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 Ford. He is a 7 yr old Chihuahua. He and his brother came to us as owner surrenders. They are litter mates, but the previous owner thinks they will be fine separated. She did say that they were not housebroken. They are being highly supervised with their foster and crated when not being supervised, and been good about not going potty in the house. They are crate trained.  Ford is nervous, takes a little time to warm up, and is not good with children. He is good with other dogs.  He is ready for his forever home. 

Cat of the month

Meet Tiger lilly! She about 18 months old (8/6/18 approx birthday) She is one of the three mama cats we brought in the summer of 2019. Just like the other two mama cats, all of her babies have been adopted. She wonders why no one wants her.. She just hopes it doesn't have to be another full year. She is very relaxed and loving. She is a bit shy and may need a few days to warm up to become the wonderful cat she is. She hopes her new family has lots of toys and sun spots for her to relax in.  She is litter box trained.
