BBC Hereford & Worcester Radio.

Thank you to all who joined in the fun at the Wyre Forest Visitors Centre organised by
BBC Hereford & Worcester Radio. It was s great opportunity to have lots of fun and to get some of our dogs out there wearing their little "Adopt me" jackets! Thank you to all the incredible volunteers who came along to walk these gorgeous dogs and hopefully help them to find their new family, all behaved beautifully. A huge thank you to all the people who were there supporting Forest Dog Rescue in their own way such as Kath & Kathryn with their amazing jams, treats and Easter gifts, Zaza Shelley for her outstanding artwork and generosity, also special thanks to Malcolm Boyden and BBC Hereford & Worcester for organising such a great day out for all the family :)

23rd March 2017 Ludlow Shop Grand opening!!!
Finally after many hours of endless hard work, the proud staff and volunteers happily opened the doors to the new Ludlow shop at 10am this morning.
We can never thank everyone enough for the time spent getting this shop ship shape and looking absolutely amazing! 
So much time, hard graft and dedication by so many has finally bought an enormous amount of pride to the outcome of it all.
Linda and her incredible team and to those who have all truly stepped up to help with the fittings, painting, laying the floor, moving all from the old shop...the list goes on, we thank you all.:)

We do try to thank everyone for their kindness and continued support towards FDR and hopefully we don't miss anyone, nothing is taken for granted and we consider this charity to be truly blessed by so many, thank you each and everyone of you 


Why not visit our charity shops where you can buy quality items at bargain prices and you'll be supporting Forest Dog Rescue at the same time! 
We now have wristbands and car stickers too.

the Month


Meet the noble gentleman Rock, who was found wandering and brought to us by the dog warden. He had no collar or tag and was not micro-chipped so we couldn't locate an owner and no-one came looking for him so he has now joined our ever growing family at the kennels.
His greying muzzle gives the impression he is getting on in years however don't let this fool you, his teeth only put him at 3-4 years. Not a pipe and slippers guy yet then!
He is a little excitable when he first comes out of the kennel but after a fuss he quickly settles down and is good on the lead. 
You would think he would love a blast in the playpen when off his lead but he actually prefers to follow you around and have a good old sniff about! Our Rock definitely prefers the more chilled out lifestyle although saying that he has discovered he quite like chasing the tennis ball around the field. He has walked around with our other dogs and hasn't paid much attention to them at all. 
He loves his food and although he is fine around food and not aggressive, we have discovered that he is a bit of a thief so work would need to be done in this area. Definitely no leaving Sunday dinner on the side as it wouldn't be there very long!  Rock is really great with people and we feel that he will be a lovely addition to any family, especially those with a fire for him to sprawl out in front of :)
Not cat tested and no children under 5 years.

If you think you can offer Rock the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on

Thank you!
