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
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,
www.kijiji.ca. 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: http://www.kijiji.ca/b-free-pets-donate-pets/vancouver/c113l1700287
"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."

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
You can find out if an Eskie might be available at one of the
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.
