JAWT 915 - Sheba.
Introducing Sheba! She has had an awful start to life being passed around, somebody "rescued" her recently and planned to breed from her, thankfully he hurt his back so passed her on. The people who then had her, got bored after 5 days and wanted to tie her up outside a rescue centre. She is now being cared for by a small rescue in Colchester and coming out of her shell. She enjoys her food and walks well on the lead.
Sheba may be able to live with a well mannered male as she seems to be well behaved when around the kennels but has not been introduced. She is 5 years young and really deserves a forever home to call her own.
Please get in touch for more information.
The JAWT was the first Akita association dedicated to Japanese Akita rescue registered as a charity in England and Wales, Registration Number 1080152, and has been helping Akitas and their owners for many years.
The main purpose of this site is to give the dogs we love and care for a better chance of finding a new home. On this site you will also find information about the work we do, the people behind the trust and how you can help.
Unfortunately, and like many other breeds, there seems to be a number of people who consider the breeding, rescue and welfare of this breed to be simply a good way to make money for themselves. There are only two reputable, registered Akita rescue charities here in the UK and we all do as much as we can to aid the plight that some of our best loved friends find themselves in.
This trust is registered as a charity in England and Wales as no.1080152, and was the first registered charity in the UK dedicated to the welfare of these animals. The trust relies completely on the donations and sponsorships that it receives. None of the trustees or area coordinators receives any payment for the help and support they offer to the re-homers of these fantastic animals, and in many cases will withhold from receiving payments that they are entitled to in respect of petrol, food and vet bills associated with the fostering of the dogs until permanent homes can be found.
If you would like to know more about how you could help the trust continue its work the please follow the FAQs link at the side of this page.
To see a full list of all the dogs we currently have waiting for new homes click here or follow the 'Dogs in Need' link at the side of this page, or if you have a dog that you would like us to help rehome, please complete the form found here and we'll make contact with you.
It's been a great start to this years re-homing with both Elvis and Choji adopting their foster parents.. We welcome them to the exclusive failed fosterers club
Also Eden, Hajime, Bertie & Kira, who are four of the eight puppies that JAWT stepped in to take care of at the end of October have gone to their furever homes
Please take a look at our dogs in need section for those dogs still available for adoption
That since the trust was founded in 1998 it has helped over 1000 Akitas, both Japanese and American type, find new homes!
