Like so many others having to change plans during this crisis, we are going to postpone sending out the prizes each month for coupons for free meals at local restaurants until the restaurants are able to open again and return to their profitability.  We will continue to seek new members during this time and will restart the raffle and prizes as soon as we can.   At this time we are also having to change our plans for the July Founding Membership party and reschedule that when we are able to have group gatherings and when we feel that all of us will feel safe and happy to be partying again.

Our sincere appreciation goes out to all of you who have helped FONBAS with your memberships and donations and we hope you will continue to encourage more members as we move ever closer to having our own permanent animal shelter for Newport Beach.  Just this week we were able to rescue a dog who needs some dental work and has already been adopted.  We can happily provide the dental work and one more puppy will have a loving forever home.

Join Today to Enter Our Founding Membership Raffle

Monthly drawings will resume as soon as the business at local restaurants returns to normal.  Your membership donation will enter you into the raffle as soon as it resumes.

The more you give, the better your chances.  For every $25 you donate, one ticket will be entered into the raffle in your name.  For example, if you give $1,000 to become a Big Dog Founding Member, 40 tickets will be entered into the raffle in your name. Or, if you give a $100 gift of membership to a friend, you will get 4 tickets entered in your name.

The sooner you give, the better your chances.  If you start donating now, your tickets will not only remain in the raffle for every monthly drawing, but they will also remain in the raffle that will be held at our Founding Membership party when our goal of 800 is reached and we are able to hold the event.

Make a Gift

Your gifts make sure every animal gets a chance.  When you support the Newport Beach Animal Shelter, you are helping to provide dogs, cats, and critters with food, medical care, human socialization, and shelter until we can find them homes of their own.  Thanks to you, we can provide for hundreds of homeless pets each year.

We rely on the generous financial support of our community to provide animal and community programs and services to the Newport Beach community.   As a nonprofit organization, all gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Our tax ID is # 82-1830129.  We are a 501 (c)(3) organization and our policy is to never sell, or trade our donor personal information to any other entity.
