What Newfoundland Rescue Does

Donate to Rescue

Newfoundland Rescue finds loving homes for unwanted purebred Newfoundlands.


Newfoundlands in Rescue are acquired from animal shelters or surrendered by owners who can no longer keep them. First, Rescue tries to determine the breeder of the Newfoundland. Responsible Newfoundland breeders will take back dogs they have bred, regardless of age or condition. If the breeder cannot be determined, or the breeder is unwilling or unable to be responsible, Rescue fosters the Newf.


Newfoundland Rescue spays or neuters all Newfoundlands that are fostered by the Rescue Committee. They receive all necessary medical attention and are microchipped so they are permanently identified and linked to our group.


Newfoundland Rescue tries to be the adopting party on all animal shelter dogs. This way a Newf knowledgeable person can assess the dog’s temperament and health status, properly groom the Newf, and make sure it is adopted into an appropriate home.
