25.02.2009 Rescue Report

During the last year a total of 67 Ridgebacks have been re-homed by Midlands & Northern Rescue. The vast majority of these having settled immediately with their new owners.

Our financial position is much improved from our impoverished state of this time last year and thanks are due to all our friends and supporters who helped in whatever way to achieve this. However, with the current financial climate it is expected that further demands will be made on our resources. We cannot afford to become financially complacent and to this end any further help and support that you can give will be extremely welcome.

One innovation that has already been implemented is the "Small Change Bucket" which will be in evidence at all of our events!

Breed Council

The Breed Council representing all four Rhodesian Ridgeback Clubs in Britain meets twice a year to discuss all Rhodesian Ridgeback related issues. Its function is to collate the collective views of all clubs and present them to The Kennel Club. News of The Breed Council activities will be posted as available.


Discover Dogs

Discover Dogs is becoming increasingly popular. In future on ridgeback day at Crufts, the stand will be manned, and ridgebacked, by some of our Rescue Rhodesian Ridgebacks (check out their stories). We also attend Discover Dogs at Earls Court, London, in November and in May we represent Rhodesian Ridgebacks at the "All About Dogs" exhibition in Essex. We always need people to help with these events so if you would care to volunteer your services for a couple of hours it will alleviate the strain on the regulars who do a full days stint, which is unfair on their Ridgebacks. With hundreds of people milling around asking questions, some sensible, some ridiculous, even Ridgebacks get tired out. As long as your dog is "bombproof" and you like talking (and lets face it what RR owner doesn't) Please offer to help.
