Canine Partners is an incredible charity, which has helped countless people over the years to overcome life limiting conditions through the provision of highly trained assistance dogs.
These amazing canine companions are able to carry out all sorts of helpful tasks for their human partners from picking up keys and retrieving groceries to taking on household chores and seeking help in an emergency. They not only give their owners the freedom to live more independently, but also provide peace of mind in the form of a furry best friend.
We donate the majority of our charitable income to Canine Partners and raise awareness through a variety of organised fundraising activities in our stores. In addition to this we gift 10p from the sale of each of our eco-bags, and a further 5p from our plastic bags, to the charity.
