Newberg Animal Shelter is an independent, non-profit organization that serves all of Yamhill County. Every year the shelter takes in and rehomes around 1,000 stray and owner-surrendered animals. As a private organization, they rely on donations, adoption fees, and fundraising to cover the costs of providing their much-needed work for the community.
As a no-kill shelter, finding new loving homes for all their animals is their top priority. When there's enough space, the charity will take in other animals from high-kill shelters in Oregon and other states.
