Virtual RR Walk 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Virtual Walk and helped us raise £220 for UK RR Rescue! We appreciate everyone's support! All funds raised by RRCS are split equally between Ridgeback Rescue and the RR Welfare Trust! 

Seen as we can’t all walk together given the current situation, why not join us virtually on Sunday 10th May for a socially distanced Ridgeback Walk and help us raise some much needed funds for the UK RR Rescue charities?


All you need to do is:

1. Take your Ridgeback(s) for a walk on Sunday 10th May (we are suggesting at 11am but if you can do it anytime that day that’s fine too) on your local walk

2. Take a photo of your dog(s) during the walk with or without their humans

3. Post the photo on our RRCS Facebook page telling us a bit about your dog and where you walked

4. Make a donation via PayPal to [email protected] & we’ll do the rest!


RRCS fundraise each year for the 2 registered RR Charities in the UK (RR Welfare Trust and Ridgeback Rescue) and donate to both equally. Thank you to everyone for your support , we couldn’t do it without you! Everyone is welcome to join in!

Email address check

Calling all members and judges on our Judges List - have we got your correct email address?  If you're not sure or need to update us please email us at [email protected] as we'll be communicating with you over email and don't want you to miss out on news! Thank you! 


Unfortunately all events are cancelled until further notice in light of the COVID-19 situation.  AGM is postponed, Open show and Spring Walk cancelled.  Please continue to enjoy walks with your beautiful dogs, I'm afraid we cannot organise group walks as that would be irresponsible and against government advice.  Further updates will be posted here and on our Facebook page.  Wishing all our members health and safety during this unprecedented time.

POSTPONED - AGM (was to be held in March)

CANCELLED - Open Show April 2020  

CANCELLED - Spring Walk 2020
