Save Our Seniors

We created a special Program just for our Seniors Yorkies. The rate of senior yorkies being surrendered to Florida Yorkie Rescue or at local shelters has reached an alarming rate. Many of them have been sadly neglected, others are ill and in need of expensive medical care. It is very difficult to find new homes for these dogs as most families are more interested in the younger dogs. It is heartbreaking but we persevere and try to save as many as we can. When a new senior arrives we provide all the needed medical care and in many instances they become a permanent foster dog because of the inability to find new homes for these dogs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Florida Yorkie Rescue's latest goal is to create a senior yorkie sanctuary for aging yorkies and other small breed dogs that have been abandoned or left in shelters and have special needs or age related illnesses. We will also provide a Lifetime Caregiving program for yorkie owners who wish to create a Pet Trust for their dogs (of any age) in the event of their illness or passing. Our sanctuary will provide perpetual care and companionship for the remainder of their lives.

We continue to raise awareness to the public of the need of these senior dogs that are being abandoned or discarded in record numbers.

Currently we have a large groups of volunteers who foster many of the senior dogs we receive in our program that provide permanent care for them. Our future goal is of course, to provide a facility for these dogs.

We have not yet raised enough funds to create this much needed facility.
