Our mission is to find new, loving homes for our rescues.  All Akitas are altered, vet checked and evaluated.  An application is a required part of the adoption process and will help to match the right Akita for your household.  With all the costs involved with rescue, we do request a $300 ($350 if a puppy) adoption donation to help defray our expenses so that we may help more Akitas in need. BEAR is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization and donations may be tax deductible.

Neither BIG EAST AKITA RESCUE, Inc. (BEAR), nor its volunteers, coordinators, representatives, Internet Service Provider and its officers, employees, contractors and representatives; and any other person, firm or corporation involved with the efforts or business of this corporation, shall be held liable or responsible for any claims or causes of action incurred as a result of the provision or restriction of information, services, contacts, adoptions, fostering, veterinary care or by the actions of any and all dogs transferred or referenced herein.

Moreover, there is absolutely no guarantee made or implied that any person requesting to adopt a dog being fostered through BEAR, or posted on BEAR's Website, will be allowed to adopt a BEAR Akita. Rather, all adoption applications are subject to acceptance based on a review process that may require collecting information from references and visiting the applicant's home. All decisions on placing dogs in adoptive and foster homes are based solely on the judgment of the volunteers and coordinators of BEAR and adoption applications submitted through this form can be denied for various reasons. BEAR reserves the right to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care whether in, or being placed in, a foster or adoptive home or other facility. In addition, many of the dogs posted on BEAR's Website are under the control of other shelters or owner placements, and BEAR has no control over how these dogs are placed.

By filling out and submitting the adoption application that follows, you attest that you have read the above disclaimer and agree to the terms therein.

Please note that adoption applications only will be accepted from persons 18 years old or older.
