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.
