Newf Rescue was formed to help rescue and provide homes for Newfoundland Dogs. It is the Club's belief that Newfoundland dogs should not be acquired casually or disposed of lightly. Sometimes an owner's circumstances change and the Newfoundland is found to be unsuited to his or her present home.
The Newfoundland Rescue Network maintains a waiting list of pre-screened adoptive homes that are interested in acquiring a Newfoundland from the Network. 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 Newfoundland's only function is to be a companion to the family and no attempt may be made to use the Newf as an attack dog. These dogs are not free. The cost will depend on the circumstances that the dogs are coming from.
Generous donations from members, bequeaths, grants etc. support the expenses associated with this work.
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 Marjorie Odle by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
