Over the last few months, Shiba Prom has undergone some organizational and operational restructuring. We are very excited to announce the changes and our hopes for more involvement in our PAWESOME Shiba community!
First, we’d like to introduce the current 2015-2016 Board of Directors. The members are the same; however, responsibilities have shifted. The current Board of Directors and Executive Officers are: President and Secretary: Ann Lynch; Vice-President: Eileen Corliss; Treasurer and Legal Counsel: Alisa Gaylon, Member-at-Large: Tina Shakour. Please feel free to go to our ABOUT page on this website to read about each member.
The Board has voted for Shiba Prom to adopt a grant-based platform to be able to award financial support to those in need throughout the whole year via contests, fundraising events and support as well as the annual Shiba Prom. So what does that mean? Shibas in the care of a rescue may be eligible to obtain funding to assist with medical bills and expenses exceeding typical vet care covered by adoption fees or assistance from a rescue organization. The grant system will begin October 1, 2016. The details of the programs, application process and the application may be viewed on the Shiba Prom website on the GRANT page.
In order to keep Shiba Prom sustainable and growing, a solid team of volunteers is needed. Volunteers are currently being recruited for different positions and will continually be recruited as the need arises.
Because of the many shifts and changes over these last few months and to come in the months ahead, this year’s annual Shiba Prom event will be delayed. Please stay tuned for details about upcoming events! We hope to bring more events under our new structure so be sure to like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram using the logos on the top right of this website.
All of us here at Shiba Prom thank you so very much for your continued support and wish you and yours a very Happy Spring! Keep on rescuing and all the PAWMAZING work you do. We are so excited to continue the tradition of having fun raising funds together!!
The Shiba Prom Board of Directors
