Sarah is one of the SeBPRA trustees and organises the day to day running of SeBPRA alongside Tessa, from liasing with shelters to helping support adopters.

Having had setters my whole life, I was shocked to hear that so many are abandoned each year in Spain and other countries by their hunters. We adopted Remy, a blind Gordon Setter from Spain and she joined our two setters Mack and Alf in late 2017. Having an Irish, English and Gordon setter I may be biased, but they really are a wonderful breed that I couldn’t imagine living without and I know a lot of our adopters would agree!

Adopting Remy taught me more than I thought I would ever need to know about dogs and it never seems to stop! I soon starting helping SeBPRA rehome dogs, focussing mainly on setters, as well as helping with fundraising and other parts of the group as we grow. Working with animals has always been a dream of mine and there is nothing as amazing as helping to take a dog out of a kill shelter, fund it to stay somewhere safe and then watch as they meet their new family and learn that they are safe and loved at last.

Since adopting Remy, we have fostered as well as expanded our own little gang with the addition of Bruno and Arey!
