Welcome to the Bay Area Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (BARRC). BARRC was started in April 1997. BARRC is a non-profit club with the intent to assist in Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue and to encourage and promote quality in the breeding of pure-bred Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
Our membership consists of families owned by Ridgebacks from Santa Rosa to Monterey to Sacramento. We urge our members and breeders to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouraging sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, obedience trials, tracking tests, field trials, and other dog-related events.
We hope this website answers your questions about Rhodesian Ridgebacks in the San Francisco bay area. We encourage you to contact breeders on the Breeder Directory for more information about the breed.
We are waiving all membership fees until the end of 2021! Non-voting members who
want to become voting members must pay the difference ($10).
You are always welcome to donate to the BARRC General Fund or to Rescue.
