To learn about events and activities for Rhodesian Ridgebacks and their owners in your area, please visit the homepages of the San Diego Rhodesian Ridgeback Club ("SDRRC") and the Orange Coast Rhodesian Ridgeback Club ("OCRRC").

RIDGEBACK MIXES Sadly, because of a lack of resources, we are unable to take in any Ridgeback mixed-breed dogs at this time. If you know of a Ridgeback mix needing help, please contact local rescue groups to see if help for that dog can be obtained. Thank you for your understanding.

HELP WANTED!!! California is in need of foster homes to help ensure the success of our rescue program. The position entails daily in-home care of dogs, follow up visits with veterinarians, and evaluating dogs for placement. Knowledge of the breed is essential. If you are interested in helping, please fill out a volunteer application. A rescue coordinator will contact you shortly. Thanks for helping us help the Ridgebacks!
