Crime-fighting canines from The Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Dog Unit swapped police chases for photos to star in a new charity calendar.

The force dogs recently took part in a professional photo shoot by Katrina Wilson Dog Photography to produce a calendar and help raise money for two charities.

The calendar will feature some of the team’s tough but loveable canines and is likely to prove popular with dog lovers.

PC Lindsey Cox, from the BCH Dog Unit and who handles police dog Harley, said: “We’re hoping this is going to be a fun way of raising money for two deserving animal charities.

“The support we receive from the public has always been overwhelming, and we’d be incredibly grateful if this could extend to our aim of raising money for the rescue centres.

“As there is a limited number of calendars we are asking for a minimum donation of £8 per calendar, and any larger donations will obviously be received with our sincere thanks.”

The funds raised will be split between German Shepherd Rescue Elite and Luna Animal Rescue.

German Shepherd Rescue Elite looks to rescue and rehome German Shepherds across the country, whilst educating people about the breed.

Bedfordshire-based Luna Animal Rescue has been working for around five years to help rehome dogs, cats and small animals predominantly in the South East.

Anyone wishing to support the unit’s fundraising by pre-ordering a calendar is asked to make their donation via PayPal at www.paypal.me/bchdogunit.

Alternatively the calendars can be collected from one of the three forces’ headquarters in Kempston (Bedfordshire HQ), Huntingdon (Cambridgeshire HQ) or Welwyn Garden City (Hertfordshire).

If you’d prefer to collect your calendar, leave a note when making payment via PayPal.
