The United Yorkie Rescue, for example, is a breed-specific rescue group that has shelters and facilities in various cities in the United States, including San Diego and New York. The group requires interested adopters to submit an adoption application online. The placement process may include bringing the dog into your home, allowing the rescue representative to evaluate your family's interaction with the puppy or dog. The United Yorkie Rescue also requires adopters to be at least 25 years old and financially capable of providing for the dog's necessities.
Many local animal shelters use pet adoption sites to advertise Yorkies in their care. Use the search tool on Petfinder.com or AdoptAPet.com to look for Yorkies in a local animal shelter within your vicinity.
