Keeping our communities, our customers and our members safe is a key part of everything we do here at Central England Co-op.
And this, of course, also extends to the four-legged members of our community – dogs.
This is why, based on recent events that have seen a major spike in dog thefts, we want to ask all of our colleagues, customers and members to be vigilant and protect out pooches while they patiently wait outside our stores.
Also, we are encouraging people to sign an online petition urging the Government to create a specific offence for dog theft including a minimum sentence and a fine of at least £5,000.
