NYC Shiba Rescue (NYCSR) is an all volunteer group dedicated to contributing to the quality of life of Shiba Inu in and around the New York City metropolitan area (NY, NJ, PA, and CT primarily). To that end, NYCSR actively works to rescue Shiba Inu and Shiba Inu mixed breed dogs from dangerous environments and shelters in order to find them loving, permanent homes. We will, among other things, foster and evaluate Shiba Inu in order to prepare them for adoption and seek out proper adoptive homes for the dogs. NYCSR also promotes responsible dog ownership by educating the public in the selection, care and training of dogs.


Meet Ozzy



Ozzy was transported from Brooklyn AC&C to his foster home this past Sunday. Upon first meeting Ozzy, he was shy and nervous but after comfortable he enjoyed being petted. Ozzy does not like dogs who approach him too quickly and may be best as the only dog in the home.

We will post more as he settles in and his foster gets to know him better.
