Sponsored Walk - 8/10/17

Sunday 8th October - Sponsored Walk!

Thank you to everyone for your support and donations :)

What an incredible turn out for this event!!

Enjoyed by so many we've been asked to do the same again next year, absolutely great!

Sunday 8th October - Sponsored Walk!
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible, no need for sponsor forms if you haven't managed to collect one , you can still join us for a minimum £5 donation.:)
The Shuttle states its a 4.5 km walk, the correct length is approx 4.5 miles, this does include the Marsh which may not be accessible (depends on Sally's verdict after she walks it beforehand), if not it will reduce the walk by approx 20 mins and maybe 3/4 of a mile. :)
Raising funds needed for 3 rescue dogs requiring major surgery Forest Dog Rescue take in dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes and many who have not had the best start in life. But every single one matters and they all deserve a second chance. The charity is totally reliant on donations and whilst regular fundraising and sponsorship helps to cover the typical monthly costs, sometimes there are special cases that just need more. With average vet bills alone tipping £3,000 every month, when dogs come in with severe injuries or health issues the charity must find other ways to fund raise the extra money.We currently have 3 dogs in kennels who all need major surgery to enable them to have their second chance at finding a loving forever home and living the life they deserve. Ari, a 5-year-old crossbreed has come to Forest Dog Rescue and needs at least one, possibly two, cruciate ligaments operated on to enable him to walk comfortably.Patch, a 3-year-old crossbreed came into rescue with a permanently dislocated knee cap and a bowed femur which is likely the result of a previous fracture. He needs surgery to repair the damage to his knee and leg so he can get his mobility back and live the rest of his life pain free.Pete, a 3-year-old lurcher has been in kennels for 5 months and started showing signs of lameness so has been under investigation at the local vet. He has already had an x-ray and a scan but now needs to be referred to a specialist for an MRI scan to ascertain the route of his problem.
We need to raise £4,000 to enable these dogs to have the treatment they so desperately need so we are organising a special Sponsored Walk on Sunday 8 October. The 4.5mile walk starts at the Lock Inn & Old Smithy Tearooms in Wolverley at 10.30am and everyone, including dogs, are welcome. Anyone who wants to take part and help us raise these much-needed funds can get sponsorship forms from our kennels in Far Forest, or either of our charity shops in Kidderminster or Ludlow. Alternatively, the form can be downloaded from our website (www.forest-dog-rescue.org.uk). We also welcome non-sponsored walkers and just ask for a minimum donation of £5. This is such a huge sum so we are really calling out to all dog lovers in the area to step out to help us give these dogs their second chanceā€,
