A Dedicated Group of Animal Lovers
Friends of the Newport Beach Animal Shelter was conceived by members of the community Tom Fischbacher, Evelyn Hart, Sandy Meadows, Tim Stoaks, Jean Watt, Nancy Gardner, Walt Howald, and Valerie Schomburg, Newport Beach Police Department, Animal Control Supervisor..
Seeing the need to support Newport's Animal Shelter, the group is in the process of obtaining its nonprofit tax ID # and should have that by August 2017.
Inspired by the Friends of the Oasis Senior Center, Friends of the Newport Beach Animal Shelter has patterned their nonprofit after that group.
Friends of the Newport Beach Animal Shelter hope to supplement funding for the shelter facility to provide upgraded cages, amenities and medical care for the animals to make them more adoptable.
We are dedicated to serving the needs of the animals at the Newport Beach Animal Shelter and finding forever homes for these animals. By providing funding and care we hope to build a brighter future for these animals and the families who adopt them.
The Newport Beach Animal Shelter is located in a building operated by the City of Newport Beach and is generously supported by the community.
The Shelter has the requisite staff, amenities and volunteers to insure that the animals experience a comfortable, healthy environment while at the Shelter and are given the maximum opportunity for placement in a new situation.
