2012 in Review
It’s hard to imagine That Newfoundland Place has just completed its second full year. Where does the time go?
Our year 2012 included all of our normal events and plans are to do the same in 2013. We are interested in participating with other organizations in functions to become more visible.
- Open House Functions … every two months
- Animal Welfare Society Dog Days
- Coventry Farmers Market Dog Days
- Support for 4milliondogs.org
- Our FIRST Annual Fundraiser/Reunion (SECOND coming up on 9/15/2013!)
During 2012, we had our hands on and/or assisted THIRTY FIVE dogs…included in this number:
-Dogs who came in to our rescue in 2012 and are in their new homes!
Brownie Charlie Girl
Gambit the Husky Harley
Molly the English Springer Munchie the Doxi
Oliver…Lab Rescue Assist Paislee
Raggs the Border Collie Mix Rosie
-Dogs who we helped NCNE foster and/or place in 2012!
-Dogs staying with owners who needed assistance
Griz…needed a spot while owners relocated Kharma…surgery
Maizie … surgery Multiple Spays and Neuters
Multiple routine vet appointments Hope…heart surgery
-Dogs we took in and placed with the help of Animal Welfare Society
Raylan the Mastiff
We also took in Scarpa and Marina during 2012…they remain with us until all surgeries are done and verified related to their devocalization…we are trying to give them a better life and are so grateful to our veterinarians for their expertise in helping these dogs to breathe and live.
We will continue to practice Rescue Prevention during 2013 by helping owners keep their dogs WITH ASSISTANCE. Helping dogs in need will be our focus … Newfoundlands primarily but also mixed and other breeds as we did in 2012.
Our CAT Program will continue in working with Protectors of Animals, Inc., Glastonbury, CT and Animal Welfare Society, New Milford, CT. In 2012, we gave a home to TEN cats!
Again in 2013, we will focus on our visibility and our transparency. Our work with kids and community service will continue and is growing! We hope to deliver our Virtual Adoption program by expanding the concept into a Virtual Adoption/Foster Program. All it takes is time, my friends!
Please keep in touch with us through our website and Facebook.
