Is a Nevada Non-Profit Corporation dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of the Shiba Inu.  NNSR was founded by Jack Owens and Vic Rogers in 2002 and over the years we have worked with several hundred Shiba Inus and have provided surgeries, medical treatment, behavioral therapy and most importantly love and safety.  Shiba Inus have come to us from all over the United States and have been placed in carefully selected homes with new families.  In 2008 we opened A Doggies Dream in Reno NV to help with housing the rescued Shibas, and quite honestly, to keep Jack from bringing them home and keeping them.  Our rescued Shibas have ranged in age from 8 weeks old to 15 years old and everywhere in between.  Our commitment to the Shiba Inu is that once we have accepted them in Rescue they are ours for life and we do not euthanize unless there is no other option medically or behaviorally. 

Over the years we have added new members to our team as we have expanded to meet the needs of the Shiba Inus.
