To all A and B adopters. This rescue cares about our dogs from the day we hear about them needing help until their last day on this earth. Because we care, we expect every adopter to call us immediately to let us know that their English Setter has escaped their clutches. We can and want to help. As an A and B adopter it is your responsibility to make the phone call to someone on the contacts page and to send us an e-mail, if you have a computer. In most cases, with A and B's help, our English Setters have been back in their homes within 30 minutes. When a dog is lost time is of the essence. Please make a copy of the contacts page and tack it onto your fridge.

We use PetShepherd NC pet tags as our 24/7recovery system for lost dogs. We stand by this system 100% and have seen lost dogs back in their owner’s care within 15 minutes! Your adopted dog will already have a PetShepherd NC tag on. We include 1 year of complete pet recovery protection for your dog with our adoption fee. After 1 year, PetShepherd NC will remind you to renew and choose a coverage plan. It’s important to us your dog is protected as well! So Above & Beyond’s important phone numbers will always be associated with our adopted dogs as a last resort contact. If you are unreachable, we won’t be! So you can always be assured your dog gets back to you safe and sound.
