Volunteer Shelter in Operation

We hope you are having a great summer! 

It's been a warm summer in the shelter without air conditioning and ventilation, but we've had plenty of fans going. 

As stated in our last report,  as of July 1st, the City of Newberg has eliminate the Animal Control Program from the city budget.  This has been a hard reality to face for the City and for NASF.  The Animal Control officer has been the director and mentor for the shelter volunteers.   To continue utilizing the new building and provide animal services, volunteers will continue to operate the shelter.   Thankfully, the Animal Control Officer is volunteering and guiding us through the transition to become a fully functional ALL volunteer operated animal shelter. 

This past month, NASF and the City of Newberg have been working on the lease contract.  We need to lease the City Shelter in order to 'operate' the shelter without City involvement.   This is a big undertaking.   We are training new volunteers and creating the ground work to be ready for the signing and completion of the contract.   Until the contract is signed, the volunteers are working together to continue with personal surrenders, holding strays and doing adoptions.   It's important to continue to care for the animals while undergoing this operational transition. 

Please refer to the shelter website for the latest news, operational hours and adoptable pets from the Newberg Animal Shelter.

Please continue to support the shelter during this transition period.   The services provided by the shelter is important to the City of Newberg, Dundee and by the County.   It is our goal to insure many of these services are still available and still provide care of our local animals. 

Thank You!

Thank you Global Giving Donors!  

A new spring newsletter is available from the NASF website.   The front page shows pictures of the current work being done at the shelter:   http://www.newberganimalshelterfriends.org/newsletter_spring_2014_final.pdf

It's spring and improvements are being made inside and out.   Some landscaping has been started, the ordered pavers should be delivered soon and hopefully installed quickly.  The north dog kennels are almost finished.

New Year and New Enthusiasm

New Shelter Summer 2013
New Shelter Summer 2013

We've had a great 2013 and your donations were very much appreciated.   In March of 2013, the animals were moved from the old shelter to the new shelter.   The new shelter wasn't fully operational at that time,  but the animals needed to be moved from the unmaintained old building.  Since then, laundry equipment, refrigerator, grooming supplies and cabintary have been installed.   The lobby now has a reception desk.   Slowly, the new shelter is evolving into a fully operational service to the community.

The shelter opened the front doors to the public for 3 Saturdays in December.  It was a trial period for the volunteers, animals and public.  We were very pleased with the number of cats and dogs adopted and the number of visitors.   We are more anxious now, to get the building completed and fully functional. 

There's outdoor fencing, dog and cat kennels to complete, a grooming room that needs a tub and other equipment needed to complete the shelter.    Please visit the shelter and see for yourself, that progress has been made and we will continue to move forward as quickly as funding will allow.  

Thank you again for making 2013 a positive move for our animals.
