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

Is looking for his new home


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.

We are looking for Photos to feature on the cards (they must be your own work or you must have permission to submit them. They need to be of a high enough resolution to be printed on the cards)

The winning POEM will be superimposed over the winning PHOTOGRAPH in each category, printed up and on sale with all profits going to Ridgeback Rescue. Cards will be available to purchase either as a set, or singularly.

Fees can be paid via the Virgin Money Giving  or you can simply text POEM01 £5 (That's capital POEM then a zero and a number one, then a space and £5) to 70070 to pay by phone instead. Texts will cost your standard rate plus the £5 you are donating to Rescue.

When: SUNDAY 29 JULY 2018 - 6PM - 9PM
Cost: Players £5, Spectators £10
Where: Abbeydale Sports Club, Abbeydale Rd South Sheffield, S17 3LJ

We are looking for people to represent Ridgeback Rescue at a FUN charity hockey event (not on ice as the picture would suggest!). The key word here people is "FUN" so you don't need to be an expert, have the kit or know what you're doing. If you would like to be on the team (and we really hope you will want to be part of the chaos) please let us know. We are looking for at least 5 people but obviously the more people we have, the more subs we can make and the better the atmosphere and experience will be.

The Charities involved are our own Ridgeback Rescue, C Four Paws and the NAYBR (Boxer Rescue).

Charity Hockey Challenge

So, anyone interested in a spot of "Jolly Hockey Sticks" please contact
