Mission statement: The Akita Club of America Rescue mission is to generate and distribute financial and education assistance to hands-on ACA-approved rescues.
ACAR's provision of funding to approved rescues is dependent on funds raised and availability of those funds.
In September 2017 Akita Club of America Rescue (ACAR) was incorporated in California and the IRS approved and designated ACAR as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
Since December 2017 ACAR has distributed over $90,000 to eight ACA-approved hands-on rescues. ACAR's Emergency Rescue Policy assists rescues when three or more Akitas are taken in at once or a natural disaster occurs and impacts an individual rescue organization.
ACAR provides education on the process to establish a rescue organization and other rescue topics in order to help reduce the number of Akitas abandoned in public and private shelters.
