Old dogs are the best, foster one!

Our old dogs need foster homes like this one. They need fosters who can spoil them, keep them safe and warm and allow them some dignity in their golden years. A walk each day would be nice, but is not necessary, as long as they are safe and happy until they can go on to their new home. Please consider fostering or adopting one of our geriatric oldsters. They ask only for some love, comfort and food and in return give unconditional love. contact us!

 2012 Calendar

Support rescue and a local artist! Tiffany O'Brian, a fellow Rhodesian Ridgeback owner and lover has created this beautiful wall calendar featuring Rhodesian Ridgebacks from around Northern California in various Northern California locations. March features some of our very own rescue dogs and Tiffany has generously offered to donate 20% of her sales to rescue.

These calendars will make a great gift for the holidays! Select the link below to place your order now: http://butterflyandadogphotography.com/p916143572


Rudy, our gorgeous rescue boy who had two ruptured ACLs, is recovering from surgery #1. His right leg was operated on in March and he is doing well.

He has had his final x-ray check up on his plated leg and they were thrilled with his progress. He will be ready for his next surgery in June. We are raising funds for this surgery via Chip-In. To make a donation please click on this link:


All of the metal RRs that were donated to rescue in their entirety have been sold. Rescue received all proceeds from those sales.

You can now order the artwork from manikdezign@gmail.com and for each order a portion of that profit will be donated to rescue in the future.

Do ask about other designs, breeds and artwork. They are great!

 The sculpture stands three feet tall.

Letters like the one below really make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside

Just wanted to tell you thank you for having this adoption site! We adopted DeeDee and she is just a sweetheart! She has adapted well with us. She goes for walks and runs with my husband at least twice a day. She is eating alot better than at first and has gained 4 pounds even with the exercise. She is so much a part of our family we take her everywhere we can and would not trade her for anything.
She is in a good home here and we just love her.
Thank you for everything!
