11 Sep Four top animal welfare RSPCA gongs awarded to Tendring District Council
Teams at Tendring District Council (TDC) have picked up four animal welfare awards from the RSPCA – including a prestigious platinum award.
For several years now TDC has been recognised by the animal welfare charity for its work supporting stray pets with a Community Animal Welfare Footprint award – known as PawPrints.
The Dog Warden team for the fifth year running won a Gold award, and in recognition of the achievement and to mark ten years of PawPrints, the team was also given a Platinum award.
TDC’s Housing team has also for the tenth year – every year the awards have been run – been recognised with a Bronze award for its work in supporting tenants with pets.
In addition the council’s Animal Licensing team has also been given a Gold award for the sixth year running.
Neil Stock, leader of TDC, praised the teams for the excellent way they deal with animals.
