Scouting out homes for the "Little Brushwood Dog"
Shiba Scout Rescue is a non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to the rescue, training and rehoming of Shiba Inus and Shiba Inu mixes in Colorado. We do not have a shelter or facility that can be visited by the public. Rather, all of our dogs are taken care of in Foster Homes. We are primarily located in Northern Colorado, however we do have Foster Homes throughout the Denver metro area.
We have received our rescue license under PACFA (Pet Animal Care Facilities Act) and are listed as a non-profit through the Colorado Secretary of State. We are also now registered as a 501c(3) non profit through the IRS.
Shiba Scout Rescue would like to dedicate the organization and its efforts to
Domicinda Hill and her Shiba, Kaya
Her love of the breed opened the eyes and hearts of many.
"If you want a dog who loves you unconditionally, who never has a bad day, who always has a smile on his face, and lives to please you...get a lab, golden retriever, boxer, etc.
If you want a dog with fire in his heart, spirit in his soul, a twinkle in his eye and a mind that will keep you on your toes...get a Shiba!"
"Owning a Shiba Inu is an adventure in itself."--Annonymous
Shiba Scout needs your help!
This adorable sesame girl came to us last night after a serious injury completely dislocated her right hip. Through no fault of her own, this poor girl had been through a number of homes in the past few weeks. She ended up with a very nice man, who unfortunately did not have the funds for the surgical repair she so desperately needs. Rather than euthanize this tiny, little one and half year old, he called us.
She is the SWEETEST little thing ever! Despite being in tremendous pain, she is a total lover. When the orthopedic surgeon had to examine her, she turned around, obviously in some discomfort, and gave the doctor a big ol’ kiss.
This little angel (whose name we haven’t agreed upon yet) needs to have extensive surgery to repair her hip. Even with a generous rescue discount, we are anticipating the costs of surgery, medication and rehabilitation to be between $3000 and $4000. If you haven’t spent all your funds on Shibamas gifts yet, please consider donating to her vet care. We cannot wait to see how even more wonderful she will be when she isn’t in pain, standing on three legs anymore.

Every dog adopted out receives:
All potential owners must agree to at least one home-visit prior to adoption and agrees to complete all training recommended for the Shiba Inu that is adopted from the rescue.
Kenji is the very handsome 5 year old Red Shiba Inu that was adopted in the fall of 2010 after being surrendered by his owner. Shiba Inus are known for looking like a fox based on this popular rustic red coloring. There are 4 main Shiba Inu colors: Red, Sesame (red coloring with black tipped hairs evenly throughout the body), Black and Tan, and Cream.
