There are many reasons why a dog ends up in rescue. Sometimes they were purchased impulsively by people who did not understand the temperament of the breed. Sometimes lifestyle changes such as job loss or divorce dictate giving up a pet. Other dogs lose their homes when their owners become too sick or elderly to provide them with necessary care. Still others are relinquished by owners who just no longer want them.
If you currently are the owner of a Shiba Inu that needs to be rehomed, we request that you contact our rescue via our email contact information and attach the surrender profile along with your request.
Each Shiba Surrender is evaluated on dog by dog basis. As foster space is limited and we do not operate a shelter, SRGTA prioritizes its rescues based on adoptability and personal crisis.
