Kato's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Kato's Story...
Kato comes into rescue after his owner stated they had no time for him. Kato was extremely underweight and full of parasites and had been brought back to a healthy adoptable state and was once again adopted out to a home. Once again he was surrendered back to us due to his owner having personal issues, which were no fault of our boy Kato. If there were ever a sweet loving happy go lucky Akita it is Kato. Why is it he keeps being let down by those who claim to love him?

We feel this young beautiful happy boy deserves a break He is healthy, active, and just wants to enjoy life. Kato would do best in a home with a active, breed experienced owner who enjoys walks, playtime, and having a best friend for LIFE.
Kato wants all of the love for himself, so it best he be a only pet. Kato also has a history of living with children ages 7 and 9 years of age.

If your interested in Kato, please go to our website at and fill out a online adoption application for him. Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kato, a Toms River Akita dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Akita for sale in Toms River, or seeking a Akita dog from a breeder in Toms River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toms River already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toms River breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Akita breeders who help with Akita rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toms River paves the way for another one to be saved.
