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.

Akita Club of America

The Akita Club of America is a member of the American Kennel Club and, as such, is the only National Akita Breed Club which is recognized and sanctioned by the AKC. The main objectives of the Akita Club of America are the preservation and protection of the breed and improvement of the character and conformation of the Akita as described in the official breed standard.

About the Akita

A natural monument in Japan, the Akita’s proud heritage includes hunting large game such as bear, elk, and boar. This powerful and dignified member of the Working Group is renowned for courage and loyalty, but may not be tolerant of other animals. His luxurious double coat can include any combination of vibrant colors. Aloof toward strangers, they form strong family bonds. Highly intelligent with keen sense of humor, the Akita responds best to respectful commands and training techniques that rely on motivation rather than force. Strong-willed and proud, Akitas are not receptive to abusive methods. Akitas originated in Japan many, many years ago, and have been designated a natural monument of Japan. They are a large, impressive breed with natural guarding instincts. While generally reserved with people they don’t know, Akitas are affectionate with their family. They tend to be independent, and while they will always know where you are in your home, they do not need constant attention as do some of the more dependent breeds. For more about this amazing breed, please spend some time here at our site. There’s a wonderful world to explore.
