Washington Akita Group, Inc. (WAG) is a small group of concerned Akita people dedicated to the rescue and placement of orphaned Akitas in Washington State (Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming as foster or kennel space allows). Our primary mission is to find good homes for abandoned Akitas, most coming from local animal shelters after being found as strays or given up to shelters by their owners. We DO NOT take dogs directly from an owner except under extraordinary conditions. We help transition the dogs into their new homes by providing proper nutrition, veterinary care, grooming, socialization and love before placement. We offer support for Akita owners and education for our communities about the Akita as a breed and the need for responsible dog ownership.
WAG is now an IRS approved 501(c)(3) public charity. Donations are tax deductible.

The Great Crate Hunt
WAG needs a large plastic type crate to help transition Jack into a forever home. It does not need to be new or pretty! Please let us know if you have one you can donate. Jack's foster family is located in NW Washington, but we may be able to arrange transport if you are not in that area. Thank you!
