Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We don't know how Darrin spent his early life. His story begins in Pickerington Ohio, when he was found in below zero weather. That's when a good Samaritan stepped in. Darrin was brought into a warm home and given lots of food, water and love. But what about all of the other unwanted cats and dogs?
In January 2003, the good Samaritan gathered a group of concerned individuals in Fairfield and Franklin Counties to organize a new animal shelter. The Board members of New Beginnings Animal Shelter received their Articles of Incorporation and began planning for their new shelter. We were granted our Federal Tax Identification Number and our 501 (c) 3 Tax Exempt status in 2003.
The last two filings with the state have also been completed.
Our goal is to find land and build a shelter. Currently, we are using a
foster care system. Fundraising is underway! We receive no government funding. Our revenues are generated from private donations and fundraising efforts. It is the goal of New Beginnings to end the senseless tragedy of euthanizing healthy
animals. Our no-kill policy means that animals will not be euthanized as a means of population control or a matter of convenience. However, for an animal that has no hope for a quality life, euthanasia may be the only humane option. New Beginnings Animal Shelter strives to preserve and enhance life. We need the support and help of concerned citizens to become as effective and wide-reaching as possible. We hope you will join us!
