WELCOME TO FLORIDA YORKIE RESCUE
Florida Yorkie Rescue is a designated 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of Yorkies, Morkies & Malteses under 12 lbs. If you need to surrender your yorkie for whatever reason, a permanent and loving home will be found. We guarantee it!
FYR is not a shelter. It is a group of volunteers who work with rescued dogs in our own homes. All costs associated with the care of our dogs come from adoption donations and from the generosity of donors. We provide medical care, spaying/neutering, socialization and training of these dogs until a permanent home can be found.
Through the commitment of our volunteers, FYR also strives to educate and counsel all pet owners about spaying/neutering, obedience training and other aspects of responsible pet ownership. Our organization encourages people to adopt Yorkies, Morkies, Malteses and other pets from shelters, humane societies, and rescue organizations. Florida Yorkie Rescue also provides assistance to adoptive homes to ensure the welfare of all dogs adopted through our organization.
Our number one commitment is to the little Yorkies that come our way. We treat them as if they were our own babies! We carefully screen all applicants to assure your family pet is placed in the most stable and loving home where they will be doted on for the remainder of their life!
FLORIDA YORKIE RESCUE THANKS YOU!

NEED TO SURRENDER A YORKIE?
Please... no late night phone calls.
If you have an emergency then by all means, call us. If you have questions about basic adoptions, they can be answered by reading the information posted below.
THIS IS HOW F.Y.R. WORKS
We do not have a public facility for you to visit and meet our dogs. All of our dogs are in private foster care.
If you want to adopt one of our dogs, please complete the
If you have any questions we prefer you email us instead of calling.
Our adoption committee will review each adoption application. We will choose the families that can best suit the needs of each individual dog. If you are being considered, we will call you to schedule a telephone interview and then check all of your references. The final step is to schedule a home visit at which time we bring the yorkie you are interested in for a "meet and greet."
Our dogs are not free. For an explanation of our requested Adoption Donations, click here.

Florida Yorkie Rescue has spent in excess of $21,000.00 in vet care and expenses for our dogs in the past three months (Liver shunt surgery, orthopedic surgeries, specialty surgeries, neurological testing, and basic spays, neuters, dentals, etc.). As many of you know, we try not to turn any dogs away regardless of age or expensive surgeries that may be required. But the past three months has drained us financially and we need YOUR help! If we cannot pay our Vet bills then we will need to close our doors until all of our current dogs have been adopted and we have time to assess our financial situation. If you can help, please make a donation today!
