Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, with a presence across the United States. President and Founder MaryElizabeth Dugmore had a desire to help the growing population of lost and abandoned Yorkies and other small breeds that were falling into the hands of puppy mills, backyard breeders and for-profit breeding operations. She also launched, a website to educate and inform the public of the horrors of the conditions in these operations, in the hopes of stopping the sale of puppies in pet shops and online predators. This Agency Endowment Fund supports the work of the organization and its network of volunteers who share the passionate commitment to rescue, foster, rehabilitate and rehome neglected and abandoned Yorkshire terriers.
