Linden, an adorable Havanese, was our first short-term foster dog. We were able to provide him with a loving home for a few days while his owner was in hospital and he fitted in perfectly.

We first came across Harvey's Army when Hurst Green dog, Dorris, went missing on February 14th 2017. Following a week of searching by the whole community, Dorris was found and very happily reunited with her owner. We now call February 21st "Dorris Day." Harvey's Army were incredibly supportive with their advice and practical help in the search for Dorris.
We were so impressed with this charity, that we pledged to support Harvey's Army. We held a fundraising event in October 2019, a dog first aid course. Information about donating to Harvey's Army can be found on their fundraising page on Facebook. Donations help to provide vital equipment for searching for, and scanning lost and found pets.
We hosted a charity dog first aid course in May 2019 to raise awareness and funding for the Alabama Rot Research Fund Charity.
This charity promotes vital research into all aspects of the disease known as Alabama Rot (cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy or CRGV) in dogs, with the aim of advancing education in the disease and guiding treatment and prevention strategies to relieve the suffering of dogs, who are in need of care and attention. As well as raising money for this charity, the dog first aid course helped train dog owners and professionals in dog first aid skills.
Harvey's Army is a charity specialising in reuniting lost and found pets.
When little Harvey went missing, his owners spent 13 weeks looking for him, to find very sadly that he had been killed on a motorway only a few minutes after he disappeared. There were no requirements in place for the Highways Agency to inform the owners of his demise. The Harvey's Army Charity was set up to campaign for better laws to require authorities to scan pets and inform owners. They consist of many volunteers in the UK who are equipped with scanners, and help with lost pet publicity campaigns.
Harvey's Army is a Registered Charity, No. 1157650.
