It is GRNC's belief that Newfoundland dogs should not be acquired casually nor disposed of lightly. GRNC members work towards Rescue Prevention thru education and mentoring, helping new and prospective owners and their families become better prepared for sourcing, rearing and caring for a Newfoundland dog.
The Newfoundland Club Of America Rescue Network was formed to help rescue and provide homes for Newfoundland Dogs. The NCA Rescue Network maintains a waiting list of pre-screened adoptive homes. Placements in these homes are subject to a Placement Agreement which requires that the adopted Newfoundland be spayed or neutered upon placement and may not be used for breeding purposes. Adoptive homes also agree that the dog's only function is to be a companion to the family and no attempt may be made to use such dog as an attack dog.
If you know of a Newfoundland that needs rescuing, would like to provide a home for a rescue dog, or would like to make a donation towards rescue expenses, please contact the NCA Breed Ambassador Marjorie Odle at firstname.lastname@example.org
