Summary

The old shelter was a 20 X 20 shed and no longer maintainable. A new larger facility was built in 2012 and the animals moved to the new shelter in March of 2013, even though the interior and exterior are not fully completed. The building is housing the animals, but we have no ventilation for the cats and no air conditioning in the building. There's more to do, but the animals are in a more comfortable environment.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The old shelter can house about 7 dogs and a few cats. With the population growth of Newberg, we need more kennel space. Currently cats and dogs are in the same room, which causes animal stress. It is not large enough for volunteers to work with the animals and make them more adoptable. It's too small and in too poor condition to be open to the public. There are no public hours of operation for the community to view adoptable pets.

How will this project solve this problem?

A new larger facility will have a medical examination room, grooming facilities, kennels with inside and outside runs. A heated floor and air conditioning will keep the temperature comfortable for the animals. Volunteers will have room to work.

Potential Long Term Impact

If this facility is not available, the local community will need to use the County or State facilities, which are already over burdened. Local lost pets will not be given a second chance.
