Doing good for Yorkies

I am a volunteer member of the Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue.

I joined this group because I wanted to put my needlework skills to a good cause. This group takes ill, abandoned, injured or abused yorkshire terriers and yorkie mix dogs, treats their medical needs, and re habilitates them, before allowing them to be placed in new homes.

All dogs that are adopted through this group will 'receive' in their new home, a care package, that includes a soft knit or crocheted dog blanket, some treats, dog accessories and a crocheted yarn 'ruffle-ball.' Each blanket and ruffle ball is made by our volunteers from yarn they either bought or were given to them by friends or family.

Yorkshire Terriers do have some genetic health problems, and this non-profit nation wide volunteer group helps restore the animals to good health, foster them in a home setting to rehabilitate them, so these 'restored dogs can be placed into loving homes.
