Construction and support of Newberg Animal Shelter

Dec 12, 2011

Building permits to be completed by Dec 15

Building permits were filed immediately after the Newberg City Council approved a resolution to contribute to phase one of the construction project, to build the 'core' of the new animal shelter.   The permits are expected to be finalized by December 15th and the construction can begin whenever the weather permits.    The completed 'core' of the building will include the walls, roof, concrete floors and basic plumbing and electrical needs.   This will allow Newberg Animal Shelter Friends the opportunity to construct the kennels, complete the heating, cooling and medical examine rooms from donations of materials, labor, grants and donations, in order to complete the building in additional phases.

The new shelter will be built in phases and the first phase is the 'core'.   The 2nd phase will be the dog and cat kennels inorder to move them from the old to the new shelter, where they'll be more comfortable and more volunteers can work.

We're hoping construction can begin during the winter months.   The old shelter's roof is patched with blue tarps and hopefully will hold-up through the winter.  

Thanks for your continuing support for this project, we are moving forward as quickly as possible.
