We are a nonprofit organization.

Without these adoption fees, we would not have the funding to take in all Yorkies in need. Yorkies Inc. completely vets every dog we take in. All dogs are groomed given a complete exam and brought up to date on all vaccines. They are also given a dental cleanings, spayed/neutered, heartworm tested and any medical needs and needed surgeries are met before placement.  We are only interested in loving responsible homes that are willing to commit to the care and up keep of the pup for a lifetime.

 

Why charge an adoption fee?

You may ask "Why would you charge an adoption fee? Why not just place in a good home?" The answer is: because we rely heavily on these adoption fees in order to be able to take in ALL Yorkies in need. A young, healthy dog may cost us $300-600 in vet care, and have many homes interested in adopting him/her. An older or sick yorkie, or one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500+ in veterinary expenses. He/she may require months of foster care for rehabilitation or expensive surgery, yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee. Often times these are also the same dogs that don't receive as many inquiries for adopting. 

 

Help defray the costs.

Please keep in mind that the adoption fees of younger, healthy dogs help defray the higher costs of the veterinary care of older, injured or sick dogs. We hope that people looking to adopt through Yorkies Inc. are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. 

 

Cherished companions and family members

If you are not willing to pay the adoption fee now, then you are not likely to pay for quality food or to see to the pups health care needs in the future. Remember, we are looking for our pups to become family members and cherished companions, not a convenient impulse purchase. If you are only looking into "rescue" as a way to save money or "don't want to pay breeder prices" please check your local shelters. They are able to adopt out much cheaper as they are often state and/or federally funded and have vets on staff.
