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

K KUP AKA KUERIG MALE 11MONTHS 50LBS Mix Breed pup. We were told he is a Cattle Dog/Hound Mix, but he acts much more like a Lab mix. He was pulled from a pound after being found as a stray in February 2022.  He loves to play with other dogs and get/give love & attention. He is crate trained,, housebroken, knows "sit" and "down" but could use improvement, and LOVES rides in a car (crated or seat belted in). He loves a good adventure, going for a walk, playing ball, and swimming, but he also LOVES to give kisses and snuggle on the couch. He is ready for his forever home. 

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.

 I want to thank you for letting Dovi (Dough-Vee) join our family. She is a perfect fit. Her sister Emma loves playing with her and the cats are adjusting. She is having a blast running in the back yard and keeping all squirrels at bay. She has been deemed the Queen of the Zoomies. She is also keeping me fit as we are walking every day and she is so well behaved on our walks. Thanks a million!!! We adore her!!!
