It's Calendar Time...........

In truth it's a little bit past calendar time, we would normally launch this in the Spring, but Spring seems to have passed us by this year........

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 2018 RidgebackRescue 25th June 2017!

If you would you like your dogs to feature in our 2018 Calendar, it's time to get snapping.

There are a few rules all of which can be found Here T&C's.

Only "landscape" oriented pictures are acceptable and preferably 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

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

31.01.2017Husky 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.

To recap, sponsorship donations in support of Kay on our behalf may be made here
