NEBR News & EventsHappy New Year!
Hello Everyone and Happy New Year! Here's hoping that spring is just around the corner; however, my Brittanys continue to love the snow. We wanted to send a short note to update you on a couple of things. Several folks have asked about our Brunch for the Brittanys. We are so grateful that it's on your mind, but after three successful years, we are taking a hiatus for 2013. Rest assured, we're working on resuming the event in 2014. If you know of a good venue for us to explore, or have an idea about a great speaker, please send me an email -- always happy to hear your suggestions. Of course, just because we're taking a break from the event, our costs to take care of all of the tail waggers that we bring into rescue don't take a break at all. So we're always happy to receive your donations.
New NEBR Blog is now Online
We have created a blog to better share all of your great adoption stories. Whether you have had your brittany for years, or are just getting acquainted, we would love to hear your story and have you share your favorite (only 1 per story please) picture of your dog. The stories will be posted in our blog and can be read by adopters, future adopters, and volunteers. Your story just might be the one that gives one of our rescued britts a forever home! Please send all of your stories to Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get your story and pic posted on our blog. If you want to read the stories, getting to them is simple, just click the tab on our website and it will take you right there....or go to http://nebrescue.blogspot.com
Foster Homes Needed
If you have some room in your home and in your heart, NEBR is looking for foster homes and families to add to our list.
Fostering is the true life line of rescue as it offers a Brittany a temporary place to be while awaiting a forever home. In addition, fostering is a wonderful experience and can build a foundation of philanthropy in your children. It is extremely rewarding when you’ve helped a Brittany find its new home.
A mid nineteenth century author Albert Pine said, "What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal". Your act of kindness is repaid in rewards that are beyond words.
If this is something that you might be interested in, please contact NEBR president Christine Leachman-Yee at email@example.com.

Happy 2013 To All You Brittany Lovers and Supporters!
New England Brittany Rescue certainly helped many Brittanys and Brittany mixes find their forever home in 2012, and now we set our sights on 2013, hoping to help as many tail-waggers as we can. Our hearts were warmed several times over as many of you sent in your photographs and stories from the year and past years as well. And we were also saddened at times, when we learned that some had crossed Rainbow Bridge. NEBR wishes that we have no more homeless four-leggers this year, but we stand ready to help those that need us. If you're interested in adopting, please check out our available dogs. As always, it's an ever-changing group.
Beach Bash 2012
About 70 Brittanys and their human families enjoyed a wonderful day at the Annual Beach Bash in early October. The weather was perfect for a day on the water, and the four leggers and two leggers alike walked, enjoyed some yummy picnic food and got a chance to connect, converse and share Brittany stories. It was a chance for former foster parents as well to see some of the dogs that once lived with them. As always, it was a wonderful day. We hope to see you all again next year!
