ACAR is here to assist ACAR-approved Akita rescue groups in their daily efforts to protect and support forgotten, discarded, or abused Akitas in need prior to re-homing. Financial assistance from ACAR is dependent on funds raised and availability of those funds.
Support from ACAR’s general fund is limited to $1000 per dog with a maximum of $5000 allocated to each approved rescue for the calendar year.
