating as it goes above and beyond for all the fur-babies who get the benefit of being rescued by FYR.
Thank you Karen. we so appreciate your support and mind words as well as giving Molly the best life ever!
This is a great organization, awsome people helping !
This is a wonderful organization. Not only do they they take in animals in need but they try to help people who are having issues with with their animals so that they may keep their beloved family member or find a suitable place for them. Years ago, we bought a puppy that began displaying increasing aggressive behavior after turning 2 years old. FYR provided us with resources - behavior classes, veterinarians, therapists specializing in aggression issues, etc. Through their help, we were able to find a solution. Most recently, I've seen that they took in a dog that had such minimal chance for survival. Through perseverance, faith, support, patience, and love the dog, Sam, had made incredible strides. This was a dog that many would have found repulsive and hopeless. However, FYR found the beauty and potential in Sammy and he had made wonderful strides. God bless FYR.
Thank you so much for your kind words as well as for mentioning Sam's journey. Yes, he was a poodle and we are a Yorkie Rescue group but when we were called and asked to help, we did not hesitate. We have included a video of him through this site under our logo... please log on and watch Sam's story.
I have been supporting Florida Yorkie Rescue, Inc for years and do so because they put the dogs first. If it hurts your feelings, they are sorry, but the dog's welfare always is priority. I wish more rescues were like this. I see too many dogs adopted out just to have turnover and then returned or homeless again. How does this help a dog? Clearly it doesn't. At Florida Yorkie Rescue, In, they make sure the dog is going to a forever home.
Thank you so much. We very much appreciate all of your support and prayers over the years! You are an angel.
An amazing group of volunteers that devote their lives to the fur babies they rescue. I truly do not know where the founder of this organization finds the time and energy she devotes to every little one they take in. We were fortunate enough to be introduced to this group when we were looking to adopt. We now have a precious 6 year old little Yorkie girl and she is already a member of our family and loved very much. We were so lucky to find this group and to have had the honor and privilege to become a forever home for our little gal. Absolutely the BEST rescue group around.
Thank you so much Dee for taking the time to give us such a beautiful tribute. We work very hard here and get very little sleep but at the end of the day when we can make another little dog's dreams come true... matching them up with such a sweet couple such as you both... then we know we have made another successful connection and nothing makes our day more than that! We love happy ending!
I had to surrender a puppy because I have an aggressive dog here and she kept me informed and found him a forever home and I am so grateful they are the best rescue I've ever seen or heard of I would only use them and I highly recommend them I love the way they do everything and care so much about all the dogs they get too bad at every rescue group could be exactly the same and now that she is taking Sammy in and he's not even a Yorky is so awesome they are angel sent from heaven thank you for all your work
Thank you so much for taking the time to make a comment and give us such a glowing review. We understand that surrendering a dog can sometimes be an emotional experience filled with doubts if the right thing was done. We try especially hard to make this difficult experience as easy for the dog and their owners as possible. God bless you for your self-less act.
They do wonderful work saving these precious little bundles of love who have been neglected, abused and abandoned. They also help other small breeds. A very dedicated, caring organization.
We adopted the most wonderful little yorkie 3 months ago from Florida Yorkie Rescue. Since then, I have been praising them to everyone I meet. I have followed their activities, their rescues, their stories, for more than a year. What a beautiful group of people. They give their time, their love, their hard work, their assets, to reach out and bless so many lovely and desperate dogs. I have rarely felt so moved as I have been by the loving care they show to these little ones. Our new family member, Mimi, has brought more joy and blessings into our lives than we could have dreamed possible. The dogs always come first. Their screening process, to match the right dog to the right persons, is perfectly accomplished. They keep in touch, to ensure that all is well. They accept the abused, neglected, terrorized, and mistreated, and start the rehabilitation process to change the fear into confidence, trust, and joy. I feel honored to have my life touched by their dedication. I am a better person by witnessing their loving good works. I will always be grateful for the example of what good can be done, by working with one's heart.
Great organizer!! So far I have only donated to help with surgerys. Someday soon I want to get a Yorkie from them as a new sister for my 2 rescues I have now. I love FYR.
It doesn't get better than this! 5 stars all the way!
