Mission: Ridgeback Trust, Inc was started in 1998 to promote the well being of purebred Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization our mission is to prevent the indiscriminant breeding of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. We help at-risk Ridgebacks from many sources including pet shops, private owners, estate sales and commercial breeders. Dogs purchased by RTI are placed into the care of rescue organizations for needed veterinary care including neutering, fostering and placement into permanent homes as loving family pets. As an all-volunteer organization we depend on the generosity of individual donors and sales of our exclusive merchandise.
