Rescues of American Eskimo Dogs
by the AED Organization Of Vancouver
"Vancouver Reskies"

Vancouver Reskies consists of members of the American Eskimo Dogs Organization of Vancouver  who are dedicated to saving the lives of American Eskimo Dogs in Canada.  We help Eskie rescues by helping to find a suitable loving forever home.  

Our mission is to:

Save American Eskimo dogs from unnecessary euthanasia and situations of neglect. We assist American Eskimo Dogs whose owners can no longer provide a permanent home by helping them find suitable loving forever homes.

Here is how we can help:

1. We have a list of applicants who have applied to take in a rescued Eskie. Please email a photo and details of the Eskie that needs rescue and we will forward this to our list of people who have applied to adopt an Eskie. Be sure to include name, age, sex, neutered/spayed, vaccinations, health information and any details about the Eskie important for new owners to know. These details will also be forwarded to our members in case a member is prepared to adopt another Eskie.  We will also post photo and info on our website home page and this Rescue web page.

2. Post a photo and information about the Eskie rescue on our Facebook page:

3. Within the Vancouver Lower Mainland area, many of the BCSPCA branches have a "no kill" policy. Call a nearby SPCA branch to find out about their rescue policies. Some of the BCSPCA branches work with Satellite Adoption Centres which are pet stores and veterinary hospitals to give pets a greater chance for adoption.

In the Vancouver Lower Mainland area, the BCSPCA Vancouver Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing emergency and routine medical care to the animals in their care. You may call them at 604-879-3571. They are located at 1205 East 7th Avenue.

4. If you live in Canada, and you wish to place your Eskie up for adoption, you may consider placing a free advertisement in Canada's largest free classifieds ads site, This is a highly trafficked website and you are sure to get lots of response to your ad. People have reported to us that they were able to re-home their Eskie within a few days. Owners are able to screen applicants directly and this helps all around to find the most suitable new forever home. Choose to place your ad in the largest city close to where you live. There is a section to advertise pets," free to donate". For example, for Vancouver, this is the page to advertise:

"This is an amazing group of people very dedicated to their breed. This organization was instrumental in helping me home a dog that may have been difficult to re-home. These wonderful people were extremely helpful and I learned a lot about the breed from them and their website. American Eskimo Dogs Organization Vancouver help support other rescue societies in their time of need. I invite you to check out their website to see what organizations they help with and if you are interested in learning more about American Eskimos."

Eskie Rescue Adoption Application

If you are interested in adopting an Eskie who has been rescued and is currently being fostered by the American Eskimo Dogs Organization of Vancouver Rescues, please fill out the Adoption Application form found by clicking here.  Your name will be added to our mailing list and when an Eskie becomes available for adoption, you will be notified via email.  If you respond to our email, we will phone you and then meet with you in person to screen you for adoption. Our objective is to find the most suitable forever home for the rescued Eskie. 

PLEASE NOTE:   Eskies are a rare breed.  On average we will rescue about 10 dogs a year.  We appreciate your interest in adopting a rescue, however, you may be waiting for a few months for an adoption.  If you want to get an Eskie now, we recommend you contact the individual breeders listed on our breeders page.  Often breeders will also know of Eskie rescues available for adoption.


SPCA Eskie Rescues

Unfortunately, we have seen an increasing number of American Eskimo dogs appear at BC branches of the SPCA notably at the Vancouver, Surrey and Coquitlam SPCA's. Hardly a month doesn't go by without an Eskie being put up for adoption at one of the SPCA's. People move, get divorced and strays are found. The SPCA dog adoption fee is $299 and there is an application form to fill out. BC branches have a no-kill policy unlike many American branches.

You can find out if an Eskie might be available at one of the SPCA's by calling the branches. Officials from the SPCA's say that the list of available dogs for adoption on their site is not always up-to-date so it's best to call to check.

Eskie Rescues on

The largest web site listing American Eskimo Dogs up for adoption at shelters and rescue organizations is  You can visit the site directly or go to our home page and fill in the Petfinder search box at the bottom of the page. Just type in dog, American Eskimo and your postal code or zip code and a list of Eskies up for adoption closest to you will result.

There are non-profit organizations, mainly family homes, that are dedicated to rescuing American Eskimo Dogs who have been found as strays or put into shelters with kill policies.  Without Rescues, unfortunately a number of Eskies would not be alive today.  If you are considering adopting an Eskie, we urge you to contact an Eskie Rescue group near you.  Many Eskie Rescues will transport the Eskie to you for a small fee. Their aim is to find a good home for the rescued Eskie. Rescued Eskies often make the most loving pets.
