What is the Eskie Railroad?
The Eskie Railroad is a network of people around North America who have volunteered to transport Eskies relay fashion. Each volunteer transports an Eskie from 50 miles to 200 miles to the next volunteer who does the same. The Eskie Railroad provides a safe, low cost means of transporting an Eskie in need of a home to a home in need of an Eskie.
Our Eskie Railroad Coordinator maintains a list of volunteers and assists in scheduling trips for an Eskie. When a transport is needed, volunteers along the proposed route are contacted about their availability to participate.
You may have seen Heart Bandits Eskie Railroad featured on Animal Planet. "Pet Story", a half hour Animal Planet series, filmed a 1000 mile transport of 2 Eskies to their new adoptive home. The show is a fun and informative ride along the Eskie Railroad. Originally airing in June of 2000, the series reruns from time to time.
