Every donation to Shiba Prom goes directly to help Shiba rescues 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 type of dog originally bred as a hunting companion in Japan.
Unfortunately, this new popularity has also created some significant problems. “Puppy mills,” aka animal farms, breed Shibas in poor and often inhumane conditions (which is why the ASPCA recommends that you never buy an animal from a pet store). Some new owners end up realizing that they aren’t ready to fully commit to owning a Shiba, which can result in neglect, surrender,and even abandonment.
That’s where Shiba Prom comes in. We are a U.S.-based, 501(c)3 volunteer organization of Shiba owners and enthusiasts dedicated to building greater understanding and awareness of the Shiba in all its furry, stubborn glory.
Each year, we raise funds through fun events such as photo contests, awesome gift-basket raffles, and more. Our namesake event is Shiba Prom, a wild ’n’ crazy online party that’s just like real prom only better, because Shibas!
We distribute all of the funds we raise in the form of financial grants to Shiba rescue organizations*.

*Shiba Prom NFP volunteers do not earn salaries or receive any financial benefits from Shiba Prom. We operate with as few expenses as possible so that we can distribute the majority of donations to rescue organizations that specialize in Shiba Inus and Shiba mixes. If any of us do participate in a Shiba Prom–sponsored event, we will award any prizes won to the second runner-ups. All Shiba Prom records are publicly available; please contact us with any questions.
