The Newfoundland Rescue Network maintains a waiting list of pre-screened adoptive homes that are interested in acquiring a Newfoundland from the Network.
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 breeding purposes.
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. and are fostered by volunteers across the country
Generous donations from members, bequeaths, grants etc. support the expenses associated with this work.
