Akita Angels is comprised of a small group of committed and Akita-experienced volunteers who donate their time to help make a difference in the life of an Akita in need.
Akitas are a highly-intelligent, majestic breed that can easily be misunderstood, mistreated, or not given the proper care, feeding, love and respect they deserve. Through education and intervention, we strive to minimize the number of Akitas entering public shelters and needing rescue by creating a better relationship between the dog and their human(s).
Akita Angels helps save the lives of Akitas and other large-breed, dominant and/or high-risk dogs by providing unlimited, no-cost support in the areas of Education, Intervention, Advocacy, and Rescue.
Since 2009, Akita Angels has helped thousands of families who have given up on their Akitas. When we have the opportunity to intervene, we significantly reduce the number of Akitas that are surrendered. We strive to provide a better understanding of the breed and its unique temperament and traits. This helps forge a stronger level of commitment from owners, and creates a better relationship between dog and family. Quite simply, each dog we help remain in the home is one fewer dog that ends up in a public animal shelter, rescue, or unnecessarily euthanized.
Akita Angels provides unlimited, 100% no-cost support to families with Akitas through:
