My story

Both of Kyla's transporters fell in love with her.  One of our volunteers went to take pix of her and here is what she said 'I finally had an opportunity to go out and take photos of Ms. Kyla this weekend. She is ~1.5 yrs. of age and came to us from an Amish breeder who surrendered her due to being 'not cooperative' with the program. At some point, she lost an eye, but this does not seem to slow her down one iota. She is not head shy. She is outgoing and friendly and happy. She has not been introduced to other dogs, but she doesn't seem aggressive to her kennel mates. If you felt as if you missed out on Maggie May, please consider coming to meet Ms. Kyla!'

More about this rescue

Akita Rescue Mid-Atlantic Coast, Inc. (ARMAC), founded in 1984, is one of the oldest Akita rescues in the United States. ARMAC is run solely by volunteers and all funding comes from private donations for the general public. ARMAC fulfills a wide variety of Akita needs in the greater Washington DC area. It educates and offers support to Akita owners, not only those who adopt from ARMAC, but all Akita owners regardless of where they got their Akita. But most importantly, ARMAC saves the lives of Akitas that would otherwise be euthanized in area shelters. All of ARMAC's fostered Akitas are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, tattooed and temperament evaluated prior to adoption. Potential adopters are screened carefully and thoroughly to ensure there is a perfect match between family and Akita. ARMAC's assistance doesn't stop at adoption. ARMAC offers support to its adoptive families throughout the lifetime of their Akita. ARMAC's goal is to avoid Akitas ever being given-up in the first place by educating the public about the breed, its history, and the many challenges that Akita ownership brings with it.
