The Irish Red Setter Rescue Charitable Trust (IRSRCT)
(Registered Charity No: 1037633)
The Irish Red Setter Rescue Charitable Trust was established on 17th April 1994 by means of a s Declaration of Trust. Its principal objectives were amended in November 1999 and are now:
- To rescue and provide care and shelter for lost, abandoned, neglected, or ill-treated dogs and to find new homes for such animals wherever possible.
- To fund research into hereditary conditions, or diseases, or conditions in dogs and to disseminate the useful results of such research for the public benefit.
The Trust also has exemption from taxation under Section 506 (1) of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988.
The Trust welcomes donations from all interested in helping to fund the above objectives. Donations may be given at any time and can include bequests in Wills. Recent changes in taxation laws enable the Trust to recover tax at the standard rate on all donations; in addition, those donating can also recover tax at the higher rates if appropriate.
Financial assistance can be made, in accordance with the objectives of the Trust as set out above, to suitable parties at the sole discretion of the Trustees. Because the ISBC Rescue Scheme is performing an excellent rescue service, the Trustees will not, either at the present time, or in the immediate future, undertake the same tasks.
The Trustees: Jane Axon, Catherine O'Callaghan, Jennie Reed, Brian Ross & David Jack, can be contacted through:
Secretary / Treasurer : Mr D B Jack

The Charitable Trust is completely independent of the Irish Setter Breeders Club and the Officers, Committee and Members of the Club are not able to influence the decisions or appointments of the Trustees. Members wishing to make donations for rescue should be specific as to wether they wish to benefit the Club's Rescue Scheme or the Charitable Trust (in which case the Charitable Number should always be used).
