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.

Shelter Continuing to Improve

We are hoping to be ‘home for the holidays’ this December.  Thanks to our donors, the north kennels now have gates and as soon as the guillotine doors are installed, the shelter will house between 16 to 30 dogs. With double the kennels and dogs, the perimeter fencing is a top priority for the health and safety of the animals.

We hope to have homes for all adoptable animals by the end of the year. It’s wintertime and pets should have a nice warm home environment.

Please consider our local animal shelter project when thinking of charities this year-end. Even though the dogs and cats are housed in the building, there’s a long list of interior jobs that need to be done to finish the building, for safety and health of the animals and to enable volunteers to do their work.

Thank you for your continued support of the Newberg Animal Shelter,

New shelter interior still under construction

Progress on finishing the interior is underway, but progressing slowly.  There are several safety features that must be finished, prior to opening to the public.   There are several fundraisers planned to assist in accomplishing the following:

Install outer fencing
Install several interior safety gates
Install gates in north dog kennels
Install sinks in laundry and cat rooms
Install lobby reception desk and finish work
Train additional volunteers

A “soft opening” is planned once the above has been accomplished.  The public needs a safe place to meet dogs and cats without the fear of getting hurt.  The volunteers need a safe place to train, clean and care for the animals. 

Your contributions have been instrumental toward building a fully operational shelter.

Thank You for your support.
