Chip needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping him get a new start?

All dogs listed here are available for adoption from Yorkie Rescue Houston.  Our goal is to ensure our rescued pets go to their forever home and never end up back in the system.  To that end, an application is required on all potential adopters.   Our adoption fee varies by dog.  We accept electronic funds via VENMO or Paypal, or cash only.

Puppies too young to be spayed/neutered are available for Foster-to-Adopt only.  A FTA contract is required.

Please be sure to read our policy on puppy placements.  Puppies will not be placed in homes with children under 5 years of age, nor with applicants who are aged 68+


Since the puppy is too young to be neutered, and has not finished his vaccinations he cannot be legally adopted yet.  As a result, he must be placed in 'foster to adopt' homes.  This means, the rescue still maintains legal ownership of the dog and upon reaching 16 weeks (and 4 puppy shots on board) we complete the adoption contract.  His neuter date is 2/14/23  (13 weeks + 5 days)

As a foster, you would be required to get the puppy to our vet (in Spring, TX) for regular visits for vaccinations. (the rescue pays for this).

If this is a problem your application cannot be approved.

You may apply to adopt from us directly from our web site.  Please visit and submit your ADOPTION application.  Upon review, a volunteer will contact you if there are questions.  Please be as thorough as possible in the answering the questions.  Missing phone numbers, invalid addresses, or other inaccurate data will cause your application to be denied without further processing.

If approved, we will forward your application to the foster for review.  If the foster feels like this is a ‘good fit’, they will contact you to schedule  a 'home visit'  

Should be you approved to 'foster-to-adopt' (FTA), you will be asked to execute a Foster-to-Adopt  Contract and submit ½ of the adoption fee.   balance due at final vetting.

you may meet the puppy at this PetSmart on one of our scheduled adoption events

Donations and adoption fees are accepted via CASH and VENMO ONLY

Please be patient if our response time is not as quick as you'd like.  We are all volunteers and do as much as we can when we can.

Good luck, and thank you for considering adoption.
