WHAT IS A BARKENTINE?
Shiba Prom hosts an annual Valentine's Day fundraiser selling Barkentines. A Barkentine is a Valentine that Shibas send to their sweethearts such as their best furiend at doggie daycare, their pawrents, their foster family, or anyshibabody they want.
Shiba Prom offers two styles of Barkentines: one that can be customized with a special message & one that has a standard message. Barkentines are electronic Valentines that can be emailed to the recipient or posted on their social media.
The Barkentine style/theme may vary each year.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Custom Barkentines are a $5 donation each. Standard is a $2 donation each.
WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO?
All Shiba Prom fundraising activites that collect dollars are actually collecting donations. These funds can be used to distribute financial grants to Shiba Inu rescues throughout the United States. Grants help rescue Shibas receive essential care & treatment. We are a nonprofit organization run by volunteers who do not receive salaries.
Because we are a 501(c)(3) organization, your donation is tax deductible.
