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 Peanut Butter! He is a 2 year old sweet boy with 23 pounds of energy to burn .PB likes walks and running around the yard. He is a sweet young boy who gets along with everyone. He is ok with cats, but would need a dog savvy cat atleast, and another dog in the home to play with would be best. Loves all toys and if left unsupervised will chew on things he’s not supposed to. He does good in the crate. He is ready for his forever home.

Cat of the month

Meet Spliff. This guy was saved out of some body's car engine on a cold night. Vets are guessing him around 4 years old. He is an awesome easy going guy. Cat friendly and litter box trained. His finder took him into the house and he never bothered her 4 cats and slept on the bed with her. We haven't seen him around dogs or children. Spliff is ready for his forever home.
