Our Rescue Scheme is here to help any Irish Red and White Setters in Great Britain who may be in need.

We are fortunate as a breed that the majority of our breeders continue to care for their puppies long after they have gone to new homes and will take dogs back if things don’t work out.  Rescue is then here to assist and hopefully find suitable new homes for them.

Dogs come into rescue for many reasons, some are strays, some are in need of a new home because of their owner’s change of circumstances or illness and, sadly, at times owing to a bereavement, none the fault of the dog involved.

Rescue dogs come from varied backgrounds.  Some have been the family pet and are used to living in with the family and others, maybe working dogs, who have probably been used to spending a lot of time in a kennel and will need extra care and patience to socialise them.

All will be traumatised in some way, it is a big upheaval in their lives and all will need homes that are prepared to give them all time, patience and most of all unconditional love.
