Akita Club of America Rescue(ACAR) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. ACAR existed as a fund-raising committee of the Akita Club of America for many years. With a goal to make a greater impact on rescue efforts, ACAR was reorganized in 2017 and became a separate not-for-profit organization. The ACA appointed a board to oversee the operations and fundraising activities. In September 2017, the IRS approved and designated ACAR as a 501(c)3 and the organization began operations.

Because ACAR’s purpose is to generate and distribute financial and education assistance to hands-on ACA-approved rescues, two specialized committees provide ACAR with the means to accomplish those goals. All ACAR Member Rescues are 501(c)3 charitable organizations.
