Welcome to the official website of
Forest Dog Rescue!

06.11.2020 *****LOCKDOWN UPDATE*****

Sadly we find ourselves having to close our gates once again, but all interest or enquiries can still be made by either calling 01299 269181 or email   

We know how much you care and we hope you all know just how much we care about our supporters but for now, can we ask that no further donations of any kind be left by the gates at the kennels please. 

Unfortunately the gates have been forced open just enough to pop some donations through and this has caused damage to the gates operating correctly, it takes longer to secure them properly.

We have also had to close both the shops too, (Kidderminster & Ludlow) so once again, can we please ask that no donations are left on their doorsteps as this will cause a safety hazard to the passing public. 

Thank you so much for your co-operation during this difficult time.
We will miss you all, fingers crossed it will only be for 4 weeks and we can get back to some form of normality.
Take care everyone and please stay safe, we'll see you soon  :) 

We are a small charity based in Worcestershire. 100% reliant on donations, all funds are used to provide for the dogs in our care. We provide much needed care and a safe haven to unwanted, abandoned and mistreated dogs primarily across the Midlands. Please join us in safeguarding their future!  We hope you enjoy browsing our website, whether you're looking for a dog to join your family, or you simply want to keep up with the great stories of dogs who have been re-homed or just to read about all our other charitable activities,

THANK YOU to all who have kindly donated to help us along during this extremely trying time for everyone.

We have received such kindness even when we know so many are going through such a difficult and testing time themselves.
A simple Thank you never seems enough to express how humbled we all feel.
We hope you know us well enough to know just how grateful we are and our deepest concern is to continue to keep dogs safe and well. Our work goes on and we'll do all in our power to keep it going.

Thanks again everyone, we hope the updates, photos and videos which go on to our facebook is also another way of showing our appreciation of your kindness.

Please take care and stay safe, we miss you and we're so looking forward to seeing you again as soon as the restrictions allow us to do so

****** REHOMED *****

We unfortunately had to welcome back BENNY this week, a 5 year old ex racing Greyhound. He was re-homed just over a year ago but has been returned due to separation anxiety :(

He is gorgeous boy (even with his bald bum bless him), super friendly who wants to say hello to everyone! 

Walks really well on the lead, travels well and is house-trained. 

He also gets on with other dogs but not cats!

He has been great since coming back into kennels but is very subdued which is understandable.

We are looking for someone who lives fairly locally and would be willing to work with our behaviourist to give Benny the best chance of overcoming his issues. 

If this is you please get in touch with the kennels on 01299 269181 and lets see if we can give this boy a real chance

No cats and no young children.

If you think you can offer BENNY the home she so deserves, please contact the kennels on
01299 269 181

Thank you!
