A BETTER SETTER RESCUE - MI Chapter's Adoption Process

We are a national breed rescue group and our process is designed to make sure we are very careful in the placement of all our rescue dogs. Here's the link to our online adoption application in case you haven't already started.
There is no cost or obligation for completing the application. Within a few days you'll receive a phone call from someone to discuss your application. We do check vet references and conduct home visits. If you haven't been through a breed rescue adoption process, it may seem lengthy at first but it is just intended to make sure each individual/family adopts the right dog for your family and home. Some of these dogs have already been through so much. In our rescue they are fostered in a home and our intention is that they are never abandoned or let down again.

Sometimes the dog you apply for may no longer be available when the application process is completed, but I assure you we are constantly rescuing wonderful setters that will need loving homes. This is disappointing to some applicants, but they often go on to say that the dog they adopted is an even better fit for their family than the dog that caught their eye on Petfinder. Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions as you go through this process. Thanks again for your interest in giving a rescue dog a home.
We would love to talk to you more about this and consider you as a potential family for one of our setters.

The petfinder site is to steer you to fill out an application so that we can contact you by phone and get to know you better and what you are looking for in a dog.
The first step is to fill out an application. (link above) Once you do this someone will be contacting you to help answer any other questions you may have.
Thank you!


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 home situation their foster 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 A Better English Setter Rescue’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! Every dog rescued will remain in our care until the correct match is found.
Each and every dog will remain in foster care for a minimum of two (2) weeks for

ABESR will assist individuals needing to re-home their English Setters by courtesy posting
the dogs on our available dog’s page. These dogs are clearly identified 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.
