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 through Pepe and she joined our setter pack 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.
