Our Mission
A Better English Setter Rescue's goal is to help unwanted, homeless English
Setters by providing them a loving foster home. When the dogs are in foster
care they will be altered, evaluated, and receive all vetting needed for adoption.

Each foster home will evaluate personality, behaviors and activity level. At that
time the foster home determines the type of home situation in which their
foster dog would be happiest.

Each home will be carefully screened to determine whether an English Setter is
the correct choice. Home visits will be done as well as veterinary and reference
checks.  English Setters in ABESR’s care will never be warehoused. Each dog
will live in a home situation (no kennels or living outdoors) as either the only
foster dog or one of 2 adult foster dogs, so a true evaluation of each dog can
occur before adoption. Typically ABESR dogs have interaction with other dogs
and many times children, cats, and even birds! Each and every dog will remain
in foster care for a minimum of two (2) weeks for evaluation. Every dog
rescued will remain in our care until the correct match is found.

ABESR will assist individuals needing to re-home their English Setters by as
courtesy posted. ABESR will not be able to attest to temperament or provide any
evaluation as these dogs are not in our care or program.
A Better English Setter Rescue (ABESR), founded on March 10, 2014, is
dedicated to rescuing English Setters from shelters and poor living conditions
and helping those that  need to be re-homed for other reasons.  Our Board
Members and Volunteers have many years experience saving dogs.  We have
taken our collective wisdom and love for the English Setter breed to create
ABESR, a safe haven for homeless Setters.

A Better English Setter is a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) organization based
in Ramsey, NJ.

With our entrance into this community, more English Setters will be saved,
taught to love and trust again, and find the home of their dreams.
