Harvey's Hope Animal Rescue

Foster Based throughout New England, NH, 03051

Shelter Description

Harvey's Hope Animal Rescue is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), 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. We 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. Lastly, 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.

Areas Served

We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a physical location. The dogs are not located in Hudson, NH- that is our home office. The dogs can be located anywhere in New England, or with one of our southern partners. Once the dog arrives in New England, the pre-approved adopter must travel to pick up the dog. We do not transport within New England or adopt outside of New England.

Adoption Instructions

Because we are committed to matching the animal to the right family, your application will be processed to adopt versus for the animal of your preference. The adoption process includes: adoption application, phone interview, vet and personal reference checks, home visit, a non-refundable deposit and adoption/donation fee, and an adoption contract. All resident pets must be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines to be considered to foster/adopt. We reserve the right to suggest other animals for adoption or deny this application for any reason if we feel the adoption is not in the best interest of the animal. The adoption fee for all dogs is $575. Please allow at least 1-2 weeks for processing as we are 100% volunteer-run. We receive multiple applications for each dog. Your dog of choice may not be available by the time your application is processed, but we will do our best to find another dog that will be a good fit for you. Please read each field and answer thoroughly. We look forward to reviewing your application soon! Breed selection is done in conjunction with the veterinarians (both southern and northern) and our fosters, and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well-educated decision from well-qualified staff. Sometimes, “hound mix” or “lab mix” is the only selection that can be made. Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you complete and submit an application before asking additional questions. We try very hard to include all available information in our bios and update them when new information becomes available. We are excited to help you find your new family member! However, as a reminder, Harvey’s Hope is operated 100% by volunteers and we do not have a physical facility for you to visit. Your application must be completed and approved by a HHAR Board member in order to bring a dog to New England. Our fosters open their hearts and homes to help rehabilitate animals, so we take their safety and personal time into account before arranging meet and greets. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete the application process. Thank you for understanding and we hope to chat soon!

Hi my name is Bach! I came up north late February and I have been with my foster family for a couple days now. I am quite little weighing in at just 20lbs at 4 months old. I may be little but I have plenty of energy and I am always on the move. I love to bounce around and play with my toys. I even give little play rumbles and grumbles when I roll around with my stuffies. I love kids and other dogs. My furry foster brother is my idol. I follow him around everywhere and just want to do everything he does. I give lots of kisses to my humans and crawl straight in their lap any chance I get. My two legged foster sister is 8 years old and she's really good at snuggles. I like her. I am very smart and learned very quickly to go potty outside. I may get into puppy trouble as I try to jump on everything and explore the world but I’m so cute you can hardly be mad! I am a very loving and gentle soul and I look forward to finding my forever family.    The musical pups are listed by the vet as hound mixes but likely have some terrier mixed in. They will be medium to large sized dogs when fully grown. They are currently in a New England foster home without cats.   Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England. All adopters must be pre-approved to arrange a meet and greet, and the adopter is expected to travel to the dog's location. We do not transport once the dogs arrive in New England. Applications must be submitted at HarveysHope.org for consideration. We estimate it will be 1-2 weeks before you hear from one of our volunteers. Thank you!  show less

Meet Benny! He’s an 11-12-year-old Beagle mix. Benny is one of the sweetest, cuddliest dogs we’ve ever met. He is always smiling and is nice to every human or dog he meets. He is so easy-going…all he wants to do is love you and keep you company. He’s very intuitive- if you seem sad or stressed, he does the most precious army crawl up to you and snuggles gently in your lap.   Benny has greeted every adult he’s met with a wagging tail and a smile, and he and our other senior dogs get along great and even snuggle with each other. We weren’t surprised to hear that his last foster said he also got along great with cats and older children. Benny is just a big ball of love! He has the biggest heart- and we don’t just mean that figuratively. The vet found that he has an enlarged heart, so he would fit best in a family that likes to take it easy, too. That doesn’t stop him from enjoying the outdoors, though. He loves to go on walks and to play in our yard. I imagine he will love spring and summer so he can bask outside in the sunlight.   Benny prefers not to be alone. He waits patiently in his crate if we leave the house and greets us with sweet yodels, tail-wags, and kisses when we come back. When we’re home, he follows us around the house like a  comforting little shadow. Once we settle down to work for a while, though, he will easily sleep in his bed for hours without disruption.   It seems clear to us that Benny spent most of his life in a loving home. He is totally potty trained (hasn’t had any accidents) and is great on a leash (no pulling). We imagine his last owner had a hard time resisting his puppy dog eyes, as he’s a little chunky, but we’re working on improving his diet and exercise so he is in his best health for his forever family.   All it takes is some good ear rubs to get Benny’s undying loyalty. If you’re looking for a low-key, loving companion, apply for Benny, and we promise, you’ll immediately fall in love.     Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England. All adopters must be pre-approved to arrange a meet and greet, and the adopter is expected to travel to the dog's location. We do not transport once the dogs arrive in New England.

