Rhodesian Ridgeback Welfare Trust

The Registered Charity Dedicated to the Welfare of the Rhodesian Ridgeback

The Rhodesian Ridgeback Welfare Trust (RRWT) was formed in 1994 to relieve the suffering and distress of Rhodesian Ridgebacks who are in need, and to provide rehoming if necessary. The Welfare Trust is entirely dependent on the generosity of you our supporters and donors, to fund our activities.

We work quietly and professionally with the active involvement of all of the Rhodesian Ridgeback clubs in the UK to fulfill our common purpose, the welfare of all Rhodesian Ridgebacks. If you can, please make a donation to help us.

To hear more about us, just subscribe to our regular emails send an email to info@rrwt.org

To fulfill our mission to find new homes for pure-bred Ridgebacks that are unable to remain with their current owners, the Trust provide kennels or sanctuaries for the reception and care of rescued Rhodesian Ridgebacks, together with veterinary care and welfare support if required.

Over the years the Welfare Trust has developed procedures which, with careful home-checking and dog assessment, aim to place each individual dog in an appropriate caring home for the rest of their life. The Trust is supported by volunteers throughout the country who assess dogs, check homes, help with transport, emergency kenneling or fostering.
