The Irish Red Setter Rescue Charitable Trust
Registered Charity 1037633
The Trustees do, however, support other Rescue Organisations wherever needed; they will also give financial assistance to individuals who wish to keep their dogs and who are in need, for example, of veterinary assistance with which a Re-homing Organisation is not involved, or cannot afford these costs.
The IRSRCT was established on 17th April 1994 by means of a Declaration of Trust.
As well as being a Registered Charity (No. 1037633) , it also has exemption from Taxation under Section 506 (1) of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988.
The Charity has five trustees
Meg Webb: Secretary
Mike Brady: Treasurer
Jane Axon, Brian Ross, Chris Sheldon
The Principal Objectives of the Charity, as set out in the Declaration of Trust, are:
1. 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.
2. 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 Trustees were delighted to receive the approval of the members of the Irish Setter Breeders Club (ISBC) to the transfer of their rescue scheme to the charity. This transfer took effect on 1 June 2017 and included the scheme’s officers and committee. Irish Setter Rescue and Rehome (ISRANDR) is the working name registered with the Charity Commission and undertakes the practical work of rehoming on behalf of the trust. The trademark ISRANDR has also been registered and for details of ISRANDR® click on www.israndr.net .The Irish Setter Rescue & Rehome (ISRANDR) undertakes the practical work of re-homing on behalf of the Trust. The Trustees do, however, support other Rescue Organisations wherever needed; they will also give financial assistance to individuals who wish to keep their dogs and who are in need, for example, of veterinary assistance with which a Re-homing Organisation is not involved or cannot afford these costs.
In order to provide this financial assistance,including the Rescue & Rehoming Scheme, the Trustees seek donations from individuals. Donations may be given at any time and can include bequests in wills. Our exemption from Taxation gives us advantages not otherwise available and the Trustees are able to invest any funds received in long term arrangements from which the income can be used to carry out their objectives. The Trustees are also able to take advantage of the Gift Aid Scheme, recovering tax at the standard rate on all such donations. For more information on donations see below on Fund Raising.
To enable the Trustees to carry out their Objectives, they need to raise funds. From the beginning, they decided that, wherever possible, they would invest any significant donations received (e.g. from bequests) in long-term Investments, and make Donations from the income derived from those Investments. This policy has been successful and the Trustees will continue with it so long as they receive sufficient bequests to provide adequate funds to meet all requirements.
The Trustees also welcome other donations and, because of the Charity’s exemption from Taxation, it is able to take advantage of the Gift Aid Tax Recovery Scheme.
Donations may be made to the Charity under this Scheme and it will be able to recover tax at the standard rate, currently £25.00 per £100.00 donated. Those interested in making Donations to the Charity under the Gift Aid Scheme, should send their cheques to the Treasurer (Mike Brady) together with a completed Gift Aid Declaration (see the Gift Aid heading). Those Donors who pay Income Tax at the higher rate will also be able to recover tax at the higher rate on such donations.
