Donations are always welcome, and much in need!
In addition to the Club’s Rescue Fund, we have also established the Ellen Toll Katz Fund in memory of the first chair of NCNE's Rescue and Referral Service. This fund provides assistance to families in New England who are going through a difficult time and just need some financial help so they do not have to surrender their Newfoundland to the Rescue Service. Their Newf can then continue to live out its life with its loving family. Please specify in the comments box if you wish to donate to the Ellen Toll Katz fund (just type Ellen Toll Katz)

NCNE proudly maintains a rescue and referral service for the purpose of finding good homes for displaced Newfoundland dogs. Newfoundlands come into Rescue for a variety of reasons. Sometimes families need to give up their Newf, because they do not have adequate time to spend with the dog, allergies or health problems, financial reasons, or behavioral concerns. People often buy a puppy and don't anticipate the size of an adult or the commitment of time, grooming and training. Other families are faced with personal crises. Some rescues are the victims of neglect or abuse.
A veterinarian evaluates every Newfoundland that comes into Rescue. All rescued Newfs are brought up to date on all core vaccinations and are spayed or neutered. We test for tick-born illnesses including heartworm and Lyme disease and a battery of blood work is performed, including a full CBC/Chem Screen. NCNERRS is committed to providing care for any treatable illness or injury. Rescue volunteers also make careful assessments of temperament and behavior.
In order to make the best possible match between the Newfs in rescue and you, we have a multi-step adoption process. Once we receive your completed adoption application, we will check the provided references and make arrangements for a volunteer to visit your home and family. Home visits are NOT white glove inspections; they are the best way for us to get to know you and your family better and help us determine what type of dog would best meet your needs. They also give us the opportunity to discuss Newfoundland care and safety issues as well as personally answer any questions about the breed or the adoption process.
Our goal for each Newfoundland rescue is to place them in a home with caring people who will make them a life long family member.

We understand that giving up your Newfoundland is a difficult decision, but we realize that in making this choice, you are thinking about your dog's best interests. We are here to help. Above all, please be honest; we understand your dog may not be perfect, but the more we know then the better we are able to find the right new home for your dog. Your dog deserves a second chance to find a wonderful home, and by providing us with the detailed information, you will help the NCNE Rescue & Referral Service better accomplish this goal.
Every dog is placed in an approved foster home until an appropriate permanent home is found. In all cases the best interests of the dog is paramount. We applaud your decision for giving your dog a second chance for a good life through this program.
Note: We can only accept purebred Newfoundlands into NCNE Rescue.
Our adoption fees do not cover all of the costs involved in operating our rescue service. We gratefully accept donations of any amount. If you would like to help us re-home and rehabilitate these amazing dogs, please send a check to:
