Eight Shiba Inu dogs were recently put up for adoption in Singapore. 

Voices For Animal (VFA), a registered society that actively rescues animals and rehomes it, put up the announcement for the adoption drive on its Facebook page on Apr 9. 

The dogs are all estimated to be at least six years old and above.

Those interested in adopting any of the eight dogs can email Derrick Tan, who runs VFA, and answer the 30 questions posed on the Facebook post. These questions ask about the interested adopter’s personal life, such as his or her current job and family background, as well as experiences with handling dogs. 

There are also other requirements to meet – such as paying a $300 adoption fee.

The Facebook post also added that those interested in adopting these dogs should also send in an introduction of their family background. The organisation has also made clear that those who email them without any introduction will not be entertained. 

Once applicants are shortlisted, they will have to meet Derrick for a face-to-face interview. 

However, do note that the Shiba Inu dogs are not HDB approved.
