The Lander Pet Connection (Lander, Wyoming 82520) was founded in 1996 by Sydney Miller to rescue abandoned and homeless companion animals, and to provide them with new, loving adoptive homes.


We exist because Lander has no animal shelter so stray dogs, unwanted cats, abandoned puppies, abused pets and all other homeless companion animals have nowhere to turn. Previously, stray dogs impounded by Animal Control were taken to the Wind River Vet Clinic, who was contracted and paid by the city of Lander to keep a dog for five days (there is no city provision of any kind for cats). Because any dog not retrieved by its owner or adopted within five days would be destroyed, the Lander Pet Connection was born.

Once a dog comes to our facility, the Lander Pet Connection steps in and picks up the full cost of boarding and feeding the animal until a home can be found. The care LPC provides includes walking, training, socializing, paying for medical treatment, spaying and neutering, feeding, networking for possible adopters, locating foster homes and advertising the animals’ availability.

We are a no-kill facility.  Once an animal is with us, s/he stays until a wonderful home has been found.

Eskie Rescuers United (Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52408) is a nationwide 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue dedicated to the American Eskimo dog. Save a life; adopt a rescue dog.

Eskie Rescuers United (ERU) is made up entirely of volunteers. They don’t have any building or offices; they’re just a group of people who have opened up their homes to foster dogs that are in need. Volunteers are spread across the United States, and they keep in contact by email, the Internet, and by telephone. No one is paid a salary and most of the volunteers have regular jobs in addition to their work for ERU. You can help by being understanding if the volunteers are unable to pick up a dog, or deliver a dog to you, or do things as quickly as you might like. Most of them have to schedule these things around their jobs and other family commitments.

ERU doesn’t make money by selling dogs. In fact, they lose money with each dog that they foster and adopt out. Most of their money is spent on vet care for the 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.
