Stourport Steam Rally

Many thanks to the organizers of the Stourport Steam Rally for last week end, always great fun. The pictures below show many enjoying their time spent there, including little Sky who won several Rosettes plus a go on the Tombola! 

Along with others, little Jack came along to say hello too, (he will be best remembered when he came into our care with little Jill) .

There is also a picture of a very thoughtful young girl who kindly donated some of her pocket to Forest Dog Rescue to help us continue to look after the dogs in our care...took my breathe away when one so young is so aware. 

Thank you to this incredible young caring soul and to all for your continued support :-)


Pets at Home

FDR was also presented with a cheque this afternoon from 'Pets at Home' totaling £522.05!

This money was raised by selling their own raffle tickets etc in store and the grand total was shared between 'Forest Dog Rescue' and 'Cat Protection'.

On behalf of all here at Forest Dog Rescue, a huge thank you 'Pets at Home' for your kindness and generosity, you do an amazing amount of hard work to help others.and we truly appreciate your 

assistance to help us to continue to help those who need it, please let us know when if we can help with your fabulous fundraising for others, it's always great to give something back too :-)

the Month!




Meet the very loving Wilma who was picked up as a stray so unfortunately no known history. Wilma seems to be a very affectionate girl and thinks everyone is her friend! 

She walks beautifully on the lead, plus she has been off the lead where she was an absolute star! she just stayed by your side until its OK to go further but soon comes back when called, she loves to have a good belly rub and roll around in the grass. 

She does know some of her basic commands such as 'sit' and 'down', she is such a people pleaser who loves to be told she's a good girl. She loves to play with her toys, often carrying her stuffed reindeer toy around with her :) .

She has walked round with different dogs at the kennels however we have found that she is not too fond of fellow Staffordshire Bull Terriers as she does tend to bark at them, so we would suggest she would be the only dog in the household.

Not cat tested and no children under the age of 5 years.

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

Thank you!
