Harvey's Army charity gets support from Pets Corner

Pets Corner is supporting charity Harvey’s Army following its recent involvement with popular prime time ITV show Surprise Surprise hosted by Holly Willoughby.

Harvey’s Army is a charity set up and run by Nina and Karen Blackburn, which helps to reunite lost pets with their owners.  

After being involved in a hunt for a lost poodle, Harvey, who was found run over on a motorway, Nina and Karen felt overwhelmed to take action and started an online petition to change the way the Highways Agency deals with animals hit by vehicles.

The petition gained over 120,000 signatures and led to a House of Commons debate and the passing of ‘Harvey’s Law’ making it compulsory for the Highways Agency to scan the microchip of any found dog, dead or alive, so the owners can be informed immediately.

Harvey’s Army now has a 100-strong team of volunteers who cover the whole of the UK. Nina, Karen and their ‘army’ work determinedly to find lost pets and reunite them with owners through any means possible.

Nina and Karen recently received the surprise of their lives when they were featured on ITV’s Surprise Surprise. The show that aired on Sunday 5th July at 8pm saw shocked Nina and Karen receive 100 microchip scanners, vital for finding owner information from lost pets, the opportunity to build a new smart phone app for their charity and £2,000 of products from Pets Corner to help look after the animals they rescue.

Dean Richmond, Managing Director of Pets Corner, commented: “Harvey’s Army does such an amazing job. I know first-hand that losing a pet is heart-breaking as several years ago I lost my dog and even though it was only for a matter of hours it was the worst six hours of my life. We are very proud to be supporting this great cause and hope that our donation provides some comfort to the pets missing their owners.”

Nina and Karen added: “We were amazed to be featured on ITV’s Surprise Surprise and we’re really humbled to have been chosen. We would like to say thank you to Pets Corner for the amazing donation, they will make a huge difference to our work.”
