Rating: 5 stars   4 reviews

Issues: Animals

Location: PO Box 328 Oakland TN 38060 USA

Mission: Save Our Setters, Inc., a Tennessee Corporation, was formed in March of 2003 through the unification of setter rescue groups already operating in the eastern and central US. SOS currently provides rescue services in most states, independently of the Irish Setter Club of America (ISCA) yet in cooperation with most Irish Setter rescue groups supported by the ISCA as well as other setter breed rescues. SOS relies on volunteers and donors to fulfill its mission. SOS requires vet references and home visits on all potential adopters to ensure proper care for the setter. All SOS dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. SOS also provides breed-specific information to the potential adopters to make them aware of the energy levels often found in setters. Every effort is made to ensure the best possible fit between the adopting family and their new family member.
Programs: Save Our Setters (SOS) participates in various pet-related events. SOS also participates in parades to help raise awareness of the plight of homeless setters. SOS works with many other rescue groups in an effort to provide the setters with permanent new homes where they will be well cared for and loved. SOS discusses with all applicants the importance of spaying/neutering their existing pets whenever applicable.

I adopted one of the Cheese Balls (lab/setter) back in April of 2010. The mother and her pups were rescued in Arkansas and transported to their foster home in Wisconsin. S.O.S was incredible and arranged for the transport of "Fudge" to Pennsylvania. They are a terrific organization that thoroughly follows each adoption process from beginning to end. I look forward to adopting another pup in the near future.

I have at the moment 3 dogs from SOS. SOS is in the midwest and we live on the east coast. All of the arrangements for adoption were made on line or through the telephone. Everything went very smoothly with matching dogs to our living situation and transporting them to our state. We do our best to monetarily support this organization and I hope that they will receive the donations they need to continue their wonderful work.

I have adopted 2 Irish Setters from SOS. Each time they have been kind, informative and helpful in finding the right dog for my lifestyle and needs.

I have donated to SOS for a number of years. Unfortunately, I am not able to foster or adopt. However, when my sister's setter died, I contacted SOS. Alissa was wonderful! After months of talking to my sister about her needs and the profiles of a number of dogs, an adopting was arranged. Samantha could not be more perfect for my sister if we had created her. They are truly a match made in Heaven at SOS. Reading this site over a period of years has shown me how truly remarkable these people are. Accepting the elderly and the infirm, SOS makes an incredible effort to give each the best quality of life possible. Sometimes this involves huge medical bills. Sometimes it involves hospice care. Whatever the need, SOS does its best. It is truly the" Superman" of setter rescues. Joan in California

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful, dedicated, compassionate people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do incredible things. No Irish, Gorden, or Irish Red and White setters would be turned away for lack of a foster home of money for medical treatment
