Akita Rescue Groups

The Akita Club of America (ACA) maintains an official directory of Akita Rescue Groups throughout the United States as a service to the general public. These Akita Rescue groups serve the overall needs of homeless Akitas and meet the requirements for an ACA Rescue Fund Identification Number. They also support the ACA Rescue Code of Ethics.

If you have any questions please contact ACA Rescue:

Disclaimer: These Rescue Groups are separate 501(c)(3) entities and ACA does not regulate or supervise their operations, procedures, or adoption requirements and is therefore not responsible for their actions.
