Rakki-inu Akita Rescue - Virginia Beach Pet Shelter

Rakki-inu Akita Rescue

Rakki-Inu (pronounced "Rocky E-new) is a breed specific rescue, dealing only with pure bred Akitas. We are a small Akita rescue located in Virginia Beach, VA. We are a federal non-profit corporation, with 501(c)(3) designation, dedicated to helping Akitas in need. We generally serve Virginia, North Carolina, and parts of South Carolina, but we work where the Akitas need us to! We offer adoptable dogs, rescue, education, and support to Akita owners and adopters nation wide. We are recognized by the Akita Club of America (ACA) and abide by their Code of Ethics. It is our goal to help Akitas in need, educated the public about this wonderful breed, and support Akita owners with any problems they may be having. We primary pull our Akitas from shelters, and we will help an owner re-home an Akita, if necessary, by courtesy listing on our site, assisting with screening applicants, and providing advice on training and behavioral issues.

Adoption Process

We require anyone interested in one of our orphans fill out an application. If that is approved, we will do a home inspection and then have the whole family, including any dogs, come meet the dog(s) they are interested in. We ask an adoption donation of $350; this helps defer the costs of veterinary care and daily upkeep of our orphans. We are non-profit and all funds come from public donations.
