Rescue dogs are pulling in the crowds at Alexandra Palace – and raising money for a vital cause.
London Search and Rescue, which aids the Metropolitan Police to find vulnerable missing people, has taken its specially-trained dogs to Ally Pally’s garden centre in the run-up to Christmas every Sunday.
The volunteer-run charity is fundraising so that it can contunue to support the police in searches for high-risk residents around north London.
The dogs have proven a big hit with passers-by, and the charity is feeling the love during the festive period.
London Search and Rescue’s Mark Mendoza told the Ham&High: “It’s been absolutely phenomenal.
