A break-in at a Pendle charity has left volunteer members exasperated and fuming at the same time.

Pendle Dogs in Need was broken into overnight and the damage, estimated at hundreds of pounds, was discovered this morning.

According to the charity’s Facebook page, its Colne premises were “totally trashed” and it is not known at this stage what has been stolen.

A volunteer wrote on the group’s Facebook page: “Looking through the window, it’s obvious what we are, a small local volunteer charity that struggle to make ends meet, a charity run by people who don’t take a penny from the money for the dogs, people that work tirelessly for nothing but the happiness of seeing once unwanted dogs loved in forever homes.

“Yet you seem to think it’s fine to just smash our door to pieces and to help yourself to what ever you wanted!

“I’d like to meet you and take you with me to the dog pound to meet the dogs on death row that this month we may not be able to help due to some vile person taking our funds and leaving us with a huge repair bill.
