We had another amazing group of people visit us today..the ."LUCKY 7 SCOOTER CLUB"

These lovely people fund raise for various charities and today we were honoured to have been one of them..

Tracey and her colleagues have been collecting food, blankets, towels and toys since last January and came to pass it all over to us today for the dogs in our care.

At least 35 to 40 kind, fun loving people have raised funds totalling £220 of which was used to purchase food etc, plus there was another £135 cash which came from different members plus our new found friends from the Black Star in Stourport (special hug to Alfie and Charlie please guys) thank you all for your kindness and generosity.Please accept our heartfelt thanks Tracey please pass on to all your incredible and so cheerful colleagues, really amazing troupe of people thank you 

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 

Thank you to Cath and Mick for an amazing donations from 'Cath and Mick' of food of all varieties, duvets, bedding.

Also  to Bella (formerly Opal) and her family for a huge pack of tinned food for the dogs in our care - thank you all so much :)

Mike Smith Guitar Academy Students

Last Saturday evening (11 June, Kidderminster Town Hall) we had the pleasure of listening to a group of very talented musical students of all ages, all have been guided and taught by the Mike Smith They truly did him proud including his daughter Hollie along with another female vocalist, Charlotte!

The students had to learn given tracks by CD, then get up on stage and come together as a band and play their hearts out with no previous rehearsals at all with other members, what an astonishing achievement this turned out to be.

It’s no easy task to get up on stage and just get on with it so to speak, even the compere (Jeremy Brett) had to fill in with 3 minutes between each song totally unrehearsed! Well done Jeremy you did a really good job lol.

During a sort of interval, we were entertained by Pat Aston, he is also one of Mikes acoustic students and did 4 songs completely on his own, so relaxed!

Forest Dog Rescue would like to pass on their heartfelt thanks to each and every one who made this evening such a success, we’re guessing Mike has endured a few sleepless nights while getting all this together, well done Mike and thank you so much, you must be so proud.


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.

Lovely boy Lilt has found himself looking for a new home as he was brought in as a stray along with his fellow sight hound friend Dream the Lucher.

We have found that he is marvellous on the lead and goes out with all of our volunteer walkers, he will walk beautifully by your side - you almost have to check he is still there!

We have let him off in our playpen where he enjoys doing hoolies at full speed in the sand and although he loves to chase toys (specially soft ones) he clearly is not a retriever as he looks at you gone out when you ask him to bring it back! :) 

He certainly likes his home comforts as you often see him curled up in his big comfy bed during the day.

Lilt does seem to get on with other dogs as pictured below with Dream, he has also walked around with other varieties of dogs and hasn't batted an eyelid, taking it all in his stride. 

He is a very affectionate lad who loves a good back scratch and is also partial to jumping up gently for a human hug!

Not cat tested and no children under 5.

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

Thank you!
