Foster Family Perspective:
Thinking about adopting Mushroom? Here are a few things that will help you develop a relationship with her. Mushroom is very shy, but she has gained more confidence around humans. If you let her sniff you before you pet her, then she will trust you more. IF she hisses or growls she is letting you know she is nervous, BUT she will give a soft blink and want your love, so go ahead and let her sniff you and then pet her. Mushroom really likes to hide under things like beds, but for her own good; block these areas while giving her a more reasonable hiding place like under a coffee table. She is not comfortable being held or up on furniture yet, this is something she is still working on! If you are patient and let her learn to better trust humans you will have a lot of fun together, because she is motivated by wet food and does like to play with string toys!”

If you are interested in meeting me, please email Newberg Animal Shelter at with a completed  Adoption Application. We will contact applicants to schedule a meet and greet.

We focus on finding the best match for adoptable animals and are not first-come first-served.

With the current concerns about COVID-19, Newberg Animal Shelter will be adjusting procedures and protocols for the protection of customers and staff.

We are open for adoptions by appointment only.  This will allow staff to sanitize between each customer.

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.

Please submit an application via email or fax including the names of all of the dogs you are interested in meeting.

Keep an eye on the website.  If the dogs you have applied for are no longer available, they have been adopted by another applicant.  If you see another dog you are interested in meeting, please submit a new application.

Thank you for your patience.

We are located at:
1591 S Sandoz Rd
Newberg, OR 97132

Some maps will route you to 1591 S Avalon Park, it is the same location.

If you have another dog in the home, we require you, your family members, and your existing dog(s) to come and meet the dog at the shelter.
