Welcome to SIRF

Our Mission Statement

Shiba Inu Rescue of Florida (SIRF) is dedicated to the welfare of companion Shiba Inu and Shiba mixes in Florida (and beyond, as feasible). We rescue and find loving homes for homeless Shiba Inu. All dogs will be spayed/neutered and up-to-date on all preventatives and medical care before adoption. In addition to rescue, we assist Shiba Inu owners with training and with medical care for their dogs, in order to help them avoid rehoming loved family members. We also educate the public with regard to the importance of spay/neuter and appropriate training for companion dogs. We are an all volunteer group and operate fully on donations from our supporters.

About Shiba Inu Rescue of Florida

Started in June 2012, SIRF is a Shiba Inu rescue group located in Florida. Our goal is connecting potential adopters with the perfect Shiba companion giving the dog a forever home and the adopter a wonderful addition to their family. We are also working towards having fosters in all regions of Florida to help with any Shibas in need throughout the state. We are all volunteers and work on rescue from our homes. Many of us also have a rescue foster or two to care for as well as our own dogs and cats! We do this while working full time jobs! It’s all about saving neglected and abandoned Shibas, one dog at a time!

If you are able to foster and would like to help please click through to our forms page to apply. We will contact you and go over your application as well as set up a home visit and then you will be on your way to fostering! If you are from another area of the country please feel free to fill out the foster form and we will forward it on to the rescue closest to your area.
