DogLost celebrated its first year working in partnership with Essex Police with a slice of cake.
The formal partnership has seen some successful results, not least the reuniting of cancer-detecting Monty the English Bull Terrier following a tip-off to DogLost.
The little celebration followed a meeting between the two organisations and local.
The photo shows DogLost’s Essex Co-ordinator, Kim Herbert and Police Co-ordinator Jane Franklin, along with Basildon Dog Warden Sarah Moran, Essex Watch Liaison officer Kevin Blake, Crime Prevention and Partnership Sergeant Tina Pavelin, Jacky Donaghy, Dogs Trust and Essex Watch Liaison Officer Brenda Cross.
DogLost works with a number of police forces around the country with new partnerships expected in the coming months.
