How you can help

Colorado Shiba Inu Rescue is a volunteer-only non-profit organization. We operate on an annual budget of approximately $35K per year.

98% of the funds we raise go directly to veterinary care, training, and rescue supplies. The other 2% are administrative costs like license fees and insurance.

We rely on donations, adoption fees, and passive fundraising programs, like Amazon Smile and King Soopers Community Rewards, for our operating funds.

We do not receive any state/federal funds or grants. We do occasionally apply for, and receive grants from other non-profit animal rescue related organizations, like Shiba Prom and Shiba Inu Rescue Resource of America (SIRRA).

One of the biggest ways you can help us is by spreading the word. Encourage people to adopt, not shop. Pet overpopulation is an uphill battle and it is something we can’t fight alone.  When you meet people who are interested in a Shiba, tell them they are NOT for everyone, share your challenges, direct them to the Shiba 101 document on our website, and encourage them to talk to COSIR or other Shiba owners before getting one!
