Mission Statement

Akita Rescue Mid-Atlantic Coast, Inc. (ARMAC), founded in 1984, is one of the oldest Akita rescues in the United States. ARMAC is run solely by volunteers and all funding comes from private donations for the general public. ARMAC fulfills a wide variety of Akita needs in the greater Washington DC area. It educates and offers support to Akita owners, not only those who adopt from ARMAC, but all Akita owners regardless of where they got their Akita. But most importantly, ARMAC saves the lives of Akitas that would otherwise be euthanized in area shelters. All of ARMAC's fostered Akitas are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, tattooed and temperament evaluated prior to adoption. Potential adopters are screened carefully and thoroughly to ensure there is a perfect match between family and Akita. ARMAC's assistance doesn't stop at adoption. ARMAC offers support to its adoptive families throughout the lifetime of their Akita. ARMAC's goal is to avoid Akitas ever being given-up in the first place by educating the public about the breed, its history, and the many challenges that Akita ownership brings with it.

Description

ARMAC's programs include rescue, adoptions/placements, evaluations/assessments, and consultations. ARMAC offers the Akita owning community with support through education, intervention and placement assistance. Additional Comments ARMAC is a nationally known and respected Akita rescue. The fact that we are still rescuing Akitas after 18 years is a testament to our devotion and passion for the breed. All of our funding comes from private donations and the sale of unique Akita merchandise. Even though our budget is small we have managed to rehome thousands of Akitas and give them a loving home
