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.

This full grown boy was surrendered to our rescue when he was found running loose in a neighborhood for several days.  First stop:  Vet.  No surprise, this neglected, abandoned boy was diagnosed with heartworm disease.

Jake is a friendly, happy little dog.  He gets along with other dogs, however during treatment, he should not engage in 'rough play'

We allow our dogs in HW Treatment to be fostered by their adoptive family.  We maintain legal ownership of the dog to ensure the treatment is completed. (at our expense)  

We allow our adopter to take the dog home.  Love him, bond with him and care for him throughout his treatment.   30 days after his last treatment, we finalize the adoption.  

You may submit your adoption application for Jake.  If approved, you will be provided all the necessary information and medication to help him through this period.  Dogs who recover from heartworm disease go on to live normal lives and make excellent family pets.

Jake needs a family who cares enough to make sure he gets to the other side of this this hateful disease.

Is that you?

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.   

We usually arrange our M&G at this PetSmart

Donations are accepted via paypal
