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.

Pretty sure Callie hit the Jackpot! Well i think all our fosters animals do.  

Thought I would share some more pictures and Callie stories. We recently discovered that Callie loves to be in the water and play and swim. She is such a good and obedient dog and without a lot of distractions we trust her off leash so we took her to Munroe Falls park to play on the water yesterday.
