£4,090raised of £4,000 target by 43 supporters

    Weʼve raised £4,090 to Create a Database for Irish Setter Health Issues.Only by sharing knowledge can we hope to improve the health of this wonderful breed

    Funded on Saturday, 25th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    It seems so unfair that such a beautiful, loving breed as the Irish Setter is beset by health issues. We want to create a database that will help unravel the mysteries and give the general public a chance to tell their dog's story. We want breeders to join together and share the good news of longevity and proven good health in their dogs as well as share the resource of verified testing.At a glance we want you to be able to research the health status to make an informed choice about buying a puppy or using a dog at Stud or even whether it is a good idea to breed from your bitch.Research has been done by individuals but this will be a database that anyone can upload to and share information. There will be three administrators who will check that the information supplied is accurate before the information is published, this isn't about rumour mongering, it is about proven and veterinary verified information being available to all.

    All pedigree breeds of dogs have a list of genetic problem areas, that doesn't mean that a cross breed is any healthier , it's just that with a pedigree dog you can research to find your very best chance of a healthy pet if there are known issues within the breed.

    We want our companion Irish Setters around us for the longest time possible, it is always too early to say goodbye at any age but by opening up this resource we all have a better chance of an Irish Setter with a long and healthy life.

      THANK YOU In just a few weeks we have raised 100% of our target of £4,000 to create Irish Setter Database to give a trusted resource to breeders, buyers of puppies and those who want answers.I cannot express what your support means to me, I can hardly see the keyboard through my tears. For every dog I have cradled in my arms and wept over as their spirit left their body, for every sleepless night comforting a terrified dog keeping the epilepsy monster away, for every dog I have watched struggle for breath with MO..This is in their honour

      Wow! 75% , thank you so very much. We want to make sure that dogs like Lincoln (Astleyview Red Lincoln) who suffered epilepsy & Lupus all of his short life did not die in vain ..We don't need to blame, we need to change!

      I hope the data base will help to find the cause of problems within our breed, and hope breeders will be more honest
