Foster Home Application

Fostering a Shiba in need is a fantastic way to help the rescue without necessarily having a long term commitment to a certain dog. We need short term foster homes that foster anywhere from overnight to two weeks and also permanent foster homes where the dog is fostered in the same home until they find a permanent home. Of course, if you fall in love with one of your foster dogs, you may apply to adopt him or her!

If you would like to help by volunteering to foster, please complete our foster home application.

Volunteer Application

If you don’t have the space to foster or adopt a dog, but want to help out by evaluating Shibas in need, transporting, helping with paperwork, recruiting, public relations, or lending your skills in any other way, please complete our volunteer application.

If you are interested in adopting, but do not see “the one” for you here, please still fill out the adoption form and when we have an available dog that seems to fit your family we will contact you! (Please do not skip any of the questions on the application as they are all important in helping us match the right dog to your family. A home visit must also be conducted before an adoption can take place.
