Akita Rescue Mid-Atlantic Coast, Inc. (ARMAC) has been serving the eastern seaboard for nearly 30 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. 

UPCOMING ADOPTION EVENTS:  Don't miss the opportunity to visit with some of our adoptable Akita's, pickup some unique Akita merchandise, and chat with other Akita fanatics just like you!