One of the best organizations I have ever dealt with. I have never known better people who always go over and above to save and make the lives of the animals they care for better.
It is comforting to know this organization exist for the support and care of this amazing breed of small dogs. So many mistreated and abused fur babies are now alive and thriving only because of the wonderful care and support of FYR. Enough can not be said to thank these directors and volunteers for their countless hours to benefit these precious animals.
I only volunteer for this wonderful Rescue Group. These are a group of the most amazing people...I have never worked with such a lovely bunch of people. What they do for the little rescue'd babies is beyond belief.
These dogs are completely take care of medically and emotionally.
They find homes for them and are very picky about who is allowed to adopt their rescued pups....everyone is screened and homes are inspected to be sure the baby is going to a great furever home.
This is a wonderful group doing amazing things.
Thank you so much Susie for your support and all the volunteer work you do on our behalf. We are so grateful.
The volunteers in this organization are incredible. They amaze me with their dedication and passion.
If their was a rating of 20 stars they would get it.
Thank you Rhonda for your very kind words.
There aren't enough accolades for this wonderful Rescue. I am so very proud to be a member of their transport team. The Board of Directors and Kit are true humanitarians. The newest endeavor, Yorkie House; will revolutionize Senior Pet Care.
Thanks you Judy. Your participation in our Transport Team has been so appreciated. FYR would not be the same without you.
There are no words to describe this organization! They are so incredible, loving and a true caring group of ANGELS!
Thank you Denise for your kind words of support.
I have been following the Florida Yorkie Rescue for some time now and they have done such wonderful works with these 4 legged babies. They are always going to rescue and don't know what shape the babies are in but they pick them up and get them treated. Take care of them until they get them in a good place to be adopted. You can just tell how much love they pour into the little babies that have been abused and neglected. They deserve all the help they can get and if there were more than 5 stars I would give them that.
God Bless them for all their hard work and determination to help everyone of the dogs they can!
Thank you so much for your kind words of support. We appreciate it more than words can say.
I admire the work that FYR does. They have sacrificed much in order to save as many dogs as they can. They have had some really badly abused and neglected dogs that have been restored to health and found loving homes for! They go the extra mile to make dogs lives better!
Thank you Tracy for taking the time out of your day to give us such a nice review. We appreciate all of our Facebook Fans and without your support and prayers we would not be able to do what we do!
I am a Yorkie owner and fell in love with this Organization over three years ago. FYR is an awesome group of volunteers that try to never turn down a Yorkie or Maltese in need of rescue. I personally recommended this group to a co-worker that had friends that needed to rehome their Yorkie. They quickly assisted, vet checked and rehomed this baby within a very short time. Five Star Charity. If I could give more stars, I would.
Wow Joanne... thank you so much for your vote on confidence in us. Yes, we try to do the very best we can but we could never do what we do without the support and prayers that our fans provide.
Wow, thank you Joanne for your lovely comments. But we could not do what we do without our loyal supporters. Thank you!
You simply do not find people with bigger hearts and more compassion. Five stars are really not enough-they should get at 10!!!
Thank you Debbie. We do appreciate your kind words and five star rating.
I follow this group and it's tireless efforts to save and re-home neglected, abused, ill and homeless small dogs. Their dedication and passion is unparalleled !
Thank you Shelby Sue for commenting about our organization with such positive words. We do appreciate it and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
This is a wonderful, caring organization that works tirelessly for the animals it saves. All funds donated here are for the good of the animals. 24/7.
Thanks Nancy... we appreciate your kind words and support.
Adopted a senior yorkie, he is a joy. This organization left no rock unturned checking me out before they let me adopt. Great rescue! Will definitely adopt a senior again from them.
Thank you Diana. Thank you for opening up your heart and home to a senior! As we all know, they makes the BEST pets.
I have seen them do marvelous things with rescues, it is one of my very favs to donate to. They do a fantastic job
Thank you so much Jan, for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. We so appreciate your support.
