Welcome to the Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support and Rescue Trust's Web Site.
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.
It's Calendar Time...........
In truth it's a little bit past calendar time, we would normally launch this in the Spring........ The seasons have been strange this year..... don't you think?
Anyhow, to the point, all you good people have come through for us in the past no matter how difficult the task. We need pictures of your dogs to star in our 2017 RidgebackRescue Calendar.........by 20th July 2016!
If you would you like your dogs to feature in our 2017 Calendar, it's time to get snapping.
There are a few rules all of which can be found Here T&C's.
Preferably pictures should be taken with a camera set at the highest resolution possible, and at a minimum of 300dpi (no, I don't really understand it either, but that's what the printer tells us!) I think most modern digital cameras should be capable of this. We have, in the past, been short on Winter/Christmas scenes, if you have any of those please send them in.
Photos should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
Naturally not all submitted pictures can be included, please don't be too despondent if your's is not selected. However, submitters of those which are selected will receive a calendar for free.
As usual, profits will go towards caring for ridgebacks that need our help!
Thank You, One and All

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.
