Burglars stole £8,000 of stock from a dog day care centre in Northampton after smashing a hole in the wall to break in.

Thieves struck at Scoobys Doggy Day Care, in Rothersthorpe Industrial estate, on Sunday night and removed all the stock including dog food, beds, collars and a large pair of weighing scales.

The theft was uncovered shortly before 7am on Monday morning when owner Joanna Gibbins opened up the business.

It is the second time the centre has been targeted by thieves in the past seven months. Cash was stolen from the centre last October.

Ms Gibbins said: “They have smashed a massive hole in the wall, which is about 10 inches thick, and then completed cleared all our stock and trashed the place.

“They must have needed about three vans as it was a huge amount of stock.”

Ms Gibbins said she was insured for the losses but had been forced to turn away many dogs who had been due to spend the day at the centre on Monday.

She is now appealing for people to be on the lookout for any dog food or dog-related products that may be offered for sale that were stolen from her business.

Witnesses to the burglary, or anyone with any information about the stolen stock, are asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
