Every Shiba Prom donation goes directly to support 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 dog originally bred in Japan as a hunting companion.
However, the Shiba’s new popularity has also created some major issues. Puppy mills—also known as animal farms—breed them 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 eventually realize that they’re not ready for the specific challenges of owning a Shiba. All of this can lead to 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, Shiba gift-basket raffles, and more. Our namesake event is Shiba Prom, a wild ’n’ crazy live chat that’s just like real prom only better, because Shibas! All of the donations* we receive are distributed throughout the year in the form of financial grants to Shiba rescues throughout the U.S.

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 runners-up. All Shiba Prom records are publicly available; please contact us with any questions.