Blizzard is a 5 year old husky and weighs about 55 lbs. He loves to be outside, and is excited to run around, but quickly settles down in the house. He is very affectionate and is always happy to give kisses and receive pets, or to chase a ball and play with dog toys. Blizzard is working on house training, but is crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is quickly learning basic commands and is a fast learner, especially when treats are involved!   Blizzard’s ideal family will be active and walk or hike with him at least twice a day. He would also make a good running buddy. The home will have an active dog for Blizzard to play and run with, and a large yard with 6ft fencing. While his first response is to be tough with other dogs, once he sees the dog won't play until he backs off, he settles right in—and it is important that he has a playmate. His future family will have dog-savvy kids, or a kid-free home, with no small animals that he would want to chase, and will understand that Blizzard is a vocal Husky. Blizzard’s adopter(s) will also understand how important it is for him to continue and be consistent with his training program. He has entered a 6-8 week board and train program and will be available for meets around April, but you can get pre approved to be his new family today!   Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England. All adopters must be pre-approved to arrange a meet and greet, and the adopter is expected to travel to the dog's location. We do not transport once the dogs arrive in New England.

Brahms is just too sweet and loves jumping in your lap and giving you lots of kisses. He’s also very playful and loves his toys. He’s always trying to get his brother Mozart and my dog to play with him. As soon as he met my dog, they were kissing through the gate and have been playing nonstop since. Except when it’s nap time and they cuddle together. He’s very smart and learned how to sit just from watching my dog and realizing it gets him treats. Now he loves to show off his “sitting”. He’s very curious and tries to be a part of everything you’re doing. He’s still working on his house training but with a little help, he’ll get there. My dog is trying to teach him. He’s been sleeping in his crate through the night and even when he’s woken up at night, he’s laid there and quietly played with his toys until he falls back asleep. When he’s in your lap, he loves belly rubs. This guy is gonna make some family very happy. -From his foster mom!   The Classical Music pups are approx. 4-5 mo old. They are listed by the vet as hound mixes but likely have some terrier mixed in. They will be medium to large sized dogs when fully grown.

Hi! I'm Buddy! I was a local owner surrender that they hold Harvey's I had worms. Come to find out, it was heartworm disease. Harvey's Hope did not hesitate and immediately started treatment. I'll be ready for adoption mid February. I need to stay within 45min of my overseeing vet in Lowell, MA due to needing bloodwork in 60 days after my adoption to ensure I am getting better. Harvey's will cover the bloodwork at their vet until I am heartworm negative. The vet thinks I'm a Chi- JRT mix, about 2 years old, and I've rounded out at 19lb (I should be 15, but quarantine and crate rest...). I go right in my crate with a "bedtime" command, I have mastered "sit" for a treat, and I am about 90% potty trained (my treatment was hindering this). My foster home has other dogs (5lb to 50lb) but no kids or cats. I did meet a cat at the groomer and I wanted to go after it, so no cats for me. I also met an 8 year old girl there and she liked to snuggle so I really liked her. I can be very weary of new people and fast movements with a tendency to fear bite, so please no little kids or chaotic households. I am a heavy notification barker so apartments, attached condos, duplexes etc would not be ideal for me. I am a serious creature of habit and I do NOT like missing a meal. I will absolutely let you know if you get off schedule by a few minutes and cry until you make my breakfast or dinner. I'd like a laid back house that enjoys playing ball once in a while (because I am really good at it when I get zoomies), is consistent with crate training, has lots of toys, definitely blankets, and knows how to manage a little dog's diet because I could eat til I explode. Even on my worst days feeling like poop, I STILL scream to be fed at 7am and 5pm on the dot. I'm hoping to find my forever home where we can take it slow and really bond. I can be temperamental at times (did I mention I'm part chi?) so my new family really needs to be familiar with my breed and know I will likely never be a social butterfly with new people or dogs. This means I would NOT be good at dog parks, either. I just like routine and my close circle, like a lot. Think we can be best friends forever this time?

Gizmo is approx. 6-8 months old and what the vet believes to be a Yorkie mix. He is NOT hypoallergenic. Gizmo was hit by a car as a puppy in Texas, brought to the shelter, and his owners reclaimed him. Once they realized he needed surgery to repair his leg, they dropped him back off. By then, weeks had passed and his injury began to callus. The vet attempted to stablize his paw with casts, which has allowed him to now use the paw and put pressure on it. They did not reccomend surgery, so we sent him for a second opinion. The Georgia vet said that his leg has healed the best it can and does not recommend re-breaking it or doing surgery at this time as it has been too long. Gizmo could have complications with this leg and early arthritis later in life, so his adopter must be prepared for these potential costs. He is great with other playful dogs but could be annoying to a more relaxed, laid back resident dog. He has been cleared for adoption and can come to New England as early as Easter weekend for an approved adopter. He is unable to be cat or kid tested in his current foster. Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England.

