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!
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.
Millie LaRue & Mummy is now "Cooking for a Cause!" This new charity cookbook donates a portion of all proceeds to animal rescues and shelter groups. Millie LaRue, the little diva of Yorkshire terriers, asked her friends from around the world to share their favorite recipes--some of them secret family recipes that have never before been revealed! There are over 350 recipes in this FULL COLOR, HARD COVER book. Many of them include a short story about the origin of the recipe, along with prepared dishes and darling pictures of the contributor's own doggie. There are tips throughout the book, from Millie herself, on how to make your cooking experience easier. Seven chapters are devoted to human recipes, while the last chapter is dedicated to doggie fare! So while you are cooking up something for the family, why not whip of a little treat for Fido too? This is a most unique cookbook...like nothing you have ever seen before! Sit back with a cup of tea, open the book, meet Millie LaRue and all of her little friends...and get ready to enjoy a taste of the world without ever leaving home

The Florida Yorkie Rescue family is so excited to present to you “SIDECAR SNAX,” an Organic, Dairy and Gluten free dog treat baked with love by one of our very own Board Members, Paula.
Paula and Rick have their USDA license and everything has been independently Lab tested. They are made with 100% USDA human grade organic ingredients. The first batch being made available online is the Original Peanut Butter Bites.
(For those of you who might remember; Paula has adopted two yorkies from F.Y.R. One she named Sidecar and he is the little boy who had been neglected and abused. When we arrived to FYR he had to have his leg amputated.) His photo is on the package!
