President's Message
March, 2019:

As we welcome Spring… Even while most are starting to question Punxsutawney Phil’s honesty, or perhaps his twisted sense of humor, the ACA Board is putting together its Nominating Committee, as they seek candidates for several positions available on the Board.

The positions are as follows:


Recording Secretary

Region Representative (Region 1, 2 & 3)

AKC Delegate

Delegate at Large

Please contact Elizabeth Fulghum if you are interested in volunteering your time to serve in one of these positions at: [email protected]  Eligibility rules require a candidate to have been an ACA member for at least four years, yet not necessarily consecutive, prior to nomination. 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.
