Thank you all so much!And there’s more, they’re doing it all over again through 2019!

Thanks again everyone!

Christmas Doggie Hampers

A massive thank you to Kathryn & Kath (well known as our lovely jam n pickles ladies) for their hard work, support and kindness towards Forest Dog Rescue once again.
They put together 7  beautiful Hampers to be raffled off just before Christmas.
With the help of the Black Boy (Wyre Hill), the Black Star in Stourport, Bark Hill Pet Supples at the De Beers Garden Centre, Arena Hairdressers in Stourbridge and Severnedge Vets in Cleobury they raised a truly magnificent £754 in total!
Thank you to all who bought raffle tickets and offered their individual support to this wonderful achievement, many congratulations to all the winners! 
Thanks again Kath and Kathryn, your new found creation, look forward to seeing you all again soon, well done!

Thank you to all who contribute in their chosen way, we are humbled by your enthusiasm, kindness and dedication. We couldn't do half we do without you, thank you so much :)
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


This handsome young fella has come to us with his mum Mercedes from another rescue so we have little history on him. When he first came in along with his mum and sister, he was very bouncy. We made the decision to give him his own kennel which scared him a little for the first day or so but we are now starting to see the true Benz :)

In a nutshell, this dog is really just an overgrown big soppy puppy!!! All he really wants to do is be cuddled and have loads and loads of human attention-possibly not something he has had in the past. We introduced him to a collar and lead and actually, he is doing really well!!! He glues himself to your hip and looks at you adoringly for most of his walk! We are now trying to encourage him to investigate his surroundings and have the confidence to have a sniff about. Benz is a blank canvas- he hasn't a bad bone in his body bless him-he just needs some time and training to give him the opportunity to become the outstanding pet we know he could be :)

Off the lead in the play pen, he doesn't really leave our side-this could well change over time as his confidence grows and it would be lovely to see him play and chase once he realises its OK to leave his human!

Although possibly not ideal as a first dog, we feel Benz does have the makings of a fantastic all round family dog, his friendly, cuddly temperament and willingness to please should make training classes a pleasure to attend. He is one we would love to see again in the future when he has discovered what the doggy world has to offer :)

If you have a bit of free time for training and are after a cuddly companion, then please do give us a call. It would be so good to see this gorgeous lad happy and settled.

Not cat tested, no children under 5 years

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

Thank you!
