About TikiHut Akita Rescue Association (TARA)

TikiHut Akita Rescue Association (TARA) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, animal welfare and education organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of orphaned Akitas and is located in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California.

Our group is comprised of volunteers, enthusiasts and foster homes. The members in our organization have come together because of the passion we share for the Akita breed. Our breed is respected and treated as royalty in their native Japan, but here in this country, so many of them sit alone in the local shelters, waiting to die. Each of our members (and their families), work tirelessly to save the many Akitas that end up in these shelters.

In addition to finding new homes and families for these wonderful dogs, we also dedicate our efforts to educating the public about the breed, including but not limited to, the importance of spaying and neutering, proper nutrition, behavior and training information and the genetic issues plaguing our breed.

Each Akita we bring into our program undergoes a thorough health exam, is spayed or neutered, brought up to date medically, and is worked with for basic obedience and socialization. We crate train all our pups and put them through basic puppy classes. All our dogs are microchipped before they are adopted.

The Akitas we take in come from all walks of life. Some have been abused and neglected and some have come from well known breeders. It is a huge misconception that all dogs that come from rescue are all problem dogs. We have seen some of the most wonderfully tempered Akitas come out of these shelters and we hope we can give many more a second chance at the life they never had.
