Both Trustees and staff members from the kennels all enjoyed the 2nd Fashion Show organised by Lisa Cubberley this year, this time it was held at the Castle Hill Casino in Dudley.
We know Lisa doesn't like being in the limelight and always says its all about the dogs and yes she is right but without the kindness and hard work from people like Lisa and many others like her, we couldn't continue to help the dogs that come into our care.
We all thank you from the very heart of FDR for all you have done this year alone on our behalf, you have raised a staggering sum totalling approx £2300, well done!


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.

Meet the super adorable Stella who is looking for a new family due to her owner having to work away. Stella is a friendly dog and loves everyone she meets. 
Her lead walking is definitely improving and she seems happy  when other dogs pass by and has come nose to nose with Suki, tail wagging. 
Stella loves time in the playpen and simply loves a squeaky toy, although they don't last very long bless her.
While in the top field and off the lead, Stella will have a short bomb round but then enjoys nothing more than a good old wriggle on her back in the grass. She doesn't venture far away from her walker but when she does, her recall isn't at its best just yet lol. 
This adorable soul will make a comforting and fun companion in the right family.

No to cats and no children under the age of 5. 

If you think you can offer Stella the home she so deserves, please contact the kennels on

Thank you!
