Adoption Process / Adoption Application

Here’s what to expect from Shiba Rescue of NJ

You will be required to fill out an application form, provide information about yourself, your family, provide at least one references and a reference from your veterinarian (if you currently have a pet). You will also be asked to tell us what kind of temperament a dog should have to fit in your home or if you have your eye on one already, you would include the pet’s name on your application form to adopt. Once your application form has been reviewed and your references checked, a home check will need to be completed. The Rescue will now try to find you the best possible match. If you are the successful applicant for the pet, you are then welcome to come and meet the dog. You are not obligated to adopt should you determine the fit is not correct, however we must go through this process prior to meeting the dog. Please note that our adoption applicants are carefully screened for suitability and compatibility as well as criteria related to care and commitment. We do reserve the right to deny an adoption applicant. The final step in the process is to pay the adoption donation which range from $150 to $300 and sign the adoption contract.

Note: We do not have a shelter Shiba Rescue of New Jersey is a foster-based rescue and we do not operate a shelter. We do not have viewing hours as each pet is in a private home.
