Meet your "Fur-end"

Are you ready for a Shiba Inu?

Your New "Fur-End" Shiba

The Rehoming Process

The most common question we get is: “do you have a Shiba Inu for sale?!”

The answer is a ‘yes’ and a ‘no’.

We do our best to have Shiba Inu for sale or adoption year-round,
but the rehoming process involves these following steps
to ensure that the best families get placed with our lovely Shiba Inus. 

The second most common question we get is: “are you guys a Shiba Inu rescue?”

The answer is again a ‘yes’ and a ‘no’! 

We have a small, donation-funded Shiba Inu rescue program,
where Shiba Inus in need of rehabilitation and training are taken care of
until they are ready to go to a new home. If you are interested in a Shiba Inu rescue,
please feel free to contact us or read more about our Shiba Inu rescue program.

Initial Interest Form

How do I get started?

Fill out an interest form on our website with your information and a staff member will get back to you shortly to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview is the preliminary step to becoming placed on the wait-list and will cover general eligibility questions such as residence type and dog rearing experience.

One of our staff members will reach you by email or message to schedule a phone interview with you and your family. The phone interview will be about 15 minutes long.

Don’t be nervous about the interview! It’s a casual time where we get to know more about your family, and you get to ask questions about the rehoming process.

Once your family has been approved to be on the waitlist to re-home a Shiba Inu, there are two waitlists that you can choose from:

1) Priority wait-list: Requires a $100 deposit, for families who are certain and ready to rehome ASAP

2) Contact wait-list: No deposit required, for families who are interested in staying in touch about Shiba Inus that are available after all priority wait-listed families have been contacted.

Once we find your perfect puppy and the pup is ready to be visited, we will contact you to arrange an initial video visit or an in-person visit.

Prior to the visit, we will send details about the pup (age, gender, color, personality, photos, parentage). Upon request, secondary visits can be scheduled.

After the visit, you will discuss with our staff if you’d like to confirm to rehome the pup, and receive the necessary documents and information.

Schedule a final meeting with our staff to pick up the pup and bring them to their new fur-ever home!

Prior to the final visit, ask us for our homecoming guide to know what to prepare for your home, and tips to keep in mind about raising a new puppy.

This is when we will exchange the important things: the puppy’s registration paper, vaccination record, microchip information (if applicable), rehoming agreement, and the rehoming fee.

Keep us updated!

We love hearing from families and how the Shibas are doing in adjusting to their new homes and what their new names are.

If you have an Instagram or YouTube account for your new pup, feel free to share and you might find your cutie featured on our website!

What is the Shiba Inu Cost or Shiba Inu Price? 

On average, the Shiba Inu price from a reputable breeder or organization
is between $1,750 to $2,500, depending on availability.

*A Note from NorCal Shiba Regarding the Rehoming Fee: 

Due to increase in demand as well as increases in fees for transportation, veterinarian costs, and food & crucial supplies,
we unfortunately have had to raise our rehoming fee from our previous Shiba Inu price. 
We understand that financial cost can be a difficulty in preparing your family for a new Shiba Inu
we ask for your understanding as the rehoming fee goes into offsetting costs for transporting the puppies in case of 
out of state pups, small stipends for food, supplies, and vet checks that we provide to foster homes, and 
increases in overall costs for pet food and supplies. If you have any questions about the rehoming process or fee,
please feel to reach out at
