Rescue Work

As founder of the Newf Friends Newfoundland Dog Rescue here in Ontario she is committed to helping Newfs in need.   Visit Newf Friends at www.newf-friends.ca to learn more.

At the Black Dog Barnyard, Sandra and Jim have fostered many homeless dogs over the years.  Visit the Foster Page to learn more about the wonderful dogs who have been in their care.

Over the last decade Sandra's photos have been featured in various rescue calendars.  In recent years she has been offering free photography services to rescue groups both for use in dog's bios and in calendars, greeting cards and promotional materials.
