In the last 14 years since Illinois Birddog Rescue has been doing better tick-borne screening on our incoming dogs, we have found most of our Setter population is infected needing treatment. The last 3 Setters we have brought into our program have Lyme disease and will be needing additional blood work.

Albus is our newest Setter rescue as of 10-21 this past week. He is a 5 month old sweetheart that was originally bred in Tennessee, but then when he was returned to the breeder, thereafter his cousin in Indiana took him in. He proved to be a little rambunctious for that family and we were lucky to get him into our program. He should be moving to foster to adopt locally soon as we need to get his important tick borne disease screening too and we might need to repeat his blood work twice. He's had nearly zero vetting and will need all his vaccinations and a fecal once we get him to Illinois. Albus looks like the little Setter puppies in the Robert Abbett framed art in the raffle,

Riley is a young female tricolor and white English Setter that came into our program from an over- crowded shelter in Madisonville, Kentucky. She was found as a stray and had ticks on her upon arrival. When she came into IBR's care, she seemed feverish and didn't have a lot of energy. She slept all the time in her foster home. Bloodwork revealed she was very sick with Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Thankfully she started to recover as she was treated with antibiotics. She will need additional blood work before her spay to see how she is doing internally.

Remi is a handsome tricolor and white Llewellyn (English) Setter that was an owner surrender from the Illinois suburbs originally purchased from a breeder in Kentucky. He was bought to be a hunting companion but became gun shy. His owner said he was never right and had some quirky personality issue. While he was vaccinated for Lyme disease, his blood work also revealed he was fighting Rocky Mountain spotted fever so we can assume he has Lyme disease too. Antibiotic treatment has already helped with his anxiety, and he is now in a low stress Foster to Adopt home. We will need to do further blood work to see where his titers for infection go as many vets are vaccinating already infected dogs.

Champ is a 12+ year old senior orange and white English Setter that came to us from northern Wisconsin. His 88-year-old owner needed to move to assisted living and we were very happy to help him get into a new home. Champ also had a Lyme vaccination history but was a sick dog upon arrival. He had a touch of pancreatitis, and he also was suffering from anxiety. His blood work showed a few other issues and while he is being treated for the pancreatitis, he will need new blood work to see where his Lyme titer goes and to check his health before surgery. As a senior dog, Champ will also need a dental and proactive x-ray during his neuter surgery.

In an effort to help fundraise for these dogs we welcome you to participate in the Fall Fundraising Setter Lover's Raffle. My hope is to raise some much-needed funds to help offset the cost of additional bloodwork and Champ's extra vetting procedures.

Tickets are $10 each and will be mailed for your records. The raffle will end on November 1st at 5pm and winners will be announced on IBR Facebook and via email. Many items are not shippable and will need to be picked up at IBR HQ. For things that can be shipped the rescue would appreciate being reimbursed for any shipping expense. We hope you like some of our special prizes and good luck!!
