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.


Here’s Takashi!

This cute boy is Takashi, a stray who found himself at the Manhattan AC&C. He was listed as 4 yrs old, but may be younger. He is sweet and loved being petted so much that when evaluated he almost fell over as he leaned in for more pets! He has had some training, knowing commands and hand signals. It also appears he is crate trained, We can’t wait to see more of this adorable boy!
