This year Shiba Prom is throwing the Cinco de Mayo themed pawty of the year on Saturday, May 6th from 3pm - 7pm Eastern Time (Noon - 4pm Pacific Time). DJ Zeus will be spinning his best Shiba tunes, and Barktender Prince Zuko will keep everyone hydrated and in the pawty spirit. He promised 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 he will announce a few bonus prizes this year 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.

Raffle Baskets are Back!
Thank you to all our amazing donors! Please browse the site and buy your raffle tickets. We have baskets for the Shibas, baskets for the hoomans, and even some baskets for meowies! We have foxy leggings, books and shirts, collars and toys, an animal behavior and psychology course, and much more - check them all out! Tickets are on sale until 11:59pm Eastern time (9:59pm Pacific time) on May 6th, 2017. The drawing will be held May 7th, 2017.
Contests are open to all breeds. All entries are free, and votes are only $1 each. Besides bragging rights, the top fundraiser in each category (winners) will receive a fabulous prize! We have books straight from Japan (yes, this means they are in Japanese). They are all different, but all are 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 to the overall category winners, each photo that raises at least $75 will receive a 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 of each 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 take those pictures and SUBMIT!
Entries are accepted until 12:00am Eastern time on May 3rd and voting is open until 6:30pm Eastern time (3:30pm Pacific time) on May 6th. Once you enter, you have a URL you can use to encourage voters! Add your entry or start voting now!
