Now in it's third year, Shiba Prom was held on Saturday, June 28, 2014. The 8 hour online event featured a chat room, DJs, contests, voting for a Prom King and Queen, and surprises all during the day.
This year Shiba Prom hit unprecedented new growth with over $42,000 raised in net proceeds! The Shiba and animal rescues who benefit from the Prom each sponsored a gift basket and all groups shared equally in the general funds raised from donations and registration for Prom. The rescues participating this year were:
Animal Guardian Network (www.animalguardiannetwork.org)
Colorado Shiba Inu Rescue (www.coloradoshibainurescue.org)
DC Shiba Inu Rescue (www.dcsir.org)
Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue (www.shibarescue.org)

Shiba Prom had just over 285 registered attendees this year who represented a wide range of friends including canines, felines and humans alike. Started by lovers of the Shiba breed, this year Prom focused on an inclusive nature - with great results!
What happens at Prom should stay at Prom, but we do have to say the DJ stylings of David Bowie the dog, DJ “Z-Pack” Zeus Ruper and the Evil Firefox Flygirls were the highlight of the party, along with the occasional surprises they threw out for the party goers.
Prom can't happen without the heart of so many volunteers. Our Board of Directors and Shiba Prom committee want to thank all the amazing people who donated prizes. A full list can be found here: Thank you to our sponsors. And, to all those who purchased tickets, registered for Prom, who attended the "pawty" and contributed to the mayhem and fun - thank you! We cannot do this without you!
