President's Message
May, 2019:

[I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, as we now look forward to those warm days of summer. For some of us here in the Northeast, it can’t come soon enough...!

I would like to start off by thanking Barbara Sikkink for all her hard work on the Performance Committee. I would also like to thank Anita Palmer
for stepping up to replace Barbara as the Performance Chair. Many thanks to all the folks who have begun working on the new Breeders Education manual. This is no small task! This manual is quite lengthy and detailed, as it covers a vast number of topics which are beneficial to breeders. We hope this valuable manual will eventually be available in an electronic format, on our website (under the member section), as well as for purchase in hardcopy. If you would like to assist, we welcome your help. Please contact Francee Hamlet, or Tamara Larson.

The ACA still needs folks to step up…We are seeking a Show Chair for 2020. Read More

ACA Rescue - We Have The Best Support Around

The Akita Club of America Rescue has existed as a fund-raising committee of the Akita Club of America for many years. In 2017, it reorganized as a separate not-for-profit organization, now known as ACAR. The IRS approved and designated ACAR as a 501(c)3 in September, 2017 and the organization began operations.

ACAR Mission Statement

ACAR's mission is to generate and distribute financial and education assistance to hands-on ACA approved rescues.

  • We believe that rescue volunteers & all Akitas have inherent worth & deserve our help.

  • We believe that we have a responsibility to our communities & our breed to provide accurate, honest, educational materials about Akitas.

  • We believe integrity is the cornerstone of breed rescue

  • We believe treating people fairly, ethically, honestly & in a caring manner is vital to the success of this committee.

  • We believe in promoting ethical breeding practices & teaching responsible ownership.

  • We believe we are mandated to work together in planning, setting goals & standards, & fund raising to support the work of rescuing Akitas.
