We are NorCal Irish Setter Rescue, Inc. We are a charitable, non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to the care and placement of Irish Setters who need a new home, through no fault of their own. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. We work with other Rescue organizations around the United States to benefit Irish Setters throughout the country.
Our organization began out of the need to help homeless and unwanted Setters. We rely on our dedicated and generous volunteers who donate their time, energy, and money, to care for these rescued dogs. Our volunteers provide transportation for the dogs, foster homes, care and training for the dogs, and so much more.
We receive dogs from several sources. Sometimes lifestyles can change, such as a death in the family, divorce, the arrival of a new child, or a family moving to a new home that does not allow animals. There have even been rare cases where an animal has been abandoned or dumped along the road. Most Animal Shelters and SPCA's work closely with various Breed Rescue Groups in order to place dogs into good homes.
Our goal is to find permanent, "forever homes" for our gentle, loving, red-headed friends.
