    Hi Everyone! If you live within driving distance of Chicago, we need you! SIRA is rescuing more than 20 dogs this weekend in a large commercial breeder release. At the last minute, the breeder added more dogs! We need 4 additional foster homes IMMEDIATELY if we are to save these dogs. Please let us know asap if you can help - even with a temporary foster placement. Foster homes should be located within driving distance to Chicago. If you are already approved as a foster home or adoptive home through SIRA, email foster@savingshibas.com. If you are not yet approved, please fill out an application that you can download from our website: www.savingshibas.com.
  • I assume you've contacted the Chicago Shiba Meetup folks...

    Thanks, sukoshi's mom. Yes - we have. Most of the Chicago meetup group are SIRA families. We successfully rescued 21 dogs last Sunday, thanks to everyone who stepped forward. These sweet dogs are now in foster care and adjusting well so far to their big new worlds. The rescue completely depleted our supply of foster homes and these dogs will also need adoptive homes very soon. If you're interested in more information, visit www.savingshibas.com and fill out an adoption or foster home application. Thanks!
