Because we love our Shiba Inus, support reputable local breeders, and give our heart and soul to rescue to make a HUGE difference! We have created this group for NW Shibas4Life Rescue to support all Northwest Shiba Inu owners through activities and resources!
WHO WE ARE
Shibas4Life was founded in 1999 and in 2009 we became NW Shibas4Life Rescue, a recognized non-profit 501(c)(3) in Oregon. We partner with our local Evergreen Shiba Club, National Shiba Club of America, and National recognized Shiba Inu Rescues across the Unites States. We host Meet Ups in our two acre dog park in the country at least about six times a year and includes our Annual Shiba Picnic! Shibas from around the Northwest attend!
NW Shibas4Life Rescue (NWSR) is an all volunteer organization dedicated to saving abandoned, neglected and abused Shiba Inus in the Northwest. Our first priority is in-taking critical care dogs that may have illnesses that can take their life if left untreated and dogs at risk of being euthanized. We reach out to Oregon, Washington, Northern California, Idaho, and Montana. Our dogs come from a variety of sources. We pull dogs from Humane Societies and shelters that do not re-home primitive breeds as well. We work with owner surrenders that do not research the breed in detail and are attracted to the looks but do not match the breed’s needs. We in-take from owners who have had a life changing event that prevents them from keeping their dog. We assist owners finding resources to keep their dog. The difference between us and a shelter environment is once we evaluate each dog for temperament, social skills, and a full Veterinarian work up, each dog is in a foster home with other dogs, possibly cats, and older children. We treat each foster as one of our very own loved Shibas until adoption. Our motto is, “Our Shibas, Our Passion”. Our Shibas need us and our passion is to educate the public on our breed and reduce pet population.
We are always looking for volunteers for foster homes, fundraising events, transporting, and clerical work in rescue!
