a Rescue Group for Irish Setters, founded in 1968 and operating throughout the British Isles - you
will find us listed in the Kennel Club Rescue Directory and likewise publications. We became
a Registered Charity in August 2008 - The Irish Setter Rescue Group Charitable Trust - 1125317
We depend on donations to run our rescue, not financially supported
by any Breed Club or Society, so we have to raise all our own funds. The Rescue is run by The Trustees,
a Management Group of up to 12 people plus our wonderful and much valued volunteers.
we are also fortunate to get lots of support and help from Irish Setter owners all over the country
- help that we need and appreciate very much. We are pleased to work with other rescue organisations
who need help with rehoming any of our breed.
Our remit is to take in any Irish Setter in need of our help - to get veterinary
treatment for them when necessary, we do not take all dogs to the vets unless there is a problem
that we are aware of to be treated or vaccinations are due. We rehome them in suitable, loving
homes and monitor their progress in their new homes until we are satisfied that all is well and both dog and
owners are happy. We require the owners of the setters we re-home to continue to keep in touch with the Rescue throughout
the lifetime of the Setter we give them, so that we can help and advise the owners should problems arise
at any time. Also should it become necessary, we take back into our care any of the dogs
we place, at any time throughout the lifetime of the dog, until they are too old or too ill to be re-homed
when we would discuss with the owner the best course of action to be taken in the
best interest of the setter.
the Setters who come into our care are kennelled at Four Seasons Kennels in Northants.
Jill & Ken Holley who own and run Four Seasons Kennels have also been in the breed
for a long time. Jill shows and occasionally breed with her setters,
she is a Championship Show Judge in the breed. The Rescue Setters get
care and attention, special diets, visits to the vets are all taken care of. We are most fortunate
to have our Rescue Setters looked after by such experienced people in the breed.
Ideally we would like some more kennelling space in Essex, Herts,
Surrey or Oxon which would be more convenient for dogs coming from the West Country.
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK
pending a visit to meet Toby
A 9 months old neutered
setter needs a suitable loving home with experienced setter people. Toby's mother is from the working side of the
breed so he is smaller that one from the show side. Toby is a very sweet puppy, he has a great temperament, friendly
with other dogs and people although our Rescue we do not re-home where there are children under 9 years of age.
Toby has a good recall, loves lots and lots of exercise and needs someone around to keep him company. We are
looking for a home where someone is home for most of the time, a large and very secure garden will be needed. Toby would
love to find a home where there was another setter to play with - a bitch would be ideal and he would make a great companion
for both another dog and a loving owner. Toby still needs some training, he is still only a puppy. If you have
the experience of owning setters, have the large secure garden, are home most of the time and have the energy needed
to look after and make Toby a happy dog please phone Rescue on 01787 248143 or email<email@example.com>
FERGUS. RESERVED Pending a visit to meet FERGUS
Fergus, 10 months old, neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped has just come into our care.
He is a large young fellow from the Show side of the breed who proved a little too strong for his owner.
Fergus is a delightful young setter, good traveller, good with other dogs and very friendly.
We are looking for a home for this young fellow with experienced setter owners who have owned young male
setters before. If you are interested please phone 01787 248143 or email <firstname.lastname@example.org>

|RUSTY AND RANGER
AMBER & CARA and RANGER and RUSTY
have four setters who have come to us from Ireland. They are from the working side of the breed - we understand the
two older ones, approximately 7/8 years old, a dog and bitch have been worked. The two younger ones, also a dog and
bitch brother and sister may not have had any gun dog training. They are 4 - 5 years of age. We hope
eventually to re-home them in pairs as it would be too traumatic for them to be completely separated. The reason they have
come into our care is because the owner has died. More details on our 'Dogs Needing Homes' Page. If you
have any interest in these dogs please contact Maureen on 01787 248143 or email<email@example.com>
