I’ve been helping this rescue group for a few years now. As a transporter, I join others by taking a leg in the dog’s journey from a shelter to a foster home. Sometimes it’s a journey from a foster to

You're a good man Mike .

No Hunter is a black and white guy of pretty fair size for a setter, he's a wonderful guy but is very skittish, he is very loving and loves affection, problem is just some little thing will set him of

I think he just got a great home. His foster family immediately fell in love with him. They are applying to adopt him. 

 

Just knowing that I’m  part of a process that takes a skinny abandoned dog to a better future helps me sleep at night.

Wondering if you did not help transport "Lucky" one of our Above and Beyond fosters about 3yrs ago or so, we have his brother Hunter who is pretty mixed up emotionally so we adapted him, fail Fostering 101 repeatedly? He was headed to Pittsburg, PA. At the moment we have three of their setters and have adapted three others in their senior years and have now passed. The couple worked at Quantico Marine Base????

I just don’t know. I’ve helped move more than a few. That is in my area. 

Thank you for fostering and adopting them. 

They are noble animals and deserve better than to be abandoned.

I helped with another setter rescue tonight. Two setters from Turkey. Unwanted dogs there are just dumped on the side of the road. These two made the 11 hour flight from Istanbul and I met them at Dulles airport. They are now on their way to their foster home.

Who is paying to fly them from Turkey to the USA?

 

Nice looking dogs.

The Setter Rescue groups pay for the flights.

Mike, I can't believe someone would dump these beautiful dogs on the side of the road!!! Just don't understand it. Looks like they made the trip over just fine. Glad they have homes to go to. You do good work Mike. Thanks

A recent development with some of the rescue groups is their refusal to place dogs in homes where they will be hunted.  I was very active with a group in Maine that made that decision several years ago.  It seems unreasonable that hunting breeds should not be allowed to go to homes where they will have hunting as one of their myriad of activities.  I fostered dogs, transported dogs and adopted three over the years but, at some point, as a hunter, I was dumped into the basket of deplorables.  Sad situation.  I think I was a victim of outright discrimination.

Just saw this thread, I've volunteered at the local SPCA and it's a nice feeling to directly contribute to a charity, versus wondering where the $$ is going when you donate cash to some organization.  I'll look into this setter rescue, nothing pains me more than seeing any animal being neglected.

That is not the case with ABESR.
