Akita Advocates was started late in 2004 to help find homes for displaced Akitas. Since that time, we have rescued over 200 dogs and found new, loving homes for them. We are a very small group of dedicated volunteers for whom rescue is a full-time second job. However, we have a passion about helping dogs who cannot help themselves.
AARTA is a non-profit organization. We are members of CABRA (Coalition of All Breed Rescue AZ), PACC911 (an umbrella organization that sets up adoption events throughout the county), and are recognized as one of ACA’s rescue groups (Akita Club of America).
All dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, licensed and have their required vaccinations before going into new homes. We provide medical care as needed, and have treated: bloat, entropian, hip dysplasia, Valley Fever, low thyroid, cancer and much more. For dogs that need manners, basic obedience commands are taught. We put out a quarterly newsletter to our adopters that carries articles about health, training, and events we participate in.
We do not have a facility, so all dogs are fostered in homes that can accommodate them. Unfortunately, this keeps the numbers of dogs we can help lower than we’d like.(602) 882-5482
