President's Message
December, 2019:

I’m pleased to announce ACA has secured the Wyndham Indianapolis West for the 2020 ACA National Specialty. The National Specialty will be held Monday through Saturday, October 12-17, 2020.
I want to thank Keith Venezia for stepping up and working diligently and tirelessly with the site search and hotel negotiations. Hundreds of hours have been devoted to this urgent situation, and Keith was instrumental in every stage of finding and securing this new, beautiful hotel for our Specialty. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done.
We know many of you had already made plans, including flight arrangements, and we did our best to minimize change as much as reasonably possible. We focused on preserving the Specialty date and made every effort to find a site as close as possible to the original host hotel. 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.
