NYC Shiba Rescue (NYCSR) is an all volunteer group dedicated to contributing to the quality of life of Shiba Inus 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 Inus 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.
Our young little fox, Kitsune, has finally been adopted! It is no surprise to us that he found his match so quickly! This little pup has a big heart and a lot to learn. We look forward to seeing him grow into a brave, handsome dog with his new family.
Lots of love young shiba, we look forward to hearing more about your future adventures.
Do you think pink is the right color for me?
Everyone say hi to Opal! She is a curious cream Shiba puppy with lots of wriggly love to give. Hold onto her tight when you pick her up because if you don’t she’ll wriggle her way right into your heart (if she hasn’t already)! She is approximately 15 lbs and is still awaiting her initial veterinary visit to make sure she is up to date with all her shots and healthy.
Opal is as sweet as they come and gets so excited when she sees other dogs during walks that she will bark and jump towards them. Her interactions with them are limited but her foster family reports that they have all been positive. Opal will approach any new situation without fear and her curious nature sometimes lands her in trouble! Not to fear, her cuteness helps her get out of the trouble she finds herself in!
It’s important for any puppy to get the right amount of exercise or they really start to find some trouble. I’ve personally lost many rolls of toilet paper with my own Shibas who were restless. Opal is lucky that her foster family is very aware of this and gives her the whole entire house to run herself silly in. She loves all her toys but if Opal was to pick a favorite, it would simply be a tennis ball to play fetch with. Opal has shown a high level of comprehension towards learning new commands and needs a family who are firm and loving that will take the time to train her as she grows into her adult self.
Opal has already found that family that will give her the forever home that she has always dreamt of. We are no longer accepting applications for Opal as she is adoption pending but our rescue has plenty of other cute Shibas awaiting adoption. Please take a look at their bios if you are interested in a Shiba like Opal!
Angel is a 14 year old Shiba/Chihuahua mix who was surrendered to the Manhattan AC&C. Her eyes are a bit cloudy and she may have a little hearing loss, so, as you can imagine, she was very nervous and upset at AC&C.
Angel truly lives up to her name… She is so sweet and even gave one of her transporters a kiss yesterday. She seems to do well with other dogs and cats too.

Thanks for the crate, Max!
Why won’t she play, mom??
She immediately claimed her foster brother, Max’s, crate and nice soft bed as her own. Max totally loves her already, but he can’t figure out why she won’t run the Shiba 500 with him!
Angel will be a very easy dog for her new family to love. If you’re interested in being that family, please check out our adoption procedures and submit an application.
