OMD! Spring is finally here, and we have all waited far too long for the sun to shine. All of the Shibas are getting to play outside more and terrorize their neighborhoods, and we’re hearing that they are ready to break out some dancing!
This year, Shiba Prom is throwing the Cinco de Mayo–themed “Pawty” of the year on Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 3pm–7pm Eastern Time (Noon–4pm Pacific Time). DJ Zeus will spin his best Shiba tunes, and Barktender Prince Zuko will keep everyone hydrated and in the Pawty spirit. Zuko promises to pour his signature bacon and cheese barktini, but he and DJ Zeus always have tricks in their little paws. DJ Zeus received some special donations this year, so look forward to a few bonus prizes during the Pawty. Bring your best Shiba Scream and show him that you can be the belle of the ball!
Tickets for the big event are on sale now. Just grab your pawrents’ kibble card and go to http://www.shibaprom.org/pawty.html!
If you can’t make it the day of the pawty, don’t worry! We have several other ways to be a big part of the fun. Just scroll down and choose your favorites.

Contests are open to all dog breeds. It’s free to enter, and votes are only $1 each. Besides bragging rights, the winner (top fundraiser) in each category will receive a fabulous prize! We have books straight from Japan (yes, this means they are in Japanese). They are all different, but filled with full-color pictures of Shibas. You won’t find these in the United States! We also have autographed copies of the coveted “Once You Own a Shiba… Everything Else is Just a Dog” by the extremely talented Ericka Steele, who is also the artist that has created our Shiba Prom logos for the past two Shiba Prom events.
In addition, each photo that raises at least $75 will receive a Shiba decal or patch as a thank-you gift. Only one thank-you gift will be awarded per photo. There are several choices of decal and patch designs, but supplies are limited — so get your supporters to vote early to have the best selection! Most importantly, your submission and votes help us to fulfill our motto of “Shibas Helping Shibas: Having Fun Raising Funds”! So get out there and SUBMIT your photos!
