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.

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 Florida Yorkie Rescue! I have followed the rescue on Facebook for a few years and recently decided to volunteer. The group is amazing and everyone is dedicated to helping these little furbabies. You can not find a more friendly and selfless group then Kit and her volunteers. They make sure that these babies get the best care possible and find the perfect home for each and every one of their rescued babies. I am so excited to continue to be a part of this wonderful team!!

I follow Florida Yorkie Rescue very carefully! I have found Kit and the volunteers to be totally selfless in their rescuing and caring for these dogs in need. Kit is totally dedicated to her work with helping these precious little ones who otherwise might not have a chance at a new life. She seems to be very careful in her selection of adoptive homes and doesn't just adopt them out to make room for new ones. I have been touched by her love, devotion and caring of these precious little forgotten furbabies. I pray for her, her husband and the little dogs every morning that their needs are met in every area. I live in another part of the state and I am not able to volunteer or help her which I would love to be able to do! I do try to support her financially when I can and prayerfully daiy. I am so thankful that there are rescues like Florida Yorkie Rescue who genuinely care and love these little dogs. God bless Kit, all the volunteers and Florida Yorkie Rescue for the devotion they show to the helpless!

I really should be able to check all the boxes for my role since I have been a client served, a volunteer and now am honored to be a Board Member. I am blessed to have adopted two Yorkies that FYR rescued from horrendous circumstances, nursed to health and rehomed with me. Barney was kept in a cage his whole life. He came to FYR nothing but skin and bones with severely infected teeth and those that weren't infected were cracked and worn down from trying to chew his way out of his cage. Sidecar was abused to the point of a severely fractured ankle which was not treated for well over a month. FYR took these dogs in, supplied the medical/surgical help that they needed. They gave them love and security and found them homes (with ME!) The adoption process is thorough because they match dogs with adopters who are willing and able to provide the best possible homes for their dogs. They have a 100% success rate. Some dogs may wait a little longer for that furever home, but are kept in foster homes and loved until the right people come along.

FYR has an incredible network of vets, transporters, adoption facilitators. At no time have I ever seen anything but the utmost concern for the dogs and their well being.

FYR also takes in dogs from Puppy Mill busts, hoarding situations and unscrupulous "rescue" groups.
I can't say enough about FYR and that's why I volunteer my time and my heart with them.

We're currently stationed overseas with the US Army, but our home is Florida. As of right now I have only been able to watch this wonderful group from afar through social media. I am super impressed by their compassion, eagerness, willingness and capability to help as many pups as humanly possible. And what a super group of volunteers they have around them.....always willing to jump in and sometimes drive clear across the state to help another fur baby. I can NOT wait to be closer to home again...get involved and get a brother or sister for our sweet Emma girl from Florida Yorkie Rescue, Inc.

Florida Yorkie Rescue cares. They care about the dogs, they care about the dogs families, they care about the community, they care about other rescue groups, they care about their volunteers and board members, they care about their vet they use and they care about me. This organization gives back and is always there to help dogs and people in need. I am not only a donor of time and money but I have also donated a piece of my heart to Florida Yorkie Rescue. Thank you for all you do.

Florida Yorkie Rescue has to be the the most caring, compassionate group of people I have ever met! I have helped with transporting dogs for them a couple of times and they are always extremely organized and on top of every detail. The entire group of volunteers, fosters and board members give 100% of themselves for these little dogs. They absolutely make sure the homes the dogs are adopted out to are the perfect match for each situation. I love FYR and they deserve so much recognition and commendation for their efforts to better the lives of the sick, abused and unwanted dogs that they take care of.

All volunteers and members of Florida Yorkie Rescue are compassionate, work day and night to save lives. They love every dog they take into rescue as if they were their own personal dog. These all volunteers work tirelessly to pair a family with the RIGHT dog. They take their time very carefully matching up personality, activity level, kids, cats, etc. Wonderful, wonderful Rescue

Although I have just signed on as a volunteer I have been a "cheerleader" for this unselfish organization for sometime. Everyone works so hard to save these poor "throw-away" fur-kids. It is an amazing organization of which I cannot say enough. Wish I could give more then 5 stars. Kit is amazing and she deserves many, many more stars for what she and this organization and volunteers do.
