You can find Akita puppies to adopt by calling or visiting local shelters, such as those operated by the Humane Society. Akita puppies are also available for adoption on AdoptaPet.com and PetHarbor.com.
If you contact your local shelter directly or search its website, you may come across your desired pet. The key is to keep looking online, visiting the shelter and even registering for notification when the shelter takes in an animal of your specified breed and age. Some shelters receive new animals on particular days and do not register them for public viewing for hours.
AdoptaPet.com connects you to thousands of pets and their owners or rescuers. Just type in the breed of dog you are searching for in the search box, and select the desired age. The search engine also gives you the choice to receive notifications via email in the event the results do not bring the kind of Akita puppy you desire. The results often reveal both mixed breed dogs and purebred dogs. The specific breed mixture is displayed after you click the Details link.
PetHarbor.com is a good place to start looking for Akita puppies through its links to local rescues and shelters. Just type in the city or ZIP code, and select the Adopt a Dog tab. This starts a process that allows you to select your search criteria, including specific shelters, breeds and ages.
