Koko is one of our Forever Foster's.  Will YOU Sponsor Koko

A Forever Foster is a dog that is either older, has a medical condition or a socialization issue and seem to be unadoptable only because we receive no applications for these dogs thus we assume no one wants to adopt them.   Save A Yorkie Rescue will not euthanize a dog for these reasons and the dogs remain in rescue to live out their lives with their forever foster family.  Their remaining years (no matter what age they are) are spent being well taken care of and loved in their forever foster homes.   Save A Yorkie Rescue pays for all of their vet bills, including all medications they may be on, grooming, food/treats if on a special diet and any supplies one of these dogs may need. 

Save A Yorkie Rescue is able to provide for our Forever Foster's, only through the generous donations we receive from all of the Yorkie lovers out there!

Koko is a 15 year old Yorkie from the Norfolk Animal Shelter. A couple weeks ago we received a call from the shelter saying someone just dropped off a senior Yorkie. Her owner(s) were no longer able to care for her due to failing health. Koko was scared and in need of a home. Of course Save A Yorkie Rescue said yes.Everyone agreed we would not leave her in the shelter. She previously only had one owner and they did the best they could until their health wouldn’t let them anymore. Koko’s world was turned upside down in a matter of minutes. She has been in her new home one week and it seems like we have always had her. She has blended right in with my pack. They seem to understand she needs love and attention. I am reading her cues and letting her set the tone and pace of her day. Surprisingly, she is getting on our schedule. She’s a good eater, has great muscle tone and very clear eyes. Her previous owners definitely cared for her and did a great job socializing her. While the last few months/years have probably been strained, it’s evident she was loved. If only they had brushed her teeth over the years. She has very bad dental disease but she has begun letting me put a little CET toothpaste on her front teeth. Baby steps...

Many thanks to the wonderful people that are Sponsoring Koko!

YOUR generosity is appreciated!

1. Yorkies do not usually get along well with small children and can be injured by small children, even ones who love them. Be aware of this and keep them apart. 2. Yorkies can be very difficult (nearly impossible) to housebreak. If you are gone for more than 3 hours at a time, the dog will have to have access to wee wee pads, or need someone to stop in to let him out to potty.
3. We almost NEVER get a puppy (less than one year old) in Yorkie Rescue. If only a puppy will do, check the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America website for a recommended breeder - never buy over the Internet, or from a newspaper ad or a petstore. The heartache you save will be immeasureable.
4. There is no such thing as a "teacup" Yorkie, so don't be misled by such a description. LEARN about the breed BEFORE you decide to adopt.
5. You will need to make arrangements to drive and meet the dog at the foster home which can be in New Jersey, western PA, Maryland,  etc. The dog's biography lists where the dog is fostering. We want you to meet the dog with your family and your dog, if you have one. This is a requirement for adoption.

Adoption donations generally vary from dog to dog, it depends on the health, the age and the size of the dog.

Young Yorkies will have a higher adoption donation since they are the most highly sought after and they help to cover the costs of the older dogs who have a harder time finding a loving home. It is sad but true that people overwhelming demand very young dogs when they would be infinitely happier with a mellow adult. 


Save A Yorkie Rescue prefers to adopt only in the PA, NJ, western NY, DE, MD, VA, some CT area's. If you are in the NYC area or near Long Island, there is a Yorkie Rescue closer to you. 

Be aware that you will be asked to drive to meet and pick up your dog.