Grace was a local owner surrender who came to us pregnant. We all took bets and lost because she had TEN puppies! She is a pittie mix, approx 3 years old, and 45lb. She loves humans and is OK with other dogs with proper introductions. She does not like kitties. She has been around kids 5 and older. Unfortunately, Grace's previous owners did not keep her on heartworm prevention. She will be ready for her forever home mid to late April once she is scheduled for spay, receives her vaccinations and finishes heartworm treatment. You can apply to pre-adopt Grace today to make sure she comes home to you!! From her foster mom: "Grace is an itty bitty pocket pittie at 43 lbs. As she recovers from her litter of 10 puppies, the vet expects her to put on some much needed weight, but she will still be very petite for a pittie mix. Grace is an incredibly sweet pup, who loves her toys (especially ones that squeak) and snuggling on the couch. As she recovers from nursing 10 babies, the better she feels and the more energy she has for playing. Grace dislikes the cold and is only willing to do short walks in a sweater or jacket. She loves running in the backyard, though, where she can move fast enough to keep warm, and chasing toys inside. Grace almost never barks and is incredibly easy to handle. She patiently allows us to put on and take off her sweaters, lets us clean her paws every time we come back inside, and is okay with us moving her food or taking a toy why she is eating or playing. When she wants attention, she will sometimes get mouthy, but we are working on it, and she is very gentle with her mouth when she does use it. While we have not personally seen her with children, based on her patience and willingness to be handled, we think she will do well in a house with kids, as long as we and they continue to work on not mouthing things." Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England. All adopters must be pre-approved to arrange a meet and greet, and the adopter is expected to travel to the dog's location. We do not transport once the dogs arrive in New England.

H O W I E ! Hello! I just turned 1.5 years old and I've been in and out of boarding since I was 4 months old. I am a Pit mix active boy, who went through a 4 week board and train program. I am back in another in home board and train program to learn some agility! I know basic commands and I worked on becoming a more confident pup. This will help me build the confidence I need to succeed in any environment, with any people and any other dogs. Howie’s adopter would need to also be confident, calm, work on socializing him, and start attending additional classes with him immediately. The rescue says I'm extremely silly, goofy and have an awesome personality once I start to trust. I can easily feed off energy in a room, so my handler needs to be aware of this and always work to keep my attention on them. I would NOT be a good fit for a family with children, small pets or someone who was not an experienced dog owner. Think we could be a dynamic duo? *Applications must be submitted at HarveysHope.org for consideration. *   Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH.

Hello! My name is Joe Joe. I am a 2-3 year old long- haired chihuahua. Like my pal Smokey, I came from a hoarding situation and was used for breeding. I am a sweet guy. I weigh in at just 8 pounds. I want to like people but I am scared. I shake like a leaf and go into flight mode when you get too close but I relax if you hold me nice and tight and pet me. I wear a cone because I had surgery to correct a “cherry eye” but it came right back unfortunately once the stitches came out. It does not bother me and the vet does not want to redo the surgery unless it becomes medically necessary. If you are a patient, loving, experienced chi owner, I think I could someday be a great lap dog. I could share a home with Smokey or with another friendly, confident doggo. I promise that I am worth the effort.   JoeJoe was an owner surrender out of South Carolina where his owner had over 30 chihuahuas that she could no longer care for. He and his friend Smoky are very shy, timid lads who need a very patient adopter to help them come out of their shell. He is approx. 3 years old, 8lb and along haired chihuahua mix. He will NOT be placed in a home with young children due to undersocialization and unpredictable behavior. He is also not a first-time dog owner dog or one to be in an apartment setting. Once this little fella warms up to you, trusts you and understands humans aren't bad, he accepts and yearns for attention. He is in a foster home in NC learning how to coexist with larger dogs and be socialized. He is unable to be cat tested. He will only travel to New England for an approved adopter due to the amount of stress multiple moves will make on this little guy.   Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England. All adopters must be pre-approved to arrange a meet and greet, and the adopter is expected to travel to the dog's location. We do not transport once the dogs arrive in New England.

These sweet babies were part of a hoarding case in SC. There were over 27 dogs on the property who had never seen more than their four kennel walls their entire life. They are timid and shy, but warm up very quickly once they trust you. Kenny is in a board and train currently for socialization and basic manners. He is working on proper introductions with other dogs- but as of now until he completes training, he should be placed as an only dog. Due to being in boarding, they are unable to be cat or kid tested but quite frankly they would do best without young children or small animals they may have had to chase to eat while living outside. They are currently 5-7mo, projected to be medium size dogs, around 40-50lb when fully grown. The vet believes they are Fiest/terrier mixes. Please note: We do not have a physical facility and the dogs are not located in Hudson, NH. We are a foster-based rescue and dogs can be located anywhere in New England. All adopters must be pre-approved to arrange a meet and greet, and the adopter is expected to travel to the dog's location. We do not transport once the dogs arrive in New England.
