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!
