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.

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!

Newberg Animal Shelter - New Years Update

It's a new year and we are pleased with the progress of the building construction. The kennels and floor of the new shelter are in the process of having epoxy applied. The floor heat is now working, thanks to the hours of labor donated by DP Plumbing.

As soon as the epoxy is cured, measurements will be taken for kennel gates. There are a few other things that need to be done before the animals can be moved from the old shelter to the new one. Our first priority are the necessities needed in order to 'house' the animals. With the floor heat now working and the kennels finished, the animals should be able to be moved. Our first consideration is keeping the animals comfortable and healthy.

Thank you for your past donation, this has helped us get on the track to complete this project. There are many rooms to finish and equipment to purchase, but the animals will be moved soon, into a dry comfortable new building, thanks to your donation.

Kennel Construction Underway

Newberg Animal Shelter Friends are working with the City of Newberg to finish the dog and cat kennel areas before November 1st, when the weather turns more severe.    The old shelter roof is in need of repair and won't make it through another winter without major repairs.   

Habitat for Humanity and the Newberg City Councilmen worked together last week, to build the interior wall frames.  This really helps get the work done and becomes a great community effort. 

The dog kennels will be built out of cinderblocks with chain-link gates and materials will be delivered on Octoboer 2nd.
It will take a few weeks to complete all 24 kennels (includes Intake and Quaratine kennels).  

NASF is working on a couple of grants, hoping to be able to pay for the kennel gates and the garage door openers.   We need 4 commerical grade garage door openers as soon as possible.  

If you're interested in following the construction steps, check out the Construction blogsite link. 
We are trying to enter blog data of our needs and the dates we need it.   Please follow our progress.

Thank you for support the Newberg Animal Shelter.   There are many good things happening right now!
