Southwest English Setter Rescue
This page features all the beautiful rescue dogs Available to Adopt Now. You'll also find our preliminary postings of dogs that are 'Just Rescued', are 'Under Evaluation', will be 'Available Soon', or with a 'Foster-to-Adopt' home. We'll post more details on these dogs very soon. On occasion we will also show Courtesy Posts (dogs that are available to adopt through another rescue group that we'd love to help find their forever home). Please click on a picture or name to go to a dog's own webpage with pictures and their story. You can learn about our Virtual Foster program by clicking on one of the hearts in the photos below.
