As with any breed Newfoundlands occasionally need rescue or rehoming, often as a result of a marriage breakdown, changes in housing or employment or other unforseen circumstances.
The Northern Newfoundland Club have a dedicated Welfare Officer responsible for bringing these dogs into care and for finding them suitable new homes. If for any reason you are no longer able to look after your Newfoundland we urge you to contact us for help.
Equally if you are interested in offering a Newfoundland a new 'forever' home please contact our Welfare Officer Ros Dyer.
The Northern Newfoundland Club works closely together with the UK's other two KC registered and recognised Newfoundland breed clubs namely The Southern Newfoundland Club - UK and The Newfoundland Club to provide a nationwide network of welfare support.
We strongly recommend that persons wishing to support Newfoundland welfare and rescue specifically, should contact one or more of the UK's Kennel Club registered and recognised Breed Clubs. Please be aware that there are currently independent groups offering rescue newfoundlands for re-homing and requesting donations. However, please note that these groups are not registered or recognised as rescue organisations by the three Kennel Club registered breed clubs.
CAN YOU HELP WELFARE, PLEASE?
We are looking for people who feel they can open their homes to fostering a Newfie.
We URGENTLY need people to come forward and help, without foster homes we have nowhere for them to go until an appropriate adoption can be put into place.
If you feel you can help, please e-mail Ros Dyer.
Or telephone Ros on the welfare mobile: 07766 797257
The club is also looking for individuals who can help with the following;
- Home checks.
- Help with the transportation of dogs.
- Help to foster a newfie until an appropriate home can be found.
- To be prepared to invite prospective new owners into their homes.
- Give sound advice about the breed and allow individuals to meet your newfie's in person.
- Help to raise funds to support welfare.
Loose Change Appeal for Welfare
We are delighted to have received some loose change appeal boxes back already, and a big thank you to everyone for their support. Small amounts of coppers really do add up to pounds and the average amount
per box so far is about £10. So please keep saving if you have a box. Remember it can be returned at any club event such as a show, a working event or the AGM. If you would like to join in this appeal
we would be pleased to send you a collection box. Please e-mail Sue Sanders.
Letís try and make £1,000 for Welfare!
