A Better English Setter Rescue
29560 Red Bud Hill, Boerne, TX 78015, United States
A Better English Setter Rescue (ABESR), founded on March 10, 2014, is dedicated to rescuing English Setters from shelters, poor living conditions and helping those that may need to be rehomed for other reasons.
Our founders, board members and volunteers have well over 20 years of experience saving dogs. We have taken this wisdom and love for the English Setter breed to add yet another safe haven to the rescue community. 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.
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.
Each of our dogs will live in a home situation (no kennels, rescue ranches 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. When the dogs are in foster care they will be altered, evaluated, and receive all vetting needed for adoption. (We do NOT warehouse dogs in boarding kennels unless it is an emergency where the dog will be euthanized. Should that happen, they are moved to their foster home within days.)
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. 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.
