Update - January 13

We've had a busy week at Newf Friends and are a little behind in emails and phone calls for non-emergency matters. Volunteers are working on getting caught up. Thank you for your patience.

Drum roll please........Mackenzie, the girl who refused to be spayed, has finally been spayed!!!!!! Mac had surgery today and all went well. She also had her cherry eye operated on, and unfortunately the damage from it being left untreated for 4 years by her previous owner was more extensive than anticipated. There is a 30% chance her surgery was successful. We will know in a few days. If it wasn't we will be taking her in for a second surgery by an ophthalmologist. Either way, she should be ready to join a loving family very soon.
She's a sweet girl, affectionate and playful, and will make a great addition to the right family. She is full of life, has lots of love to give and is a well mannered, wonderful girl. Read her bio to learn more about her!

New arrival today, this yet to be named boy is in rough shape. Picked up this afternoon as an owner surrender, this 7 month old pup has some serious skin issues going on. He has been taken into foster care and an update will be posted as our vet assessment is completed.
Despite being in poor condition, he is an affectionate, friendly, playful happy-go-lucky boy. Stay tuned for more details and an update on his progress.

Charlie is doing great in his foster home. This sweet boy is a real love bug and will make one lucky family very happy! This fun loving fella' is under assessment and we will start screening homes for him very soon. Get your application in now if you would like to be considered for adopting him! Charlie's bio can be found here.

Beautiful Ruby is recovering very well from her emergency spay surgery and will be having her sutures removed and vaccines administered on Tuesday the 18th. She will be ready to go after then. We will be making decisions about who the lucky family will be that will be adopting her very soon. Read about Ruby by clicking here.

Congratulations Jake on your adoption! The big sweetie joined his new family and they report that he is doing great! We're very happy for all of you!
