Dog of


2016 Kindness

A very sincere thank you for all the kindness and generosity shown to Forest Dog Rescue during 2016.

Everyone from friends, volunteers, staff and trustees have all worked so hard again through the year, a few ups and downs but we all survive and carry on, the reward is priceless, 333 more happy dogs now living a wonderful life.
Thank you  to everyone who got involved one way or another and lets hope 2017 will be as good, if not even better. :)  

Kath & Kathryn Berrow

Also a very special thank you to Kath and Kathryn Jam for their dedication towards FDR, including Kath's dad who works silently in the background peeling endless sacks of onions for pickling. Over the year they have created so many different items and have practically sold out at every event they have attended!
In turn they raised a spectacular total of £2027.36 on behalf of FDR.
These lovely people also raise funds for other causes too which shows how thoughtful and hard working they all are...they are so well known by many for their selection of jams, jellies and pickled delights, they already have orders for 2017!

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

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 likes 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
