Who We Are

We are a group of VOLUNTEERS who are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of orphaned Akitas.  

We typically save Akitas in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Louisiana but we have traveled all over the United States to save lives!  These Akitas typically come from kill shelters, usually on the euthanasia list due to overcrowding.  Some are owner surrenders who find themselves victims of circumstance within their family whether it be moving, divorce, change of family dynamics etc. We also take dogs who's family's are willing to surrender them when the dog is loose or living on a chain in less than favorable conditions.  Sometimes we also take in moms or pregnant moms to be and have puppies but that's rare.  Sadly we also trap Akitas occasionally who have been left to their own devices for months or years and have become feral and are in danger of being shot and/or hit by vehicles.  They all receive medical treatment and love while we get them prepared for adoption!

Recently the number of orphans that come to us heartworm positive has increased.  (We preach an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - once a month preventative is not expensive and protects your pet!). Typically 4/5 of our intake is heartworm positive and require expensive treatment before they can become adoptable.  Once treated they are as good as new and ready for love!  This increases our need for donations!  LSAR is run solely on private donations from our supporters!  We are a over $10,000 a month operation to care for over fifty orphans! If you feel inclined to donate to our cause, your donation is tax deductible and every penny goes to medical bills and care expenses!  We thank you in advance!
