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 from the general public. ARMAC serves a wide variety of Akita needs in the greater Washington DC area. It educates and offers support to all Akita owners whether they are ARMAC adopters or not. But most importantly, ARMAC saves the lives of Akitas that would otherwise be euthanized in area shelters.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Public Education

To educate the public about the Akita breed. Our main focus is on those individuals and families interested in adding an Akita into their home. The Akita breed is not for most families, thorough education in the breed is one of the most important ingredients to a successful adoption.

Population(s) Served

We strive to offer support and training to all Akita owners, no matter where they acquired their Akita from. It's imperative to reach Akita owners experiencing problems with their Akitas before they have reached the point of no longer wanting to solve the problems, but rather just want the Akita removed.

Population(s) Served

We offer the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of Akita dogs to qualified homes. Most of the Akitas that come through our program are from area animal shelters, but they are evaluated for sound temperament before entering our program. All Akita's are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations. parasite free, and most are crate trained. We adopt within a 3-hour driving distance from the DC metropolitan area.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
