Saving lives one adoption at a time...

Caring for animals and working to find loving forever homes


Friends of Newport Beach Animal Shelter is a nonprofit organization made up of community volunteers who work in conjunction with the Animal Control Division of the NBPD.

The organization's goal is to raise money for additional medical care and services-over and above what the city provides-  to make shelter animals more adoptable so they can find forever loving homes.
