Every donation to Shiba Prom goes directly to care and services for rescued Shibas throughout the U.S.
Welcome to Shiba Prom! If you know the internet sensation “Doge,” you know the Shiba Inu: a small, bright, and independent breed of dog originally trained as a hunting companion in Japan.
Unfortunately, the Shiba’s popularity has also led to some significant problems. Many new owners aren’t ready to deal with the actual time and energy it takes to train such a unique breed, which results in situations such as owner neglect or surrender. Shibas who escape from home and get lost. And Shibas who are bred in poor and often inhumane conditions by “puppy mills,” aka animal farms. (Note: This is why we recommend that you never buy an animal from a pet store.)
This is where Shiba Prom comes in. We’re a U.S.-based, 501(c)3 volunteer organization of Shiba owners and enthusiasts dedicated to helping improve the lives of Shibas everywhere. We do this by raising funds that we then use to assist rescue organizations that specialize in Shibas. We also work to build greater understanding and awareness of the Shiba breed in all its furry, stubborn glory.
