31 Oct Basildon Council recognised for its care of stray dogs
Basildon Council has been recognised by the RSPCA again for its contribution to improving animal welfare.
The Animal Control Team have been awarded the prestigious Gold Stray Dog Footprint 2017 for going above and beyond statutory service requirements. They were assessed on mechanisms and policies in place to ensure the welfare of stray dogs, provide staff training, and promote responsible dog ownership.
Their win will be celebrated at the RSPCA’s Community Animal Welfare Footprint Awards, which are taking place at RICS Parliament Square in London on Tuesday 28 November.
Advice for owners of stray or lost dogs is available at http://www.basildon.gov.uk/article/4911/Animal-Control-Licensing-and-Welfare
