Now that I'm home, bathed, settled, and fed, All nicely tucked into my warm new bed. I would like to open my baggage Lest I forget, There is so much to carry - So much to regret.

Hmm... Yes there it is, right on the top - Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss, And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.

As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave - I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain. I loved them, the others, the ones who left me, But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me. Will you add to my baggage? Will you help me unpack? Or will you just look at my things and take me right back?

Do you have the time to help me unpack? To put away my baggage, To never re-pack? I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see, But I do come with baggage - Will you still want me?

It is with heavy hearts that we announce OK Yorkie Rescue will be closing it's doors effective September 30, 2016. We have strived to provide the best veterinary care, a warm and nurturing environment, and a new forever home for our rescues. This endeavor has been a joy and a labor of love. During the last 8 years we have rescued almost 800 yorkies and yorkie mixes.

We would like to thank all of our volunteers, donors & adopters. Without your support we could not have done it!

Some of our volunteers, as well as any rescues that have not been adopted, will be going to Oklahoma Westie Rescue to continue looking for their forever home. We hope you will support them as you have supported us.

With Love, OKYR
