Newberg Animal Shelter Friends

Newberg Animal Shelter Friend's mission is to raise funds to build a new City animal shelter in Newberg, Oregon. NASF will continue to raise funds after completion of the new shelter to support existing and/or new educational programs, safe adoptions, medical procedures, and equipment needs. NASF will strive to make all decisions based on safety, comfort and health of the animals in the shelter.

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.

Newberg shelter animals enjoying new facility

New Shelter as of August 2012
New Shelter as of August 2012

Thanks to our donors, the new animal shelter is now housing the dogs and cats.   The animals have been moved from the old shelter to the new shelter.   The new facility has floor heat, washer and dryer for clean laundry and other amenitites.   However, there are many rooms not finished and the building is not open to the public at this time.   The cat room is not completed.   We need cages.   The north dog kennels do not have gates.   The south kennels can house about 8 dogs.   It is expected to take about 6 months to finish the interior and train new volunteers, before opening to the public.  We will need more volunteers to handle the additional pet intake, once the building is complete. 

The City of Newberg and NASF are working together, along with volunteers to completely finish the interior.   Many fundraiser's are planned for spring and summer to cover the costs. 

We are thrilled to have come this far in the project.  Now, we need to tie-up the loose-ends and make this a shelter we can all be proud of.  

Thank you for your long-term support and for following our progress.   The shelter has some great dogs, if you or someone you know are interested in a long-term, satisfying friendship.   Please continue to support us, now and in the future.  We have just begun!
