Thank You For Your Interest In Adopting

Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued Rhodesian Ridgeback from our rescue, Ridgeback Rescue of the United States (RRUS).  We are a volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of surrendered or mistreated Rhodesian Ridgebacks. 

We take the rescue, fostering, rehabbing and rehoming of these Ridgebacks very seriously.  We take pride in making sure the right dog gets the right family as their forever home. It is RRUS POLICY that we do not fly or ship dogs to a potential home; an applicant must personally pick up the dog from the foster home.  We wanted to be certain that you would be able to travel to wherever a dog is being fostered.  

We ask that all humans and animals who currently live in the house meet the dog.  Would you able to do this? How far are you willing to travel?

Here is a link to our available dogs: Feel free to continue to visit our website because we post new dogs as they are ready for adoption.

If you see another particular dog you are interested in, feel free to contact us at:
