The Newfoundland Club of America is a non-profit organization
recognized by the American Kennel Club to do all in its power to protect and advance the
interests of Newfoundland dogs.
It is the Club's belief that Newfoundland dogs should not be acquired
casually or disposed of lightly. However it is recognized that sometimes an owner's
circumstances change and the Newf 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
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
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.
Newfoundlands become available for adoption from many sources including
current owners, breeders, humane shelters, animal control agencies, veterinarians, etc.
Generous donations from members, bequeaths, grants etc. support the expenses associated
with this work.
The Club welcomes a review of the Newfoundland Rescue program.

America's Newf Rescue Network - Mary
