Newport Dog Home wins gold in RSPCA Cymru PawPrint Awards

NEWPORT City Dogs Home has won gold in two categories at the 2023 RSPCA Cymru PawPrint Awards for their work with stray dogs.

This is the twelfth year that the team has been recognised with a gold award in the stray dog category for their hard work looking after the dogs in their care. Newport City Dogs Home also won a second gold award for their work with kennelling stray dogs.

The RSPCA PawPrints annual award scheme recognises hard work from public bodies in relation to animal welfare. There are a number of categories for awards including recognition for stray dog provision, animal licensing work, contingency planning, and housing policies. Each category is judged on specific criteria and there are bronze, silver and gold standards in each.

To achieve a gold award for stray dog services requires protecting the welfare of stray dogs during and after they are in your care, as well as promoting responsible ownership. For the kennelling gold award requires ensuring the welfare needs of dogs are met and in line with RSPCA good practice.

Councillor James Clarke, cabinet member for strategic planning, regulation and housing said: “We are very proud of the hard work from everyone associated with Newport City Dogs Home, all of our staff work very hard to ensure stray or unwanted dogs have the care they need to ensure bright futures in their new homes

“It’s fantastic that the hard work has been recognised in not one, but two categories again. Well done to everyone involved!”
