What We Do
Some of the stories of Newfs entering the Rescue program are heartbreaking. Many are uplifting. Newfoundlands have a powerful influence on the lives they touch, for those who listen.
We are thrilled to be one of six organizations that over the past 20 years combined to donate more than $3.3 million to the American Kennel Club's Canine Health Foundation and who have been named Distinguished Research Partners recognized Dec. 11 during the Canine Health Foundation's Canine & Cocktails event in Orlando, Fla..
"These clubs and organizations are making a lasting impact on canine health," said Shila Nordone, MS, Ph.D., the Canine Health Foundation's chief scientific officer. "Their donations ... are supporting research that addresses some of the most prominent health concerns for our dogs. We are tackling cancer, subaortic stenosis, hypothyroidism, degenerative myelopathy, epilepsy, bloat and cardiomyopathy.
"Together, we are working to provide better treatments and more accurate diagnoses for all dogs."
The Canine Health Foundation, a grant-making institution, will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2015.
Thank you for your support of NCA Charities and for sharing our passion to provide a safe and healthy future for every Newfoundland.
