Update: September 7, 2011

Another busy time for Newf Friends with new arrivals and adoptions. Here's what we've been up to:

4 year old beauty River arrived in our care last week and she needs your help! This sweet girl's legs are a mess and we are enlisting the help of a Soft Tissue Surgeon to perform multiple specialized surgeries to help repair her legs and enable her to live the life she deserves. Donations are desperately needed to help us cover the high cost of River's veterinary care. We expect that she will be in our foster program for approximately 6 months, require up to 3 surgeries and extensive rehabilitation before she is healed and ready to be adopted. River's bio can be read here.
Thank you to all of the generous donors who have contributed towards River's veterinary care so far. Over $1400 have come in over the last week, but we still have a long way to go! We are estimating that over the next few months we will need approximately $6000 to cover River's vet bills, pain medications and expenses during her time in foster care. Please, if you are able to help, considering making a donation.

Also new in our program is 6 year old love bug Otis. This gorgeous purebred Landseer is in the loving care of Dr. Janice who is working hard to resolve his skin/feet/ear issues. He is making progress, but will need a bit more time before he will be ready to join a new family. Read all about him here.

Yogi still needs a family to love! 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!

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 is still waiting for the right family to come along. Don't miss out on this awesome girl, she is a fabulous girl! Gentle, easy going, well mannered Jade is an all around awesome girl. She gets along with everyone! Read all about her here.
