ADOPTION AND/OR FOSTER HOME APPLICATION
Our application process is a cumulative result of over 10 years of rescue experience. The information requested enables us to assess the type of Setter or Setter mix which best fits your lifestyle and which applicants best match to the personality and energy levels of our Setters. We encourage you to provide as much detail as you can, to enable the best “match”.
Please review our adoption/fostering requirements before completing/submitting your application.
1. You must be at least 21 years old to apply to adopt an A&B English Setter.
2. Proof of annual heart worm testing and proof of heart worm preventative must be available either through receipts or your vet's records for current and recently passed dogs. (Unless not recommended by local vets)
3. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
There are times that, Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue may not be able to place a dog in states in the Western U.S. or to some Canadian provinces. Those states would include Alaska, California, Hawaii, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. However we request that you fill out our application in hopes that we may be able to place a dog in your area. If this is not the case we will notify you within 48 hours.Thank You,
Once your application is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation within 24 hours. If you do not receive this communication, there was an issue with your submission. Please resubmit your application via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will contact your veterinarian to confirm care provided to current/past pets. You will receive a phone call for an initial interview within the next several days. Personal references will be contacted and a home visit scheduled. Once these steps are completed, the information will be reviewed by the application committee. You will be contacted with the results of the review. Although these steps sound as though it will take time to complete, the overall process typically is completed in less than two weeks. Approved adopters will be assigned an “A & B Buddy” to help them find their new Setter family member! Approved fosters will be contacted by our Foster Coordinator to find the foster Setter which best meets their needs.
Thank you for considering adopting and/or fostering one of our dogs. We are very excited for both you and our setters!
