First of Its Kind Event Brings Online Shiba Inu Community Together for Fun and Fundraising, June 23 from Noon to Midnight EDT
There are a variety of reasons why Shiba Inus end up in animal shelters. Some are lost. Other are abandoned. Some are auctioned-off after puppy mills decide they are no longer profitable breeder animals. All of these Shiba Inus need help, and thanks to shiba rescue organizations, these dogs have a chance at a new life in a loving forever home.
Every shiba that is rescued requires food, toys and beds. They often need veterinary care, surgeries and medication. The costs associated with each rescue can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars.

The Shiba Prom Committee is a group of Shiba Inu owners and enthusiasts who believe shiba parents and friends can come together to have fun and help raise funds for Shiba Inu rescue organizations everywhere.
This all-volunteer group plans the events, but does not have any direct involvement in the collection and administration of funds. The Prom Committee selects several different organizations to highlight as beneficiaries for each event it organizes, and provides the community with direct links to donate the organization of choice.
