It’s hip hip hooray for poorly Harvey
A POORLY puppy will get two vital hip operations thanks to the generosity of EADT readers.
Hundreds of people pulled together to pledge support for playful chocolate Labrador Harvey, after reading about his severe hip condition in the EADT.
Having raised more than �3,000, the loveable pooch will undergo the two operations needed to help improve his condition.
Harvey, who is just eight months old, was taken into the RSPCA Suffolk East and Ipswich Branch, at Martlesham Heath, near Ipswich, at the beginning of June after his owners became unable to cope with his mischievous nature.
Kieron Adams, branch manager, said: “We were doing so well because of the generosity of Suffolk residents, but it exceeded our expectations when we opened the post earlier this week and there was a cheque for �1,000.”

“We had a foster family come forward, which is amazing because it means that he can really settle down somewhere,” she said.

“It just seems that everything has happened at once and he really does deserve it because he is such a great character.”
Another Suffolk resident has also shown an act of kindness in letting Harvey use her hydrotherapy swimming pool so that he can build his muscle strength.
