Dogs of


Meet Ozzy! FOXY



Foxy is a lovely boy who came to us as a stray.


However, we do know some history on him. Foxy will need a strong and experienced owner, as he has shown that he can occasionally be mischievous. 

Foxy needs a home where there are no other pets and no children. 

He very willful and will need an owner that will teach him his boundaries and keep on top of his behavior. 

Under the right instruction, Foxy is good on the lead. 

He is also very food orientated.

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

Thank you!





Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this wonderful fun packed day!
We must praise our wonderful staff and volunteer walkers for keeping calm and carrying on with their day under very busy circumstances, it's always a distraction for the dogs in our care when we get so many visitors, great for most because they too love to join in the fun plus the tasty treats too at the end of the day. Some get better than that too, the lucky ones find their forever family in the crowds!

Thanks also to the Mayor of Kidderminster for attending our special day, Elizabeth Cooke, FDR's wonderful youngsters Ellie and Kate, Cindy and Linda Debbie with her friends Helen, Rob and Kirsty, our very entertaining judges and compare, Mary (Posh Pawss) Becky and Natalie, Tony and his best pal for the great selection of music, Sue and Neil for the funloving Agility, Sam from Bliss Gate Training for the great demonstrations and teamwork, Joan and Marie for assisting with the entries for the Dog Show, Dorothy and Clive on the gate and finally, every single one of you for coming along and giving your support, you're great and we hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we did!


Far Forest Society Countryside Show 

After a very wet and soggy start to the day, everything started to fall into place, including the sunshine!

Fabulous turn out considering the weather forecast but all dug their heels in and enjoyed a fun packed day, (including the van that came down the hill sidways in the mud! Well done to the driver there, soon got it back under control lol)

We have many to thank for a very entertaining and successful fund raising event which as always turns into yet another extraordinary day;

We always acknowledge the fact; we would not have a Charity, let alone all these wonderful events if we didn’t have you and many others standing by our side, thank you all so very much.

And finally, thank you to Dave Bell and the committee for organising such a fabulous family day out and inviting us to be part of it, always a great joy to join in. :-)

Thank you to all the organisers of the 'Button Oak Fete' for a lovely afternoon spent in your company, plus the opportunity to make new friends too.


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.

Meet Rex!




This bundle of fun came into rescue as a stray so no history unfortunately.


She is a well built girl who is a little strong on the lead and she has just started lead training, so a work in progress. 

She is into everything, very alert with boundless energy. 

Great with people and has no reaction to other dogs while walking. 

Not cat tested and no children under 5 years. Would suit an active, fun family

If you think you can offer Izzy the home she so deserves, please contact the kennels on
