Welfare Still Needs Your Help!
As you know the Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare believes that we all have a responsibility to rescue dogs in need; to educate the public about the desirability of adopting Newfoundlands as companions and family pets in the home.
None of this would be possible without the generous donations of money that we receive, and therefore we are appealling to you all to help by making a donation to NNC Welfare.
To find out more about the work and some of the costs involved, click the link below.
Our members and visitors to this our Club website are vitally important to our fund raising efforts therefore we have decided to raise the profile of Welfare by including below a new Welfare Paypal donation facility. We would be most grateful for any donation, however small.
Club Open Show
The NNC Open Show run in conjunction with the NC was judged by Mr Paul Dodd; We had an excellent entry of dogs, their was a very friendly atmosphere and the show was a great success.
All results, photos and critques are now online.

Breeder & Puppy Website

The primary purpose of this web site is to put potential Newfoundland puppy buyers in touch with reputable and recognised breeders by steering them away from general online puppy sites (e.g. Epupz, etc).
Recycle and raise funds for NNC Welfare
The Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare have teamed up with a recycling firm who deal with mobile phones, ink, lazer and toner cartridges. For items recieved they will donate money to NNC welfare.
Click on the logo to be taken straight to our page on the Recycle for Charity web site where you can enter your details to recieve a freepost envelope in which to send your recyclable items - you can put up to 5 mixed items in each envolope. If you are unsure if your items can be recycled you can check when you are on the recycling page.
There will be large collection boxes and freepost envolopes available from Welfare volunteers at certain events but you don't have to wait, get recycling now and help to raise much needed funds for the NNC's welfare work.