My wife and I have adopted two Yorkies from Florida Yorkie Rescue. We just can't say enough good things about this organization....They really do "care" for all Yorkies regardless of age or circumstances be it health issues or abuse. In short they are VERY caring people. In fact, we were so impressed with this organization we volunteer our time as transporters to get the Yorkies to Palm City Florida...The latest one we adopted is a senior and we were part of transporting her to Florida Yorkie Rescue. Both my wife and I were so taken with her we decided to submit an application to adopt her When Florida Yorkie received her she had major health issues and FYR took her immediately to the vet hospital. She received excellent care. Once she was cleared by their veterinarian we were approved and adopted her. Those who read this posting..So many seniors don't have this luxury of care. Far too many "potential" adopters would rather have a very young Yorkie. She may only have a few years left but our mission is to provide the love and care she has never had the chance to experience. In short, don't overlook a senior when thinking of adopting a dog regardless of the breed...All they want to do is love you back three fold.....We thank Florida Yorkie Rescue for providing us the opportunity to adopt her. One big factor to consider when donating to a charity...How much of your dollar actually goes to the charity and how much goes to "administrative fees.".....Consider that when you receive a piece of mail to donate to XYZ charity....By donating to FYR, you can rest assure 99.9% is going to the care and welfare of the animal...Are they selective who they let adopt a dog from them?? Yes they are and for good reason...their mission is to find a "Forever Home" for them....Very, impressive organization....
Thank you so much for your words of support and for all the hours you have spent volunteering with Florida Yorkie Rescue. We were so pleased when you chose to adopt your little Senior just a few weeks ago. We love you both!
Im my personal opinion, you guys are doing a fantastic job. Very dedicated to all the furbabies that need help and love. You are all the best. Keep up the good work!
Thank you so much for your very kind words and your support. We appreciate it so much!
Thank you so much for your very kind words and your support. We appreciate it so much!
Florida Yorkie Rescue does amazing work. Kit and her volunteer staff are truly angels on earth. It's great that she always tells the story of each rescue and posts pictures (before and after); she gives you all the details of what is going on with their life, how they were brought to FYR, their medical needs and care and the costs and then where the rescue goes for their forever home and even posts pictures of the adopted family. I have donated and will again - they perform miracles with the donations and volunteers they have. These dogs are so lucky to be at FYR. If only all rescues operated the same way what a great world it would be. God bless FYR, Kit and her staff of angels. Please keep up the good work and thank you!!!
Thank you so much for your lovely words of love and encouragement Kelly. We love you!
I have seen small dogs in such bad shape come into Florida Yorkie Rescue. Somehow they manage to find the dogs in the mess of hair and who knows what they have on them. They care for their medical needs, their spay or neuter, whatever the dog needs. I know some of the ones they have rehabilitated would have been put down by others. FYR gets these dogs who have known abuse and neglect, fix whatever is needed and find them appropriate homes. Because most of the dogs are 5 pounds or less, they do a home study to make sure the dog will be safe. I wish I could do what they do. There are many sad things, but to take something some human basically threw away and fix them up and find them homes is, I am sure, a heartwarming thing.
Thank you Marilyn for your feedback. We appreciate it so very much!
There are not enough complimentary words to describe this wonderful organization. I have worked closely with Kit and there is no human being who cares more, does more or sacrifices more than this woman does for her cause. She works tirelessly to rescue as many dogs as she and the organization can handle, and then goes beyond that when she hears of one in need. She has developed a strong organization with wonderful, caring, giving volunteers who never cease to amaze me with their willingness to help and their donations of time, money and products. I am humbled to be associated with such a terrific group of people.
Thank you Deanie for all your kind words and for being such a valued volunteer. We love you!
I am proud to help this group in any way I can. This is a group of people that can and do make it happen. Kits strong leadership is what makes it all happen, her dedication to these fur baby's is end less.
Thank you Cyndi for being part of our valued Transport Team. You help us make a difference!
Kit works very hard and take the cases where the Yorkie is in dire need of medical attention. she has brought this organization very far. she a real fighter and go getting. always putting the needs of the little ones first . keep up the good work KIT!!!!!!! well done!!!!!!!
I am a foster mom for FL Yorkie Rescue. I have never seen a more caring and wonderful team of volunteers. Kit goes so far beyond what is expected that she really should be nominated for sainthood!! She really has dedicated her whole life to this organization. Everyone works together to do whatever is best for t he little rescues. It is a great team.
Thanks so much Debra Jo, for all that you have done for Florida Yorkie Rescue! We love you!
