Dog of


Mars Pet Care UK

Huge Thank You to Mars Pet Care UK for the wonderful grant of £10,000 from Pedigree and Whiskers Feeding Better Futures.
The money will go towards a new block of 6 kennels with runs for our smaller dogs, which will make such a difference to them while they are waiting for their forever homes.
We are hoping we will be able to start the new project later on this year.
Once again, thank you to all at Mars Pet Care, your grant is really appreciated.

“Mayors Making” 9th May 2018

We shared a completely new experience in the Town Hall in Kidderminster at the “Mayors Making” evening last night.
Martin Stooke who is now the new Mayor for Kidderminster 2018/2019, kindly invited his 3 chosen Charities for 2018/2019, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Alzheimer’s and Forest Dog Rescue!
We were aware of Martins kindness awhile back but now it’s official lol.We would like to thank Martin, Sharon and Nikki for all their help and support setting things up so far such as calendar dates etc and for looking after everyone during the evening, plus giving us the opportunity to meet 2 other incredible charities who do such great work.
It was a very enjoyable evening meeting new people as the 3 chosen charities came together to share their information and experiences, thank you all and we look forward to meeting up again soon. 

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

APPROX 12 Months

This gorgeous boy has come into us from another rescue where he found as a stray so unfortunately no previous history is known.

Since being with us we have found that he has a fantastic temperament with other dogs. His leadwork has improved no end since he has been with us and he now walks beautifully with volunteers on his halti head collar. He probably has a bit of hound in him as he uses his nose a lot- sniffing every blade of grass along the way!

Honda loves to charge around the playpen but can get over excited and mouth, it can be hard for him to calm down. This is probably just that he has never grown out of his puppy behaviour as he is still very young, he just needs to learn some boundaries and he really does enjoy some fuss and cuddles.

He does have bandy front legs bless him but that doesn't hinder him in any way so we are looking for an active family for this lad who will continue his training and show him the world. A real happy go lucky fellow who would love a chance to have a family to call his own :)

Not cat tested and older children only due to his boisterous nature.

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

Thank you!
