Rhodesian Ridgebacks Needing New Homes

While we do our best to give an honest opinion of all dogs that need re-homing, it must be stressed that all too often details which accompany these recycled Ridgebacks are at best sketchy and sometimes incorrect. However, below are photographs and brief details of just a few of the dogs that are looking for new homes.

Amba and Luca - Currently at Home

Age 11 Years

Age 6 Years

Due to a devastating change in their current owners' lives, Amba and Luca are looking for a new home together. Luca has never known life without Amba.

Neither have proved destructive in the past and have on occasion been left together for up to six hours. As with many ridgebacks both are afraid of fireworks and thunder.

Amba can be nervous of sudden movements, this relates to her past life before being rescued by her current owners. She will need a quiet home without young children. Luca, the second part of this double act, is a big softie who loves to be cuddled.

Can you help these two in their hour of need?

10th August 2017

For more information email

Amba and Luca come with 5 weeks Free Pet Insurance - More information on the "Importance of Pet Insurance Page"


Can you offer one of these unfortunates a second chance of enjoying a loving home? Do you have room in your heart and your home to offer that second chance? Should you feel that you do then please contact our

Recently Re-Homed Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Should you feel that you are not in a position to be able to offer one of these dogs a home it is possible to help in other ways. Various events are arranged each year in support of Rescue including a Christmas Party and Spring/Summer Fun Day. Fun and games are the order of the day at both events with good food and social ridgeback chat in abundance. For the more adventurous there is even a chance to take part in agility; no, not for humans, just the dogs, have you seen our committee!!!!

Apart from supporting these social occasions you may alternatively, or indeed as well as, like to make a monetary donation to Rescue funds. This can be made as a one off payment or a monthly payment for which a standing order can be set up. Should this idea tickle your fancy please contact our treasurer -

Our re-homing policy dictates that:-

Taking on an adult Ridgeback can be very rewarding for both parties. Experience shows the vast majority of adoptions are happy and successful. Few dogs are un-trainable and will respond to firm sensitive handling coupled with kindness and affection. Once you have gained their confidence and respect they will reward you with affection, loyalty and a great deal of enjoyment.

If you need help or advice we are only a telephone call away.
