Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
ERU does not make money by selling dogs. In fact, we lose money with each dog that we foster and adopt out. Most of our money is spent on vet care for our foster dogs. Donations and fundraising help make up the difference.
The dogs we foster come from many places. Some are turned in by their owners who can no longer care for them. Others are found as stray dogs, or for one reason or another they wind up in dog shelters. As you probably know, there are too many dogs without homes in the United States, and the majority of them have to be put to sleep due to overcrowded conditions in shelters. ERU works to save as many American Eskimo dogs that we can by rescuing them. We then foster the dogs in the volunteer’s homes, provide veterinary care, and put a profile for the dog on our website.

You may think our application and adoption procedures are a bit stringent or lengthy. Please remember that many of these dogs have already been separated from a home, and not always a loving one. We try hard to make the adoptions successful and make the best possible decisions for the dogs. Our adoption process helps to assure us that you are ready for the responsibility and commitment of adopting a beautiful Eskie.
After filling out the Adoption Application, it will be reviewed and your vet will be called as a reference. (If you do not have a vet because this is your first pet, please know that this will NOT prevent you from being able to adopt one of our dogs.) After the application review and reference check, you will be contacted by an ERU representative for a short telephone interview and to set up a home visit appointment. We want to see where the Eskie(s) will live, play and exercise.
Before releasing a dog to its new "Furever Family", ERU requires that the adoptors sign an Adoption Agreement. This document is a legally binding contract between you and ERU. It confirms that you are aware of the restrictions that ERU places on the disposition of the dog you adopt and the rights to that dog that are reserved by ERU. We strongly recommend that you review the Adoption Agreement before proceeding with the adoption process.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
