2014 - 007

May 6, 2014:  I was adopted!

Say hello to Diesel, a goofy and lovable boy who arrived in our care on March 16.   This friendly boy gets along with everyone he meets and is just a big love bug.

Diesel was surrendered to us with his sister Bella when their loving owner had changes in their life and could no longer provide the level of care that these wonderful dogs require.  It is clear that Diesel and Bella were very well loved.

This sweet boy lived with another Newf and would be happy to join a home with another well mannered, mellow dog.  He plays well with other dogs and is friendly and social, although he would be best in a home without a dominant male who would challenge him.

Diesel was born on December 14, 2010 and is a happy, healthy fella.  His vaccines are UTD and he will be neutered shortly.

Diesel is being fostered in the Bancroft area.  An adoption donation of $500 applies.



July 6: I was adopted!

Pretty gal Bella arrived at Newf Friends on March 16th and is doing very well at her foster home.

Bella was surrendered to us with her brother Diesel when their loving owner had changes in their life and could no longer provide the level of care that these wonderful dogs require.  It is clear that Diesel and Bella were very well loved.

A happy girl, Bella loves to romp and play, and isn't above getting herself all dirty in puddles!  She is a sweet girl who will make a great companion for someone looking to have fun with their dog.

Bella is a friendly gal who loves people and enjoys getting lots of attention.   She lived with another Newf and gets along with well mannered dogs.  She could happily join a home with another well socialized dog.

Bella was born on October 25, 2009 and is a healthy 4 year old girl. She has been spayed and her vaccines ave been brought up to date.

She is a smart girl and would be a great candidate for working dog activities.  She knows her basic commands and will also open and close drawers on command, rings a bell to go outside, knows some basic carting commands like backing up and is eager to learn more!

Bella is being fostered in Kanata and her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 applies.

100 Items in 100 Days

It's March Break and once again 9 year old Ty and 7 year old Riley are kicking off another amazing project!  These boys are so awesome!

You may recall that last year the boys pledged to collect 100 toys in 100 days, and not only did they meet that goal, but they far exceeded it!  Thanks to Ty and Riley, and our generous donors and supporters, all of Newf Friends and HART's fosters have toys to play with at their foster homes!

This year the boys are looking for donations of other much needed items: leashes, collars and dog beds!  The items are shared between Newf Friends and the all breed rescue HART that we operate under. 

If you would like to help the boys out by donating a collar, leash or dog bed there are a few ways you can donate:

  • To drop items off in person within Ontario, email us to find a volunteer near you
  • Items or gift cards can be mailed to Newf Friends at PO Box 1139 Bancroft, ON K0L 1C0 Canada
  • Cash donations to go towards the boys purchasing the items themselves can be sent to us by clicking the Donate button at the top of the page, just put a comment that the funds are for the 100 items in 100 days drive.


 A big thank you once again to Ty and Riley for being not only great fosters to so many animals in need, but for being fantastic volunteers who go above and beyond to help out rescued animals.  You boys are the best!
