Update: September 26, 2011

Here's this week's wrap-up......

PoochPalooza a success! Thanks to all of our supporters who came out to visit us at PoochPalooza on the weekend. With so many Newfs in attendance we sure made a statement, and we raised lots of much needed funds too. It's always great to have a visit from so many of the Newfs who have gone through our program.

A big thank you to Deanna and Bryan, owners of The Caledon Inn for organizing this fantastic event and making us a part of it.


New arrival Chewy is doing fantastic in his foster home and we are reviewing applications for him now. Read all about this little cutie here.

Handsome boy Alex is getting settled in foster care. This 2 1/2 year old is still under assessment. Details about him can be read here.

5 year old boy named Tycho is coming along nicely and proving to be a really sweet boy. He has been to the vet for his first exam and is undergoing treatment now for his severe reaction to flea infestation. Details about Ty can be read here.

4 year old beauty River had her first TPLO surgery on September 22 and is recovering well in foster care. The little monkey is feeling great! River's bio can be read here.

A huge thank you goes out to everyone from around the globe who pulled together to raise funds to cover River's treatment and rehabilitation. We met our fundraising goal and can go ahead with giving River ALL needed care. Thank you!

Yogi still needs a family to love! We have had some great applications come in but they have just not been the right family for Yogi. He is such a good boy, surely there is someone out there who wants to love him? Yogi the Saint (who we are fostering for our parent group HART) is still waiting for a family to come along - please spread the word!!! This sweet boy loves people and is friendly and social, he really is a wonderful Saint. Read all about him here. Yogi is a loving boy and will make a wonderful companion for the right adopter.
Because Yogi's needs are unique we WILL consider placing him into a home outside of our catchment area. Please cross post his bio to help us find him a perfect home!

Don't you want to run and play with this boy??? Handsome boy Duke is a super friendly boy who is playful, fun loving and cute as can be. Look how adorable he is! He is having a blast playing and being a total goof ball in foster care. He's a great boy for an active family who wants a playful dog to accompany them while they are out having fun. Read about him here.

Beautiful Jade was adopted by an awesome family on Saturday--they came to PoochPalooza to pick her up! Congratulations Jade!

6 year old love bug Otis has an adoptive home confirmed. He will be joining them after he recovers from his neuter surgery.

Adorable Pandora has an adoption pending, just waiting on the paper work!

Our new line of Newf themed merchandise is ready to go! Our Online Store is updated and we are ready to take orders!

Our parent group HART has dogs of all shapes and sizes available for adoption. If you know of any loving families who are looking to adopt a dog, please direct them to HART!
