Akita Rescue Mid-Atlantic Coast, Inc. (ARMAC) has been serving the eastern United States for nearly 40 years.  We fulfill a wide variety of Akita needs in the greater Washington DC area.  We help educate potential Akita owners; we offer support to Akita owners, not only those who adopt from us, but all Akita owners regardless of where they got their Akita.  But most importantly, we save the lives of Akitas that would otherwise be euthanized in area shelters.  All of our fostered Akitas are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and temperament evaluated prior to adoption.  Potential adopters are screened carefully and thoroughly to ensure we have a perfect match between family and Akita.  Our assistance doesn't stop at adoption, we offer support to our adoptive families throughout the lifetime of their Akita.  

PLEASE NOTE:  ARMAC's guiding tenent and number one responsibility is to our Akitas.  We reserve the right to place them in the home that we feel is best suited for them.  Applications submitted will be held for ONE year and then destroyed. 

BLOAT is ALWAYS an emergency. Every dog owner should know, and recognize, the symptoms of Bloat. Visit our BLOAT page, learn about this life-threatening condition and watch the video, the knowledge you gain may one day save your Akita's life!
