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



Diesel is looking for a 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 Rescue Support and 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, Janice, 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.






Upcoming Fundraising Events

 Husky Trail Arctic Challenge - 24th to 31st March 2017
Ridgeback Rescue Supporter Kay Pettengell is undertaking the arduous Husky Trail Arctic Challenge to raise funds for two charities (one of which is our own) in memory of her Ridgeback, Odin, and her general love of animals. This enterprise involves taking a team of dogs 260Km sledding across the frozen lakes of the Arctic. But let her tell it in her own words.............

Husky Trai Arctic Challenge"I am doing a challenge next year in loving memory of my beautiful Ridgeback Odin and for the love of animals and dogs, it's "The Husky Trail Arctic challenge" where we take a team of dogs 260KM sledding across the frozen lakes of the Arctic. I would like to raise as much money as possible for animal rescue.

The two charities I am raising money for are Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support & Rescue Trust and New Hope animal rescue in Abbey Wood South East London.

Helping to raise money for two wonderful charities in both the South and North of England.

Please click on the links below to read about these wonderful charities both whom are very small and rely on donations to help keep saving lives.

Thank you ever so much for your kind and thoughtful donation. It is much appreciated by these wonderful charities and will make a world of difference for the wellbeing of these lovely animals. I would be most grateful if you could kindly share this with as many people as you can.

With love Kay X"

Our thanks to Kay for her efforts, not to mention her bravery in attempting this challenge.
