Our Mission

OWNCR is a Texas based 501(c)(3) organization committed to assisting Newfoundlands who may otherwise be turned out on the street or face euthanasia in shelters. It's our objective to insure that our Newfs are placed in the best home environment possible. In order to increase the chances of a permanent home, rescues are placed according to best match, not first come first served. OWNCR also provides breed information, training tips and advice to individuals who need assistance with their Newfs.

How Does The Adoption Process Work?

The first step is submitting an adoption application. Once your application is received a member of our organization will contact you to discuss your application. A home visit will be required and references, including a vet reference, will be checked. OWNCR is committed to placing our Newfs in the best possible homes, which means we place on a best match basis, not first come first serve.

How Long Does It Take To Adopt A Newf?

There is no accurate answer to this question as it varies greatly depending on the number of Newfoundlands in our program as well as our volume of quality applications. Sometimes we get a healthy new dog and have a perfect match and the adoption happens relatively quickly, other times it can take many months.

How Much Is The Adoption Fee?

Our standard adoption fee is $350.00. On occasion we do adjust the adoption fee up or down for various reasons, such as a senior dog or costly medical conditions.
