The Gift of a Lifetime

Ways to Give

We've experienced the joy of placing deserving dogs in compassionate, forever homes for over a decade.  The rewards are tremendous and heartwarming beyond compare.

Sadly, we've also witnessed unfathomable abuse, neglect and cruelty.  Just when you think you've seen it all, a special needs dog comes along and with it comes heartache and tears. Some of these dogs have physical scars while others have emotional scars. 
We've been in the presence of some extraordinary Akitas, who  possessed a faith in humankind that never wavered, despite the horrific abuses they suffered.
It's Akitas like this who embody the very meaning of our name and what it evokes in us.
These photos depict some of the special Akitas throughout the years, that have had a profound impact on my life in rescue.  These incredible Akitas remain a part of me forever.
These dogs are an example of why donations are a necessary part of our rescue efforts.

Your donations help support all the dogs we bring into our program.  Those who have been abused, forgotten and abandoned need more than others.  Some need extensive rehabilitation or medical care.  Others may be happy and well adjusted, but a victim of circumstance beyond their control and simply need a place of respite until they find their permanent home.

If we've helped you in some way, either by assisting in helping you keep your Akita, helped you to re-home your Akita or assisted you with a health or behavior challenge, and you value our service, we'd welcome any donation you'd like to make.  Any amount you wish to contribute is appreciated.  There is no such thing as a donation too small. 

Please look for the "Yellow Donate Button" or the "Puppy Donate" icon located throughout our website.  Anywhere you see these buttons, you can click on them to make a donation.

Also, because we are a recognized 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, your donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.  Our EIN 47-4607288.
Thank you for your support!
