Welcome to the Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support and Rescue Trust's Web Site.



Has been re-homed by Battersea!

It is a sad fact that there are Ridgebacks that need re-homing and their number is increasing each year.

The reasons for parting are many ranging from the genuine such as the death of an owner, to the absurd, "he's too big and boisterous"! (he is a Ridgeback after all!)

The Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support and Rescue Trust are asked to re-home both dogs and bitches from as young as four months to the oldies of twelve and thirteen years. Our rescue co-ordinator, works tirelessly to find them permanent homes matching dogs and prospective owners to ensure, to the best of our abilities, that it will be the last time the dog has to go through the trauma of being "passed on".

Sadly, despite the best efforts of all Ridgeback Clubs, the number of Ridgebacks that are in need of re-homing continues to grow. Profits from all our rescue events together with all donations are utilised in aiding the rescue of these unfortunate dogs.

Spring Quiz Night in Support of Rescue!

The Spring Quiz will be held on Saturday 17th March 2018 at the Normanton-On-Soar Village Hall.

Our Quizzes have proved to be very popular, even being described by one quizzer as "the best I've ever been to". This is, in no small part, to the efforts of trustees Geoff and Eileen Phillips who organize every aspect of the night.

Why not pop along and join in? Entry is £7.00 per person with a maximum of four to a team. Nibbles are included in the ticket price, sadly the bar is not!
Details from Geoff at 01509 674844 or e-mail
17.04.2018Agility Ridgies Team

Agility RidgieThe next meeting of the Agility Ridgies Team will take place on Tuesday 17th April in Melton Mowbray.

Contact Kerry at or via Agility Ridgies Facebook Page to book for the April session, entry is £10 per dog. Any excess over the cost of venue hire is donated to Rescue.
 Charity Hockey Team

Jolly Hockey SticksOur Kerry is at it again. Well, strictly speaking that's not true, the Girls at The Kennels are organising a Charity Hockey Evening in Sheffield, but it didn't take Kerry long to jump on that train! In fact I have heard that her enthusiasm enabled her to climb aboard the engine!

So, anyone interested in a spot of "Jolly Hockey Sticks" at some future date, please contact

All are welcome, experience and equipment not needed, just a sense of fun!

01.03.2018Rhodesian Ridgebacks Forever!! - Zip Wire Challenge

ZipwireWell they did it! Apart from one person who failed to show on the day, all of our "adrenaline junkies" completed the challenge. The "no show" place was manfully taken at the last minute by the unsuspecting spouse of one of the participants.Perhaps a special "gong" should be struck for bravery for presentation to that man, the redoubtable Mr Marc Hurn.

To date something in excess of four figures has been raised for the trust and towards the welfare of the dogs placed in our care.

Our thanks to all who sponsored, and those that took part in this madcap event. But of course our biggest thanks must go to architect and participant and founder of Rhodesian Ridgebacks Forever!!,...... Sue Johnson!

While I hear that most of those that conquered the wire are quietly continuing their rehab, I've also heard a whisper that Sue is currently working on another, even more, dastardly challenge! Tin hats everybody!!

Donations may still be made by privately messaging Sue through Facebook Messanger for Paypal details, or clicking on the following link for Virgin Money Giving

Here's to the next one...........
