Thank you for stopping by Yorkie Luv Rescue. Our mission is to help any Yorkie cross with Yorkshire Terrier that finds itself homeless. Our dedicated group of volunteers will do whatever is necessary to make sure all Yorkies in need will feel safe, healthy and loved until they are placed in a flawless forever home. In addition to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming Yorkies, we work with our communities in order to stress the importance of adopting a Yorkie in the hope of one day eliminating all puppy mills.
Yorkie Luv Rescue began in the ever so sunny Arizona in August, 2014. Did you know that the shelters in Maricopa and it’s surrounding counties have one of the highest kill rates? The moment we learned this, we knew we had to find a way to save these poor animals; to give them another chance at a happy, loving life.
We are dedicated to pulling Yorkies/Mixes from shelters that are not adoptable as well as taking owner surrenders if the owner can no longer care for them. We take every measure to provide a loving home environment and ensure all their needs, medical and otherwise, are met before we begin looking for their Happily Ever After family. Upon intake they will see the vet to get all their shots, spay/neuter, heart worm test, fecal test, microchip and other medical treatments they may need. Once they have recovered, we then begin the process to find them the perfect new home.
We go to great lengths to ensure our pups are matched up with just the right family; and vise versa. Our pets are our family and we make sure we find a good fit. All applicants interested in adoption must first fill out an adoption application. We will then check references, check with their current vet to make sure applicants take great care of current pets and do a home check. If all checks out, we will do a 2 week trial where their adoption donation is fully refundable if it does not work out.
From time to time a dog is considered unadoptable for a variety of reasons such as permanent medical conditions, emotional issues and even age. Sometimes this is apparent before we rescue, other times it is not. These dogs still deserve a loving home and good quality of life. In the Forever Ours program we provide ongoing medical care while they spend the remainder of their life with their foster family.
Yorkie Luv Rescue is committed to finding loving, happy homes for every dog in our rescue whether it be through adoption or in the Forever Ours program. But of course, we could not do this without you. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all of our amazing donors and volunteers. We truly appreciate your generosity.
