COVID-19 Protocol

With the current concerns about COVID-19, Newberg Animal Shelter will be adjusting procedures and protocols for the protection of customers and staff.  Sanitization is always a high priority, and currently we are going above and beyond our normal protocols to ensure “high-touch” areas are sanitized multiple times each day, per the recommendation of the CDC with an EPA approved disinfectant.  We are monitoring public health recommendations closely and will make adjustments as necessary.

We are open for adoptions by appointment only.  This will allow staff to sanitize between each customer.  If you see a pet you are interested in, please follow the inquiry instructions on that pets profile.

Due to limited staffing, limited appointments, and the high volume of applications we are receiving right now, we may not be able to schedule appointments for all applicants.

Keep an eye on the website.  If the pet you have applied for are no longer available, they have been adopted by another applicant.  Please do not consider this a rejection of your application, as we receive a high volume of applications on every pet.  If you see another pet you are interested in meeting, please submit a new application.

Thank you for your patience.

While we look forward to meeting you and helping you find your new best friend.  If you are exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness, have come in contact with a person exhibiting these symptoms, or if you are at higher risk, please stay home and avoid contact with other people.

At this time, viewing will be limited to only people we have called in for adoption appointments.  We apologize for this inconvenience and welcome you to come back to visit the animals when the quarantine has been lifted. 

If you have a donation for the shelter, it can be left in the bin outside the front door.

We thank you for your continued support and ongoing patience through this health crisis.
