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

Welcome back Beans. He is from our tool litter born 12-22-22 and was returned recently. He is now just over 7months old and weights 45 lbs. He is a medium sized mix of a lot of breeds. Beans has been neglected in all areas but is learning boundaries quickly He has so much love to offer he just doesn’t know what to do with it all. He can sit, give a paw, speak, and we almost have stay mastered. He is crate trained and does not mess in his crate. Beans will need a fenced in yard, no apartments, and preferably no small dogs. Beans is cat friendly also.

Cat of the month

Salami Mommi is 2 1/2 yrs old and was an owner surrender. (As well as her 3 adolescent kittens, which have all been adopted). She is looking for a home where she can be queen of the castle. She does not like other cats and I don't think she has ever been around dogs. She was living with children, so kids that are used to cats is an option. She is litter box trained, loves wet food, and is very affectionate and loves attention.
