During these uncertain times, in order to assist with the current COVID-19 crisis, Newberg Animal Shelter has made the hard decision to limit owner surrenders in order to be available for emergency intakes related to COVID-19.
If you have a pet that you need to surrender, please complete a Wait List form. You will be contacted to schedule and Intake Evaluation when space is available for your pet. You can also utilize the Adopt-A-Pet Rehome Program (information below).
If you have found a stray dog, please contact YCOM (503) 434-6500 for assistance.
Thank you for your patience through this difficult time.
By appointment only
Newberg Animal Shelter accepts pets from the owners by appointment only. We are a small no-kill shelter, space and resources are limited.
We maintain a Wait List of animals that need to come into the shelter and your pet will be added to the list. We are unable to accept pets the same day.
As pets are adopted, space becomes available, and owners will be called to schedule an intake evaluation appointment. We give appointment priority to at-risk pets and pets affected by natural disaster.
What to expect at the Intake Evaluation Appointment
When staff calls to schedule an Intake Evaluation Appointment, your pet will undergo health and behavioral evaluations. Please plan to bring in all vet records you have for your pet. This appointment does not guarantee that we will be able to take your pet into the shelter. The evaluations are to determine if the pet is safe to bring into the shelter. We have a responsibility to our volunteers and the pets in our care. We will not bring in pets that pose any serious health risks.
We will have you fill out a pet questionnaire with detailed information on your pet that we can provide to their future family.
Surrender fees are required at time of surrender. If you cannot afford the surrender fee, please talk to staff during your Intake Evaluation.
DOG/PUPPY (or litter of puppies): $65
CAT/KITTEN (or litter of kittens): $40
LOW INCOME: Fee Waived (must present ID and evidence of assistance)
We take on the cost of caring for your pet until we find the right home for them. The care we provide costs more than we are able to recoup with adoption fees. If you are able to give more than the required fee, it helps us continue to provide quality care for all of the pets.
Adopt A Pet Rehome program
Another option to re-home your pet is through Adopt-A-Pet.com’s Rehome program.
This program is managed by Adopt A Pet and not Newberg Animal Shelter.
This option is if you are able to keep your pet while finding them a new home. You create a profile for your pet to be posted on Adopt-a-Pet.com, you would review applications, meet adopters and finalize the adoption.
If you use the below link and add that Newberg Animal Shelter referred you to this program then we do get a donation if you use their services.
