Harvey's Hope Animal Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that exists to rescue, re-home, and rehabilitate homeless, unwanted, abused, and neglected dogs and place them in loving and responsible forever homes.
Harvey-Dent, formerly “Shermy,” was dumped at a high-kill shelter in Texas with his mama and siblings. They were pulled from the shelter by BARRK Animal Rescue and placed into foster care. Next, they were transferred to Georgia. Harvey contracted Parvovirus on the way up. A very common, $12 vaccine as a puppy could have prevented this. 90% of puppies who do not get treatment for Parvo die. Thanks to Dr. Terry and the amazing staff at Lake Hartwell Veterinary Hospital, Harvey made a full recovery.
He arrived in our home early May of 2018. It only took two weeks before we were completely smitten with this little 11lb puppy. Sweet is an understatement. All Harvey wanted to do was please us- he would do ANYTHING for a pet or “good boy.” To this day, Harvey is part of our welcoming committee. Whenever a new dog comes to the house, he spends the first few nights sleeping beside their crate. He has been snapped at and slapped dozens of time, but he has made it his job to make every dog feel like they have a friend and safe home.
Committed to change
Gabriele and the whole team at HHAR aim to decrease the euthanasia rates of our high-kill shelter partners by promoting adoption and educating the public on the importance of spaying/neutering and microchipping their pets.
We strive to maintain a network of dependable foster families, capable veterinarians, and experienced trainers to ensure preparedness of our rescued pets for healthy, fulfilling lives in their adoptive homes. *Licensed in NH, MA and RI
