Kimani Kennels - A legacy of healthy, beautiful Rhodesian Ridgebacks... by design!

For over 40 years the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) has been the authority for genetic screening of purebred dogs. The OFA mission statement, "To improve the health and well being of companion animals through a reduction in the incidence of genetic disease", reflects the breeder's inherent responsibility to breed animals that are, to the greatest extent possible, free from genetic disease. Vigilance and OFA screening are the most potent tools available to the breeder in the endless pursuit of this goal.

Paralleling the OFA's progress over those 40 years has been Kimani's participation in OFA screening. Ch. Weecha’s Kimani of Mohridge was among the first fifty dogs screened by the OFA in the 1960's. And recently a new milestone has been achieved... Kimani’s Motion Picture II has become the 1,000,000th dog screened by the OFA!

Congratulations to our co-owners Patricia Hoffman and Marion Niscia on this important piece of Ridgeback health history!
