The officers managed to access the vehicle and reach the dogs without damaging the car, and took them to the nearby police station.
Photos posted on social media showed the two dogs happily sitting in the back of the police vehicle as they were driven back to the station.
The incident was reported to the RSPCA.
Posted on social media, Cannock Police said: “Another example of dogs left in a vehicle parked at the new outlet, on a hot day in Cannock… with no access to water.
The officers managed to gain access to the vehicle without damaging it in order to take the dogs away and save them from the heat.
Officers then took the dogs back with them to their police station and posted them on social media to let their owners know they were available for pickup.
“If you want to know how hot it is in the car with a cracked window and the engine off… you can try sitting in the car yourself.
“We were able to open the door without damage, and these very hot and thirsty dogs were taken to Cannock Police Station, if the owner wishes to collect them. ”
The million-pound store opened on April 12 with dozens of designer brands including Levi’s, Tommy Hilfiger and BOSS located inside the village.
