News Update

Coronavirus Update

Due to the current lockdown and with Christmas on the horizon, we won’t be rehoming any dogs in November and December. However, please contact us if you have any queries about any of the dogs we have for adoption. Deails can be found at: http://www.ryedaledogrescue.com/category/dogs-we-have-at-the-moment/

Rehoming Area

Thank you to everyone who continues to show an interest in rehoming from RDR. We’re very happy to hear from you, even though we’re not rehoming until the new year. Please note that we only rehome dogs within a 30 mile radius of Malton and Norton, and won’t be able to reconsider your application if you live outside that area. One of our  greatest strengths is that we’re a  local, volunteer-run,  charity and by limiting the area we rehome to, allows us to provide the best support for our dogs and you.

Pop-up Market: Kirbymoorside 9th December 2020

The RDR Wombles are desperate to get out and about again after another month long lockdown. Our first chance is on Wednesday 9th December at Kirbymoorside Market. We’ll be there, along with a few other local charities, raising money for our favourite cause.

Dave The American Bulldog

Due to a change in circumstances we are helping to find a loving new home for Dave a five year old American Bulldog.  He has lived with the same family from being a young puppy and is child and dog friendly.  His owner tells us he is fully vaccinated, housetrained and walks well on a loose lead.  He is very much a family pet who loves attention and cuddles.  Although Dave is still with his owner at present a homecheck by RDR would precede any rehoming/adoption.  In the first instance please make direct contact with his current owner on 07872 344793.

Welcome to Ryedale Dog Rescue. We’re a small charity run entirely by volunteers, with the goal of rehoming abandoned and unwanted animals in Ryedale and East Yorkshire.

Please feel free to browse our site, where you’ll find:

  • information about upcoming events
  • details of dogs that need rehoming and information on the adoption process
  • ideas for how you can get involved
  • how to donate to us.

We’re never happier than when one of our dogs is rehomed, and love to hear about your happy endings.

If you have any queries or comments, we’d love to hear from you. You can email us at enquiries@ryedaledogrescue.com
