new all about FONBAS
What is FONBAS?
Animal Control Services and the Animal Shelter are managed by the Newport Beach Police Department in a new kennel facility on Riverside Drive in the Santa Ana Heights area of Newport Beach. It is generously supported by the community.
The Shelter has the requisite staff, amenities, and volunteers to ensure that the animals experience a comfortable, healthy environment while at the Shelter and are given the maximum opportunity for return to their owners or placement in a new situation. Animals are placed in the shelter as lost, abandoned, strayed, owner turn-ins, or emergency placement due to owner accident, illness, incarceration, or natural disaster. Many are successfully returned to their own homes, while others are placed in forever homes through adoption. Animal Control Officers are assisted by volunteers in the care and socialization of animals in residence.
