Our Mission

Our Mission:

To rescue American Eskimo dogs in life-threatening
situations and place them in loving homes.

Welcome to American Eskimo Rescue (AER) of St. Louis. We are a Heartbandits representative of eastern Missouri and western Illinois.

We are a group of dedicated volunteers, working together for the benefit of helpless and homeless Eskies. Our program is funded by donations and adoption fees. Our volunteers spend endless hours of rescue work which involves transporting, fostering, and networking to save American Eskimo lives.

Adoption from American Eskimo Rescue/Heartbandits includes medical attention that each rescue dog deserves, including all vaccinations, spay/neuter, fecal check, heartworm check, and microchip. These rescue Eskies are then placed in loving foster homes until their forever home is found.

Rescued animals often make the best pets. Pets from American Eskimo Rescue seem to understand they have a second lease on life. In return for a little affection and attention, these remarkable animals reward their new owners with a love and loyalty unmatched anywhere.

If you would like to adopt a lovable Eskie, please fill out and mail in an Application for Adoption. If you would like to become a foster home, please fill out and mail in a Foster Home Application. You can find these forms here on-line or call 314-647-1112.

The loving dog you will adopt will be spayed or neutered, all necessary vaccinations, checked for heartworm, and all medical conditions as necessary. Eskies 1 yr. and under will have an adoption fee of $250, all other adoption fees are $175. This fee covers some of these medical expenses.
