Stronger Together -
South Central Newfoundland rescue, along with the Newfoundland Club of America Rescue, have had a record number of Newfoundlands come into our care in 2020. This has cost us thousands of dollars in Vet care, and sadly, we have a list of more Newfoundlands still waiting for our help. Some of you may have seen the wonderful rescue placements we've shared along the way, as well as the individual hard stories of Lucy, Lucky, Storm, and Olive to name just a few.
SCNRescue has already placed 59 Newfoundlands in 2020, which is about twenty more than our yearly average. Add in over twenty currently in foster care at various stages of being ready for adoption, we are stretching our limits. At one point, we took in 18 dogs in a period of one month. (More information to come on many of these dogs)
Helping these Newfoundlands takes a team. We are all volunteers, and Rescue could not survive without our Foster Families, Transporters, Financial Donors, Veterinarians, Treasurers, Intake and Adoption Volunteers, and of course, the sweet Newfoundlands needing all of our help. We appreciate everyone lifting us up and want to make it clear that everyone is appreciated!
As with so many individuals and businesses during 2020, the need for what we do has increased, and the financial strain is real. Every dollar counts and we would be very grateful for any donation you can give. A portion of these donations will be shared with NCA Rescue for the dogs assisted in our surrounding region who do not have a Rescue.
We will be sharing more updates as we go along.
