Our Mission


The perception that most people have of Yorkshire Terriers is that they are a blessed breed.  At Yorkie Rescue of America, we deal with the reality of these exploited animals. Our mission is to rescue Yorkies that are in dire need, most of whom are considered a lost cause by other animal welfare organizations. We are truly their last chance at life.

It is certainly easier to take in puppies and young adoptable dogs, but that’s not who we are. Our mission is to come to the aid of those Yorkies that require extensive medical care and intensive rehabilitation through our dedicated and highly knowledgeable foster network.

When Yorkie Rescue of America accepts a rescue, our commitment is for that dog’s life. Our goal is always to find our animals a loving forever home, but in the event that doesn’t happen for a particular Yorkie, they will live out their lives with us.
