Adoptable Dogs

MARS has Akitas available for adoption at several Midwest locations. If you are interested in adopting a MARS orphan, please fill out our adoption application. Many of the Akitas we rescue require extended veterinary and foster care before they become available for adoption. If you would like to help with these expenses, please consider a tax-deductible donation to MARS.
