Yorkie Rescue of the Carolinas is a designated 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of Yorkshire Terriers, Yorkie mixes, and other small breed dogs. If you need to surrender your yorkie for any reason a permanent and loving home will be found. We guarantee it! 


YROC is not a shelter. We are a foster based rescue comprised of volunteers who take rescued dogs into our homes to care for, rehabilitate and rehome them.  All costs associated with the care of our rescues come from adoption donations and from the generosity of donors.  We provide medical care, spaying/neutering, socialization and training of these dogs until a permanent home can be found. 


Through the commitment of our volunteers, YROC also strives to educate pet owners about spaying/neutering, obedience training and other aspects of responsible pet ownership.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Yorkie Rescue of the Carolinas (YROC) is to rescue Yorkshire Terriers, Yorkie mixes and other small breeds regardless of age, health, behavioral issues and physical or mental handicaps.  We never discriminate on the basis of health, age or breed. 


We pledge to promote responsible pet ownership through education and to provide shelter and care to our foster dogs until a loving, responsible and furever home can be found. We also provide life-long, quality sanctuary for any and all pups that may be too old or ill for adoption.
