A great event put on by a non-profit group of Newfoundland dog owners that is 3000 strong. Many of their members have their newfs trained in search & rescue, water rescue, therapy, cart pulling, grooming and showing as well as other things. Their Newf Get together & fund-raiser is being held May 22, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois. Currently they have 195 people,83, newfs & 35 non newfs registered. And because it is so early they expect that number to rise significantly. Members and their Newfoundlands come from all over the United States and Canada to attend this spectacular event for rescue.
Be sure to purchase a raffle ticket or bid in the silent auction. During last year's event they broke all records from the previous years and raised close to $7200.00 for newf rescue. These funds were spread out to several rescue groups across the United States. That is helping ALOT of newfs in need.
