Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie
Tell a friend about Coco Donate in honor of Coco (donations are tax-deductible)

More about Coco

Coco's original owner died and she was taken in by a young woman. The woman discovered that Coco was 14 and that she needed a dental and reached out to us because she said she couldn't afford the medical care of the dog. She asked us to take Coco.

We took Coco in and have raised the money for her dental. She will be all fixed up and ready to get adopted!

Coco LOVES children and lives with other dogs and cats too. She is so easy to take care of and so very sweet. She's like a stuffed animal come to life!

Adopt a senior, they need homes! They are so easy and loving and it's so worth it.


Other Amount
Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
