About Rakki-Inu Akita Rescue

Rakki-Inu, pronounced "rocky ee-new," is a 501(c)(3) Akita rescue group located in Virginia Beach and generally serving Eastern Virginia, North Carolina and parts of South Carolina. The name means "lucky dog," which is both an acknowledgment of the Akita's status as a national treasure of Japan--and that any dog saved from starvation, neglect, abuse, or homelessness is lucky to have made it to rescue.

Rakki-Inu offers adoptable dogs, rescue, education, and support to Akita owners and adopters nation wide. They are recognized by the Akita Club of America (ACA) and abide by their Code of Ethics.
