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 Korbyn! is a 2 1/2 year old old Pit Bull.,he weighs 60 pounds.  He is super friendly, very playful and active. He would love an active family! He has been fostered and adopted, both living with other dogs. He is a sweet boy that loves to cuddle on the couch!! He does great with kids, but doesn't know his own size. Please give Korbyn the forever home he needs!

Cat of the month

Meet Oreo! She is 1 1/2 yrs old. She is one of three mama cats we brought in summer of 2019. All of her babies have been adopted, which makes her happy to know they have all found furever homes. She loves it when you hide toys or food for her so she can find them on her own. She hopes that her furever home will give her the chance to be a kitten again!
