Upon my resignation, the decision was made to close Newf Friends to intakes. We were hoping to have some information available by now about the future of Newf rescue in south, central and eastern Ontario but at the moment we don't have any commitments made. We have approached both of the regional clubs in our catchment area to see if they can fill the gap, as some regional clubs do in other provinces. No decisions have been made, and we don't anticipate any concrete decisions for a while yet.
Once those decisions are made, our Board will then work to dispense our remaining funds to the groups who will be taking over, to ensure that the funds go to help Newfs in need. At the moment we continue to offer any needed financial support to other Newf rescue groups across Canada, as we have always done.
I look forward to seeing you at future Newf events.
Founder, Newf Friends Newfoundland Dog Rescue
