Akita Angels was founded after we spent 3 years volunteering for an Akita Rescue. During that time, we went from a one-Akita household to a multiple-Akita household, and worked with hundreds of pre-adopters, post-adopters, and various families that wanted to give up on their Akitas and surrender them to rescue or to a public shelter. We quickly saw that when we had the opportunity to intervene, we significantly reduced the number of Akitas that were surrendered to rescue or dumped in a public shelter. By providing breed-experienced, no-cost support to anyone who needed our help, we helped families develop a better understanding of the breed and its unique temperament and traits; helped forge a stronger level of commitment from the owners; and created better relationships between the dog and the family. Quite simply, for every dog that we helped keep in the home, it was one less dog that ended up in a public animal shelter, ended up in rescue, or, was unnecessarily euthanized.
