 A Year at Forest Dog Rescue 2017

Thank you to everyone for your hard work, kindness and support during 2017, the past years and hopefully the future.

All Volunteers from various area's which include the shops, the kennels, fundraising events, people we hardly ever see but are working away in their chosen way, you are all amazing people and we wouldn't be able to do half the things we do without you.

Thank you also to our steadfast Sponsors who continue to support us regardless of difficult times for many.

Also not forgetting people who donate as and when they are happy and so.

We are so inspired by you all and the rescue continues to breath with everything you do.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks’ on behalf of everyone at Forest Dog Rescue including those who are now living the life they should be.

Wishing each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year, we look forward to seeing you all again soon, until then take care and enjoy :-)

Car Boot

Well we made it! 

Thank you to everyone for coming along to the last Car Boot for 2017. We’ve enjoyed them all and though the next one seems such a way off, it’ll come round soon enough. 

Special huge Thank you to Debbie, Joy, Jane, kathryn and Kathleen for coming along and serving up all your delicious delights, many happy and contented smiles, well done.

Again, please accept our heartfelt thanks not only for today but for every moment you devote your time to help raise funds to improve the lives of others, words can never express our appreciation but hopefully their smiling faces and happy updates will. 

Also many thanks to all our volunteers and staff who carry on regardless, we know these days can be quite challenging at times but you all seem to come through smiling, thank you all. 

Well that’s it for now, we hope booters and buyers all had a good day too and we look for to seeing you again in April 2018!


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




This stunner was brought in as a stray and claimed but thought he quite liked it here and decided to visit for a second time but unfortunately his owner decided not to claim him again. 

He is such a good lad, amazing temperament, lovely to walk on the lead and seems good with other dogs that he has met. Has been used as a working dog so probably wouldn't be great in a home with small furry creatures but we haven't officially tested that out as yet. 

Loves a fuss and cuddles and is really chilled although he now coming out of his shell. Spends most of time spark out in his bed but really enjoys his walks so a fairly active family would suit him.

No cats, no children under 5 years

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