Welcome to Shiba Rescue of New Jersey A NJ NON PROFIT

Shiba Rescue of New Jersey (SRNJ) is a small group of dedicated families living in Ocean County NJ who have opened their hearts and homes to neglected, unwanted and displaced Shibas. We are one of only three active Shiba Rescue Organization on the East Coast of the US and have fostered and re-homed over 300 Shibas, Jindos and Shiba mixes over the years. We have close ties to other independent Shiba Rescues across the US and Canada and work with many all breed rescues as well. Our network of experienced rescue people who's goal is to give these once abandoned animals a second chance and adopt them to families that will love and care for them for the rest of their lives. We advocate spaying and neutering of all companion animals to counteract the overpopulation of dogs to end the tragedy of euthanizing healthy, unwanted companion pets.

Our Goals

To facilitate Shiba rescue by:

  • Providing a central point of contact for shelters and for those seeking help in re-homing their Shiba Inu.
  • Provide foster homes as space is available
  • Providing information to educate the general public about Shiba Inu and Shiba Inu rescue.
  • Facilitating the adoption of any Shiba Inu in need.

Thank you for visiting our rescue site and I hope you will consider adopting or fostering a Shiba in need!
