English Setter Club of New England


The English Setter Club of New England Rescue was formed in the mid-1980's by club members who saw a need to place homeless English Setters in New England. It is funded solely by donations and Club fundraisers. All fees collected are used to place homeless dogs. Originally, the dogs came from veterinarians, shelters, and dog pounds necessitating boarding or foster care until placements could be found

Unfortunately, foster homes were scarce and the cost of boarding prohibitive. Today, most dogs are owner surrendered, so ESCNE Rescue has changed to a referral system. People seeking dogs are connected with those wishing to surrender dogs. Fostering and boarding are done only in emergency situations. Both bench and field setters are placed through Rescue.

At this time the club has no one chairing ESCNE Rescue. If you would like information on adopting an English Setter, or have an English Setter that needs a new home, contact a Board Member in your area.
