A network of volunteers working together to help Newfoundland Dogs in need in Ontario, Canada


Newf Friends Newfoundland Dog Rescue is a foster home based rescue group operating in Ontario, Canada. We place dogs into carefully screened homes in Ontario and parts of neighbouring States, within a days drive. If you are outside of our area visit the Newf Rescue listings for Canada or the Newf Club of America Rescue Listing to find a rescue near you.

AVAILABLE DOGS

We are located in Ontario, Canada and preference is given to applicants who live within a days drive of our foster homes.  This typically includes most parts of Southern, Central and Eastern Ontario, and parts of neighbouring states and provinces.  We do not ship dogs, adopters are required to pick their dogs up in person. Please see our FAQ page for links to other rescue groups across North America to find a contact for your area.

The First Step to Adopting
If you see a dog that you would like to adopt, the first step is to download, complete and return our Adoption Application (get the application from the Forms section). Once we receive and review your application, we will contact you if you would be a suitable match for one of our current dogs. Please be patient; we are a volunteer run group and it may take us a while to contact potential adopters. Please visit our FAQ page if you have questions about our adoption process.

Already Have an Application with Us on File?
If you have previously submitted an application and are currently on our waiting list, and you see a dog listed here that is of interest to you, please send us an email letting us know that you would like to be considered for that dog. 

Consider Fostering to Help Newfs in Need
We can only help as many dogs as we have foster homes and foster homes are desperately needed! If you think you'd like to foster a Newf in need please complete the Foster Home Application (get the application from the Forms section) and return it to us.

NOTE:  This list is updated daily.  Unless otherwise noted in their bio, all of the dogs listed are available for adoption.
