Why NCA Charities

“The NCA Charitable Trust puts the resources of devoted Newfoundland fanciers right where they can do the most good, rescuing Newfoundlands in need, supporting research for healthier Newfoundlands now and in the future, and sponsoring scholarships for young breed fanciers who will one day be the guardians of our gentle giants. As part of the only organization in the United States devoted solely to the well being of these magnificent dogs, the Newfoundland Club of America fully supports the work of the Charitable Trust, and hopes that every NCA member and Newfoundland owner will do the same.”

- Roger Frey, president, Newfoundland Club of America
