Cardiff Council and Cardiff Dogs Home have been awarded a prestigious ‘Community Animal Welfare Footprints’ award for the second year running.

Cardiff Dogs Home has been recognised for a silver footprint award for ‘Stray Dogs’ within this scheme for their commitment to tackling the issue of stray dogs and for work relating to animal welfare.

Councillor Margaret Jones, Executive Member for Environment said:
“I am delighted that we have won this prestigious award from the RSPCA. Winning the Community Animal Welfare Footprints scheme for the second year is a fantastic achievement for our staff. It recognises the high quality service that they provide in tackling the issue of stray dogs in the City and our commitment to animal welfare in general.”

Piers Claughton, the RSPCA's Senior Local Government Adviser, said: "The aim of the Community Animal Welfare Footprints is to recognise and celebrate those that have made an extra effort and gone beyond their basic service requirements to ensure higher welfare standards in some of the services they provide."
