We never want Yorkshire Terriers to suffer!

S.A. Yorkie Rescue

The SPCA (including animal welfare organizations like PAWS, DARG, Adopt-a-pet and Tears) is a humane society looking out for animal welfare. Animal rescue being their aim. If you adopt a dog you are supporting what these humane societies stand for. Still the SPCA has to end many lives everyday and they need help to find appropriate homes to truly rescue a dog in need. 

If you adopt a dog in Cape town you are part of this movement, but the truth is that for a dog rescue to be successful it involves cost and effort. It takes more specialized dog rescue organizations (for example save a yorkie rescue in the USA) to help with the crisis of animal welfare. So adopt a dog in South Africa today.

We have been unofficially involved in rescuing homeless yorkies for the past five years and have so far been able to find loving homes for all of them. It is our goal to help as many surrendered yorkies as possible and to find them the very best homes.

Please keep in contact with us if you wish to rescue a yorkie.

There are many fees involved when rescuing a Yorkie. Most often the teeth need to be operated on and properly cleaned. They need to be spayed and sometimes neutered. Often other special vet care is also needed. They sometime need serious rehabilitation too. We try to keep the adoption fee from R600 to R1200 to help defray the expenses involved.
