Can you help?
The club is always looking for individuals who can help with;
It is our belief that a Newfoundland dog should not be acquired casually or disposed of lightly but sometimes an owner's circumstances change and the Newfoundland is found to be unsuited to his or her present home. It is on these occasions that we try to find a permanent new home where the Newfoundland will be loved and respected for its unique combination of qualities.
Newfoundlands become available for adoption throughout the year. There is a process you need to take in order to be considered for a NEWFFLA rescue. It begins by completing an Adoption and a Membership application. You must become a member of NEWFFLA to rescue one of our dogs and remain a member for the life of the dog. Once the applications are received and reviewed by our Rescue Chair, a home check will be scheduled. The entire application process could take 6-8 weeks.
Once a dog comes into rescue, the foster family begins assessing the dog for temperament, how they get along with humans and other pets, special medical needs and training issues. The assessment is thorough and can take up to 3 months. During that time the Rescue Chair begins reviewing applicants to see who would be the right fit for the dog. It is NEWFFLA's goal to find the best forever home for these rescues. (See Rescue Stories)
Adoption fee is $375.00 and is payable at the time of adoption.
Current Dogs In Rescue
Nana is a 3.3 year old brown and white spayed, female. She loves car rides, likes to play with other dogs of any size and loves people. The foster will be testing for her reaction to cats soon.
While the foster reports that her temperament is typical of a Newfie, she does need training. Nana needs to learn that she is a big girl and to mind her manners. We are still evaluating her so stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
If you are interested in rescuing Nana, please reach out to our Rescue Chairs Donna Viger or Laura Feldman: Rescue Chair
