Northwest Akita Rescue is a 501c3 organization based in Washington State. We cover Washington, Oregon and Idaho and assist in rescue situations out of our area if possible.

Currently we are not able to take in Akitas from owners or shelter situations. The current state of the country has caused our resources for foster homes and adopters to dwindle then stop completely. We hope this changes soon.

We are actively assisting our sister rescues across the country through financial and other support such as transporting, veterinary care, boarding, etc.

NWAR DOES offer support to Akita owners that need advice and help to keep their Akitas in their homes with them. The shelters are full of owner surrenders, folks! You must do everything in your power to keep your Akita safe and your family safe. We are here to try to help you. Please, contact us by email at
