Shiba Inus are available for adoption through specialist local services such as Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue. They may also be on general pet adoption sites such as Pet Finder. It's important to always check references for the rescue to ensure the dogs are healthy and temperament tested.
Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue is an organization based in Chicago to find Shiba Inus to adopt in the Midwest. Shiba inus adopted through this service are neutered, up-to-date on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped. To find a dog through this service, it is necessary to schedule a home visit. The rescue service will then help match the adopter with a dog and arrange a meet and greet.
NYC Shiba Rescue is another local service that provides Shiba Inus for adoption that have been rescued from dangerous situations and shelters. This service can supply dogs to adopters in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
Pet Finder is a pet adoption site that lists dogs by breed. To find a Shiba Inu through this site, search for Shiba Inu in the search facility and enter a location. This will bring up profiles of available dogs by location. These profiles include a photo and personality information, which is helpful to evaluate the dogs before applying to adopt.
