Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We accept Gordon Setters from Illinois, southern Wisconsin, eastern Iowa and western Indiana. We will refer families relinquishing Gordons from outside of our rescue area to their local Gordon Setter Club of America rescue committee.
About Our Rescue Group:We are the Illinois/southern Wisconsin rescue committee for the Gordon Setter Club of America. Dogs come into our Rescue Program in a variety of ways. Some of them were picked up as strays by animal control facilities and others have been released to us by previous owners who could no longer keep them. While in foster care, we provide these dogs with basic obedience training.
Occasionally we have other breeds of dogs available for adoption if they enter our foster care program with a Gordon Setter from the same home.
Rescue Gordon Setters are not sold or given away. We ask that all adopting families make a donation for the Rescue care of the dog they adopted. Our dogs are fostered in the homes of people knowledgeable about the Gordon Setter breed so that we can have the best possible understanding of their personalities. Medical and maintenance bills for most dogs in our care are approximately $300, so by providing that donation, you allow us to continue to care for other rescued Gordons. To the best of our abilities, we will provide a complete health record of the dog you adopt. Dogs are spayed or neutered before adoption, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
