Cardiff Dogs Home awarded two PawPrint awards by RSPCA

THE UK’s largest animal welfare charity have awarded Cardiff Dogs Home two awards in recognition of the standard of kennelling they provide, and the way they look after stray dogs.

The team at Cardiff Dogs Home have now received at least one RSPCA Pawprints Award every year since 2008. This year they successfully achieved a Gold award in the Stray Dogs category and a Silver award for Kennelling.

Cabinet Member with responsibility for the Dogs Home, Cllr Dan De’Ath, said: “To receive at least one Pawprints award for fifteen years in a row is a fantastic achievement.

“Each and every animal that the Dogs Home look after deserves the best standard of care possible, and these RSPCA awards show that, with the support of an army of volunteers, and in partnership with local charity The Rescue Hotel, that is exactly what they get.”

Sioned Nikolic, public affairs advisor at RSPCA Cymru, said: “We have been so impressed with the standard of entries to this year’s awards, in particular the entries from Wales. It’s always so rewarding to celebrate the winners and their inspiring initiatives and hear just what a huge impact their work has had on animal welfare locally.

“Local Authorities play a huge role in the delivery of animal welfare; many of them doing incredible work in the face of steep challenges. Often this pioneering work is done quietly behind the scenes and remains unsung, but they really deserve to be applauded for changing the lives of not only animals, but local people too. PawPrints is all about recognising and celebrating these efforts.”
