Whoever said money can't buy happiness, never paid an adoption fee!
AJ's Search and Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit animal rescue based in Akron, Ohio founded in 2016. We rescue animals and search to find them a forever home.  We are a foster based organization that takes homeless dogs and cats into our homes and provide them with proper medical care, food, shelter and love until they find their forever home and get adopted. 
Our Mission
To Save Lives, One Paw at a Time! We provide temporary shelter to stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals for the purpose of finding them their forever homes.
We strive in getting the homeless animal population to decrease by spaying and neutering all of our animals before they continue their journey into their new home. 
Dog of the month

MEET BELLAMY a 2YO 40 POUND FEMALE. We are looking for an EXPERINCED Australian Cattle Dog home for this fun and active girl. She is no couch potato, but as long as she has something to do each day she is good. Best to be crated in the car or will whine. She is crate trained and housebroken. She does well with her foster dog sibling, but will tell the other dog off if it gets too rough. She is super sweet, loves attention, learning new things for cookies, and going on adventures. She is a bit nervous when meeting new people (especially large men) but a little time and cookies she good to go. We will Not be placing her in a home with cats or kids at this time, as we have not seen her around them.

Cat of the month

Duke is 5 month old and is a sweet friendly boy who was found outside as a baby. He is litter box trained and good with other cats - we have not seen around kids or dogs.  He was tolerant of dogs through a gate. This animal is current on all age appropriate vaccines, dewormed, and neutered.
