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 - in addition to providing a cute PFP! Our shibe fam consists of 5,555 shibes, with over 150 unique traits. Our shibes are your keys to voting for our regularly-occurring donations. Percentage of all ongoing royalties will be donated via community-nominated, and DAO-voted, monthly distributions.* We like to think of our collection as a PFP collection with a pawrpose (PFPWP)
To see our full donation history, please visit our Discord and view our Charity-Donations channel!
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 to our monthly donation rounds as a nomination upon vetting.
How Do I Adopt a Shiba?
Please head over to OpenSea, LooksRare, Nifty Gateway, or another verified listing website of ours!
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 :)
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.*
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.
Alex is our Project Lead in charge of strategy, smart contract development, web development, partnerships, marketing, hiring, and roadmap fulfilment. He has been in the digital content and marketing industry for over 5 years, primarily for one of the largest automotive companies in Canada.
Janet is our Artist. Without her, our Shibas wouldn't be able to help non-profits around the world. She's been in the digital art industry for over 2 years, and in the traditional art space for many more. She runs an e-commerce store featuring similarly cute animals.
Msnellen is our Community Manager Shibe, and a long-time member of our community. She embodies the wholesome, kind, and loving nature of our community. Give her a bork in our Discord!
Kylime is our first mod, and a valued and loved member of the Shiba Shelter team! She loves Spongebob and the Shiba community, and we love her too. Her signature trait was a bubble fur, an inferential reference to Bubble Buddy.
DYO is our second mod, and a very early member of our community. He's helped shape the community as it is today, through his hard work and wholesomeness, and we love him for it. His signature trait is a nod to his time in the medical field in the Philippines.
Nels is our third mod, and another loved member of the team! Nels loves his Pepper, and his partner. He's a huge foodie, tech, and finance shibe. His signature trait is a nod to his floofer, Pepper, who he deems a Princess, hence Princess Pepper!
Mojitos is our latest mod, and one heckin' good one at that! He hails from the UK and loves F1, racing, and more.
Terrance is one of our watchdog/mod shibes. He's been in the digital marketing and social media space for over 3 years.
Lindsay is Alex's life partner, and lends an amazing helping hand to the project 💖

*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, but rather is an indication of our intent to donate funds to their shelters.
