Who We Are

Shiba Rescue GTA is a rescue organization based in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, Canada. This non-profit organization was started in the spring of 2006 to help any Shiba Inu in need. Shiba Rescue GTA does not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes.

Our goal is to facilitate Shiba rescue by:
  1. Providing a central point of contact for shelters and for those seeking help in re-homing their Shiba Inu.
  2. Co-ordinate fundraising and fund distribution to aid Shiba rescue and adoption.
  3. Providing information to educate the general public about Shiba Inu and Shiba Inu rescue.
  4. Facilitating the adoption of any Shiba Inu in need.

Adoption Process

Here's what to expect from Shiba Rescue GTA.
You will be required to fill out an application form, provide information about yourself, your family, provide at least two references and a reference from your veterinarian (if you currently have a pet). Applications are available on our website of : ! 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 ($300) and sign the adoption contract.

Please send us an email request for an adoption application if you are interested in adding a shiba to your family. Email your completed adoption application to

Note: We do not have a shelter

Shiba Rescue GTA 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.