This group along with Kit and all of the volunteers are doing an awesome job they have rescued and saved so many lives that otherwise would not have survived.. they go far beyond to take care of these little ones and never complain and have given up their personal lives to do this.. please continue the work cause there are so many more out there that need saving... God Bless Florida Yorkie Rescue and staff
And God bless you too Donna. Thank you.
I saw a picture of this little 4 pd Yorkie on FYR site and read his story.. he had a lot of aggression and would be hard to place. I applied and was approved to adopt my little Max. (just a couple months ago) .. With this adoption I have made some great friends and have almost tamed this little cranky dog.. lol.. he has stollen our hearts .. I love that FYR is so careful when placing these precious little babies.. It is amazing to me how hard they work at matching the right dog with the right family.. (sometimes they get bashed online by people who were not allowed to adopt from them) but they continue to put these little fur babies first!
THANKS FYR! you are awesome!
We are so happy that "Mr. Cranky Pants" has found a new owner. From what we have heard he is no longer cranky, instead a very much loved and cherished part of your family and he is now a happy little camper. Bless you guys for taking him in when no one else would. The power of L.O.V.E!
Florida Yorkie Rescue is a truly amazing organization ..Kit and her volunteers go above and beyond to rescue and nurse these tiny helpless babies back to health..I adopted a beautiful baby boy in December and couldn't have been more impressed by Kit and Diane's professionalism. The love they have for their rescues is wonderful.
Thank you Patty for your kind words of support and for giving one of our little pups a new home!
This group of wonderful people , go the distance when it comes to helping and rescuing Yorkies in need ! They will go through hell and high water to save these little babies from harms way , and make sure they get the best medical treatment , love and homes possible ! They are all so dedicated to the wellfare of these furr babies ! They are unselfish in theyre time and dedication ! I could not be more prouder to know this wonderful group of people . God Bless you all and Thank you for all you do ! :)
God bless you for your kind words.
I am a donor to this wonderful organization and, just recently, I was able to be a transport volunteer. I wish I lived closer, I would help them all I could. Kit and her wonderful volunteers give a chance for a new life to all their furbabies, regardless of age or condition. FYR has rescued so many Yorkies and Yorkie Wannabes from all conditions, even from puppy mills in other states, they are angels on Earth! God bless them for what they do!
Thank you so much Maryanne. We so appreciate your support and kind words.
Florida Yorkie Rescue is a wonderful organization. Their volunteers truly care for these precious yorkies, some of which have been abandoned or abused by uncaring owners. Kit and her team work tirelessly to nurse them back to health and show them the love they have been denied. FYR's motto should be "No Yorkie Left Behind!"
Thank you and God bless you for your kind words.
I have followed FYR for a while and noticed how hard they work for these babies, especially the sick ones. We adopted our new baby from FYR. Sofia (Cosette) is the perfect dog for us, just the right temperament for our family. She is such a funny little thing she just keeps us laughing! Kit especially works hard for the babies, and makes surethat the home they go to is the right one for all involved.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
I have been following Florida Yorkie Rescue, Inc for a long long time....My heart goes out to Kit and her staff who so much for the 'fur babies' who need help. I wish I lived closer to be able to be more involved with this wonderful organization. I will support Kit and her efforts to the best of my ability thru the years. There is a special place in heaven for folks like Kit !!!!
Thanks Sandie. We so appreciate your support of Florida Yorkie Rescue. God bless you.
We adopted our Tiffany, a yorkie/maltese mix, over 5 years ago from Florida Yorkie Rescue and she is truly a blessing to us. Kit does everything she can to make sure that the right family is chosen for her dogs. FYR deserves all the support they can get. We truly love and admire all the work that Kit and her volunteers do.
Thanks so much for taking the time to express your support here in this forum. We so appreciate it. Give that precious little Tiffany a big hug and kiss from Mama Kit who still misses her to this day!
I LOVE Florida Yorkie Rescue! All there work tirelessly,giving of themselves and their time. I love following them on FaceBook. They do amazing work and have helped save so many poor, innocent, and abandoned fur babies. They deserve all the help and support they can get! Wonderful work y'all do!
Thank you Rhonda. We appreciate your kind words. God bless you.
