Welcome to Our English Setter Rescue

Welcome to Our English Setter Rescue (OESR).   OESR is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit breed rescue with fosters and volunteers throughout the USA, centered around the Great Lakes region, and originally founded in Ohio (and was formerly known as Ohio English Setter Rescue).


With so many unwanted animals found as strays or entering shelters every year, we use volunteer power to save this unique, elegant, fun and lovable breed: The English Setter. We have adopters and supporters from coast to coast and happily share in the idea of personal connection and communal pride in helping setters in need. So we invite you to be a part of OESR and see how you can find a place to call your own in this wonderful community of English Setter Lovers.
