Newfoundland Club of New England Rescue and Referral Leadership Change

Recently, the NCNE Rescue Chair, Beth Rossi, formed a new organization, National Newfoundland Rescue (NNR). This has been a dream for Beth for quite some time. This organization is formed to address the needs of Newfoundland rescue in underserved areas of the country as well as handle mix breed Newfoundland dogs.

The NCNE Board of Directors decided having these two organizations run by the same individual posed a conflict of interest and was creating some confusion among the Newfoundland community. Therefore, the Board made the decision to move forward with a leadership change of NCNE Rescue and Referral. Beth will work with the club to have a smooth transition and will step away from her responsibilities for NCNE Rescue.

In the meantime, Cathy Derench from That Newfoundland Place, will serve as the facilitator for NCNE Rescue and Referral needs effective today, March 9, 2022. The Board is grateful for Cathy’s willingness to help coordinate the activities of the NCNE Rescue and looks forward to finding a permanent coordinator in the near future. If you are interested, please contact Mary Bylone at or 860-908-2909.

The Board wishes Beth all the best in her efforts to continue to meet the needs of the Newfoundland dog and acknowledges the excellent job by Beth for developing a strong team and establishing a much needed social media presence for NCNE Rescue.

Please join us in sending a big thank you for all Beth has done for our Newfoundland Community.
