NEBR News & Events

Another Big Rescue!
New England Brittany Rescue has stepped up to the plate AGAIN for the second time this year to help Brittanys in need -- this time, much closer to home -- in New Hampshire. On October 24th, NEBR rescued 14 Brittanys as a result of an owner relinquishment. More than two dozen additional Brittanys from the same location were helped on October 25 by the Conway Area Humane Society. NEBR will be assisting with 3 of the latter, so that will be 17 in total for our organization. As you might remember, we also assisted by helping 10 dogs from a 103 dog court ordered breeder reduction in Louisiana in July. These two major rescue efforts have greatly impacted us and strained our resources.

The Granite State Britts have needed dentals, spays/neuters, medical evaluations, and more. We are again asking for your help. Foster homes, donations, sponsoring a dog in which a donation would be made to cover the vet costs for one of these wonderful Britts -- it would all be much appreciated!

New England Brittany Rescue recently participated in the court-ordered seizure of 103 dogs from a southern Brittany breeder on July 24. The breeder was found guilty of cruelty to animals, and forced to turn the dogs over to the National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network (NBRAN), who has been working with New England Brittany Rescue, American Brittany Rescue, Brittany Rescue of Texas, and Florida Brittany rescue in finding homes for these dogs.

New England Brittany Rescue's participation in this rescue may present a financial hardship and is resource intensive. If you are able to make a donation, foster a dog, or help with transportation of these dogs, please donate or fill out a volunteer application

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.
