This FAQ page was setup to provide information after the City of Newberg announced that the Newberg-Dundee Animal Control Program was cut on 7-1-2014.
What is going to happen to the shelter now that there is no longer an animal control program in Newberg?
The shelter building will continue to operate as an animal shelter. Newberg Animal Shelter Friends and the shelter volunteers will be operating the shelter. They are developing new processes and procedures to operate the shelter by all volunteers. Please be patient with them in this transition.
Animal Control enforcement will now be serviced by Yamhill County Dog Control.
Who are Newberg Animal Shelter Friends?
NASF is the 501c3 fundraising organization that has been raising money for over a decade for the construction of our new shelter building. We moved into the new building one year ago but the interior is still not complete. NASF is continuing to raise funds to finish construction as well as become the nonprofit group that will operate the shelter.
What do I do if I find a stray dog in Newberg or Dundee?
***We are still working on an arrangement with Yamhill County Dog Control to keep local strays in the area for reuniting them with their families faster.
For now, we will take-in stray (found) dogs from the Newberg-Dundee area and we will notify Yamhill County Dog Control that we have the dog in case their family looks for them there.
Please come to the shelter before noon to drop off a stray (found) dog on-site or call 503-554-9285 for an appointment.
