300 Yorkies outside Pretoria need to be rescued

"The confiscated dogs in our care are doing well. They are NOT up for adoption, as we have to await the outcome of the court proceedings. The investigation is still ongoing."
This is an update given by the Tswane Spca on 30 March 2015 after 30 out of 300 dogs were confiscated at well known breeder Renee Visage's house in Kameeldrift, just outside Pretoria.
The entire world is shocked and came to a standstill and we demand answers, without interfering with the legal process. We thus urge you to tell us what your intentions and modes operandi is regarding the remaining 270 dogs, still living in those horrendous conditions.

Many are asking where the Yorkies come from...

The fact is that there are many out there, and if you paint a bad picture of those who surrender them, they will stop surrendering their Yorkies and you won't hear of them any longer. 

As with any other breed, we need people to surrender their Yorkshire Terriers to give the dog the best life possible.

S A Yorkie Rescue is having a wonderful amount of interest in our orphans. We were concerned, but so far we are having no problem finding homes for our friends.

We are unfortunately not able to help everyone immediately. We need to take enough time to treat each yorkie as an individual, to understand their own particular personality and habits. We do not know all the dogs' backgrounds, ages etc. and therefore request patience on the part of our yorkie rescuers.

There are some young dogs that are helping to pay the bills, and there are many older ones that need special care and attention. For example we have one old blind girl, she loves to be spoken to and played with.

We would ideally like all the dogs to be spayed or neutered upon leaving the premises, but since that is not possible right now we need to be extra vigilant about finding responsible owners.

Thank you to everyone who is willing to take on a rescue, whether it is a younger dog which helps to pay our kennelling costs or an older dog that requires more of your time for their special care and attention that they deserve.

We have 28 new yorkies
