The English Setter Association Welfare is there to help English Setters, their owners and those who are kindly prepared to give a dog a new forever home.

To reach our goals ESAW rely on donations. There are numerous ways we achieve this which includes The Fund-Raising Group on Facebook where stunning items of memorabilia are auctioned. Visit

Some supporters very kindly donate a monthly or annual amount. This can be actioned by using the ESAW standing order form shown below and sending to your bank. Please use your name and postcode as reference.  Your donations can be boosted by a further 25p of Gift Aid for every £1.00 you donate.  Just complete the Charity Gift Aid Declaration Form

    Testimonial from Chris

In January we lost one of our old English setters so I rang Fiona to ask her to let the breeder know. She told me about ESAW and said to put my name down. We rang Fran to do just that. On the 23rd February this year we got a 9 month old blue belton dog who was brought to our house by Eric and Kay, who had fetched him from his previous owner. This poor boy had missed out on so much of his puppy days, so was quite uncontrollable at times. He also had a number of issues, bad ears and eyes, an itchy skin and was very underweight. Next day we took him to our vet for a check over. He has been a real handful at times but with patience and lots of help from our granddaughter and ESAW he is now coming on well. He’s a really beautiful boy and a pleasure to own now he is enjoying cuddles, lots of attention and playing.

Thank you to the people of ESAW for letting us have him and always being on the other end of the phone for advice. A really big thank you to Fiona, Fran and Eric and Kay who arranged all this.

Testimonial from Mr & Mrs Hamer

We just wanted to say how pleased we are with Fozzie. He is a funny, clownish boy and over Christmas, he acted as our own personal Christmas elf and was a big hit with our daughter-in-law. He gets a lot of exercise running around the garden and now walks superbly, thanks to a Canny Collar. Thank you again for finding him for us and please give David our thanks as well.
