Joan Austin 1:1 Matching Fund Campaign

February 25, 2016

We have exciting news to share! 



(Oregon State University Press)

In the September 30th edition of the Newberg Graphic, Newberg Animal Shelter was a top story. Due to lack of sufficient funds, the shelter is operating without a much needed HVAC system. The article described that during our extreme summer heat waves, temperatures inside the shelter reached over 100º F. With no air conditioning system, volunteers resorted to making homemade air conditioners to protect the cats and kittens from the sweltering temperatures in the cat rooms.

Ken Austin, Newberg businessman and founder of A-Dec, was touched when he read about the situation at the shelter. He informed Newberg Animal Shelter that he will match, dollar for dollar, up to $15,000 in funds raised for an HVAC system. With $15,000 in donations, and a matching $15,000 donated by Ken Austin, the shelter will have the $30,000 necessary to purchase and install a shelter grade HVAC system. In addition to appealing to the public for donations, KenAustin is challenging local businesses to donate $1,000 each towards this worthy cause.

The fundraising campaign officially kicks off on February 20, 2016. In honor of Ken Austin’s late wife Joan, the campaign will be called the Joan Austin 1:1 Matching Funds Campaign. Joan Austin was a lifelong animal lover and any funds raised during the campaign, not needed for the HVAC, will be used to establish the Joan Austin Angel Fund. This permanent fund will be used to provide for the safety and care of shelter pets, with priorities being medical care, spaying and neutering, and emergency situations.

The board of directors, volunteers, and staff of Newberg Animal Shelter are very excited about this wonderful opportunity. Installation of an HVAC system will make the shelter more comfortable for the animals and will increase the shelter’s capacity, allowing more pets to be housed as they await adoption. Newberg Animal Shelter is looking forward to completion of a successful fundraising campaign, with help from the generous matching donation provided by Ken Austin.

If you or your business are interested in contributing towards this matching funds campaign, please contact Newberg Animal Shelter by calling 503-554-9285 emailing, delivering your donation directly to: Newberg Animal Shelter, 1591 S. Sandoz Road, Newberg, OR or mailing your donation to: 901 Brutscher St., Ste D. PMB 107, Newberg, OR 97132. Learn more at
