Info. from Foster:
“Prim has the most impressive purring motor, it shakes her whole body and her fur has a silky softness. She loves to come running with her herd of kittens when I head to the room where we feed them and will come out of her cubby for the sound of a spoon coming out of the drawer or the pop of the can of food. She is a little shy with our dogs, but once they go to bed she will hop in your lap and snuggle down. She has eyes like that tell you all she is thinking, so beautiful. She still plays like a kitten with her own babies now that they are older and they all wrestle together in the living room, her favorite activity is to watch our cage of pet mice.”

Shy cats are kitties that tend to be more introverted and prefer calmer, quieter homes. Due to their shy tendencies, they are often overlooked and the last to be adopted. This holiday, if you have a home that is suited to a shy kitty and are looking for a new companion, please consider giving one of these amazing kitties a HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS! If you have a quiet home, a shy kitty would be a wonderful choice and in-time may come around to warming your lap on those cold evenings relaxing in front of the television. For HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS, shy kitty’s adoption fees have been dropped to $40. To adopt, please come to the adoption event times listed below or submit an application to schedule an appointment.

This HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS adoption event will be every Saturday, beginning December 4th-December 18th from 12pm-3pm!

If you are not looking to adopt a new pet this Holiday, please consider donating towards their adoption fees. Donations will be utilized in the order these kitties are adopted, while the donated funds last.

If you are interested in meeting me, please email Newberg Animal Shelter at frontdesk@newberganimals.com with a completed Adoption Application. We will contact the home that would be the best fit for this pet specifically. If your application is not chosen, please do not consider it a rejection. We receive multiple applications on every pet.

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.
