Welcome to the Northern Newfoundland Club...
Welfare Still Needs Your Help!
As you know the Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare believes that we all have a responsibility to rescue dogs in need; to educate the public about the desirability of adopting Newfoundlands as companions and family pets in the home.
None of this would be possible without the generous donations of money that we receive, and therefore we are appealling to you all to help by making a donation to NNC Welfare.
To find out more about the work and some of the costs involved, click the link below.
Our members and visitors to this our Club website are vitally important to our fund raising efforts therefore we have decided to raise the profile of Welfare by including below a new Welfare Paypal donation facility. We would be most grateful for any donation, however small.

Photo Competition - Beat the January Blues
With a new national lockdown now upon us the NNC have decided to run a photo competition. The theme of the competition is "Newfs
We all know that exposure to daylight is good for us since we can often become depressed during the darker months due to our limited sunlight exposure. Our brains love sunlight - it helps to regulate our sleep cycles properly. So when you can make sure you get yourself outside and get as much daylight as you can while it lasts! It’s good for you (and will certainly make you more productive)! While you are out take a photo of your Newf and submit it - you might win one of three prizes we have, which are:
- Dog Groomers Bible (Dogs and How to Groom Them Hardcover – Hilary Harmar)
- The First-Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats (What to Do Now, What to Do Later, over 150 Everyday Accidents and Emergencies, Essential Medicine Chest, At-A-Glance Symptom Finder Hardcover - Amy Shojai)
