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 Groot fka Grunt! He is a very playful 1 1/2 yr old Pit mix. He is full of energy. Groot knows a few commands sit and down. He is going to a trainer to get his playful puppy energy straightened out into proper manners. He will be with the trainer for the month of March and then back into a new foster home who will continue his manners training to have him ready for his forever home.  He gets along with other dogs and children. He did have cats at his first foster home and likes to chase them at 1st but quickly settles in with them. 

Cat of the month

Meet Ninja! He is 10 month old and is a fun and affectionate guy. Loves to rub on your legs and be part of what your doing. Loves to play with toys. He can be a "rowdy boy" and likes to play rough with other cats - chase and wrestling. Please give him the forever home he deserves.
