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.
