About Our Rescue Group:The mission of the rescue organization is the dedication for the preservation and advancement of the Newfoundland Dog by rescuing those unfortunate Newfoundlands that may end up abused, abandoned, neglected or in shelters.
A Newfoundland should not be acquired casually or disposed of lightly but sometimes an owner’s circumstances change and the Newfoundland is unable to remain with its original owner. It is on these occasions that we will find a new, suitable, permanent home where the Newfoundland will be loved, cared for, and respected for it’s unique qualities.
We do require a home check, and references. The adoptive family is responsible for picking up any Newfoundland they are approved to adopt.
Any pure breed Newfoundland that is legally turned over to us is immediately taken to one of our participating veterinarians for a complete health check, vaccinations, if needed, and is spayed/neutered. The Newf is then placed into one of our foster homes for an undetermined length of time (depending on the Newf’s condition) for a complete evaluation of the Newf’s retraining, rehabilitation and restoring of health. The Newf will be kept in foster care as long as necessary to prepare it for entry into its new and permanent home. Before any adoption is ever made, a site visit is made to the potential adoptee's home to determine if they and their home environment would be suitable for a Newfoundland. All potential adoptee's must have the proper pet supplies to keep their Newfy happy and safe.

Our Adoption Process:No Newfoundland is ever placed in a home unless fencing is provided. No Newf is ever adopted for guard or security dog status. All Newfs must live inside the home with the adoptee. All Newfs are adopted out as pets only. A Newfoundland’s temperament is gentle and laid back. They bond quickly with their new owners and adore children. No human is ever their enemy and they would give up their lives to protect their families.

Before any adoption is ever made a site visit is made to your home so as to determine if you and the home environment would be suitable for a Newfoundland Dog. If you are successful you will be shown how to groom your dog, what to feed and what Obedience Schools are in your neighborhood. You will become part of our Adoptive Newfoundland Family.
You will be obligated to provide all yearly innoculations which must be maintained as recommended by your Veterinarian and copies of such vaccinations must be sent to Newfoundland Rescue Program. Three follow-up visits are made to your home in order to be sure that the Newfoundland is being cared for in a proper manner. At anytime after adoption, we will re-adopt the Newfoundland to a suitable home if we find that the Newfoundland is not being given the care it deserves.
When the Newfoundland is placed with its new family, there is a period of time that we refer to as the "pre-adoption." During this approximate one-month time frame, a member of our committee will be in constant contact with the new family to encourage and help with any adjustments. Only after the assigned committee member is totally satisfied that the adoption is adjusting properly, will the Rescue Committee Chairman permit the final adoption to take place. A fee is required immediately upon the "pre adoption period" to help defray the actual expenses incurred by the committee for transporting, boarding, and providing medical care for the Newfoundland.
Won't you please consider taking me home? I need love and care! I may be overwhelming in size, and yes I do have a wet mouth, but I promise to love you unconditionally and return your love ten-fold.
