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.

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!

All three of our fur babies are from Florida Yorkie Rescue & we are absolutely in love with them!!! On our second experience adopting...Kit convinced us to take a bonded pair!!! It wasn't too hard to twist our arms...they were absolutely adorable and can't even imagine today if we hadn't taken 2 instead of one. They are the best of friends and our Barron (our 1st rescue through FYR adores them). Thank you Kit and your amazing team for all you do for these amazing furry souls ❤️

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!

They get no better than FL Yorkie Rescue! I am Vice President of AL Rescue Relay, we help transport shelter dogs in AL to rescues. In December of 2013 a large Yorkie puppy mill was discovered in AL. I called FL Yorkie Rescue who took several of them. Puppy Mill dogs have some major challenges, they have never been vetted or socialized . They did an amazing job with the ones they took , I am very thankful for their existence ......

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.
