Charity number


Midlands & Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club has run a Rescue since the early 1990’s. In March 2012 the Rescue section of the Club was granted charitable status.

Every year 60+ Ridgebacks fall on hard times often through no fault of their own. The reasons are many and varied, from the genuine, such as the death of the owner, to the absurd, “he’s too big and Boisterous”, (he is a Ridgeback!). Some are as young as 12 weeks, some as old as 13 years.

Last year we re-homed over 65 Ridgebacks and helped an additional 17 to stay in their homes.

If you feel you have room in your heart and home to offer a ridgeback a second chance please contact the trustees. If you are unable to offer a permanent home but would still like to help please consider fostering, making a donation, ttending our events or even doing some fund raising for the Trust.

Everyone can do something large or small to help a Ridgeback have a second

Our Aims are: 

To provide appropriate care, protection, treatment, security and support for Rhodesian Ridgebacks; to relieve suffering and distress and where necessary to find suitable permanent new homes for such animals; and to educate and advise both Rhodesian Ridgeback owners and the wider public in matters pertaining to the health, welfare and the prevention of cruelty and suffering of these dogs in the Midlands and Northern areas of England.
