Meet Pete Rose! He’s 7 years young and the most loving lab, just look at that face!  He is on a journey for a healthier and happier life.  He came to us with an injured knee but because he was 30 pounds overweight he was unable to have knee surgery.  He has lost 18 pounds.  Just 12 more to go!
We are looking for a long term foster-to-adopt home for him while he loses the rest of the weight and then recovers from surgery.
He gets along with cats, kids and dogs, but is a little fearful of small dogs.  He needs a quiet home because of his knee already being injured.  He is quite a talker, so he is looking for someone who wants to hear his opinion about everything.  We will be doing fundraising for his surgery.  Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook page to watch his weight loss journey!

If you are interested in meeting Pete Rose, please email Newberg Animal Shelter at to request an Adoption Application.  We expect to receive quite a few applications on him.  We will call the top 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 will remain open for adoptions by appointment only.  This will allow staff to sanitize between each customer.   Please call (503) 554-9285 to schedule an appointment.

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.
