We require that anyone interested in adopting a Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue fill out an application. We ask these questions for good reason: they play a big role in the final decision. We ask that you take the application process seriously and answer all questions as fully as possible.

Your application also helps us get to know you, and helps us find the right dog for you and your lifestyle.

Our placement policy requires prospective owners to have (or be willing to obtain) a working knowledge of the breed. Many people are attracted by the breed's appearance, but have little or no idea of its traits or temperament. We strongly urge all interested people to do their research: read about it, talk to other owners, or visit breeders.

You have two ways of getting your adoption application to us:
• Online application
• Download a PDF application and fax, email or mail

Once we have your application, we will contact you to conduct a telephone interview. At some point a home check will also be performed. We can get to know each other a little more and get the process of finding the right dog for you underway!

Please note: While we update the available dogs as much as possible, we give no guarantee that the dog you have listed on your application will be available. We encourage you to call us and check on the status of the dog.
