The Shiba Shelter is a collection of 8,888 randomly generated Shiba NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. We've created Shiba Shelter to provide assistance to real world non-profits focused on finding homes, providing support to, rescuing, and preventing cruelty to dogs around the world.
Our Shibas are your keys to voting for our regularly-occurring donations. 30% of all ongoing royalties will be donated via community-nominated, and DAO-voted, monthly distributions.* 18Ξ to be donated upon full sell out.
We like to think of our collection as a PFP collection with a purpose (PFPWP)

Non-Profits On Current Donation List*
As our team is all local to Vancouver, Canada, we will be desiring that the first donation be made here as we can best engage with their teams!
Do you know of any local dog shelter to you that needs funding help? Please contact them to support adoption of ETH-based donations, and we'll add them ASAP to our monthly donation rounds as a nomination. The above list are currently the only shelters our team were able to find that accepted ETH donation (they must accept ETH donations as we need to prove immutably that our donation went to their team.
Additionally, you can drop the name of the shelter near you in our Discord #charity-ideas chat, and we'll work on our end to try to get their team to adopt ETH donations!
How Do I Adopt a Shiba?
Head over to the adoption page below! Connect with your Metamask, and adopt away. Each shibe is 0.03 ETH, and there is no limit to how many shibes/wallet.
How Do I Join the Community?
Please stay connected with us via our Twitter or Discord. Please keep discussions civilized and wholesome so we don't disturb other Shibas in the Shelter :)
What Charities Will We Support?
The Shiba Shelter initial sales will incorporate a total of Ξ15 donated to non-profits chosen by the community via Twitter or Discord, as well as a 3Ξ donation to a local shelter of our team's choice (likely BC SPCA). These donations will be all made possible from a 100% sold out collection! Monthly donations will be nominated in the community Discord, and voted on via NFT holder DAO votes.*
How Will Monthly Donations Work?
30% of all royalties from our sales will go towards charitable donations at the end of every month after the initial sale of the collection. This will be then distributed to the top 3 shelters chosen via the monthly DAO vote (50%, 30%, and 20%, respectively).*
Each Shiba holder will be entitled to 1 voting power/each Shiba.
What Inspired the Shiba Shelter collection?
The team at Shiba Shelter loves all pets, but most of all: dogs. Having had fostered puppies, and dogs in need, primarily rescues from Mexico brought over to Canada for re-homing, we discovered that shelters are non-profits that are in dire need of financial support. We're also major fans of DeFi, and wanted to combine both passions to somehow facilitate charitable donations to shelters in need.

*Ongoing donations are subject to the longevity of the project, and the demand of the collection in the secondary market. Monthly donations will take place as long as there is at least 1Ξ in the royalty wallet from collected royalties, and may be subject to change in terms of the amount and the distribution percentage to the nominated non-profit(s). There will be a re-assessment of the monthly royalty donation program after 1 year post-launch, which will be put forth to the community of holders. Non-profits on our charitable list may be subject to change, and are no necessarily indications of corporate partnerships (as these often require an upfront cash donation), but rather is an indication of our intent to donate funds to their shelters.
