Council gets Gold Award for work with stray dogs - 15/10/20

Conwy County Borough Council has gained a Gold CAWF (Community Animal Welfare Footprint Award) this week from RSPCA Cymru in recognition of its work with stray dogs.

The levels of award recognise work done by organisations to put in place things like training for staff responsible for stray dog collection and procedures to get treatment for injured and sick stray dogs. Organisations are also assessed on the information provided to owners reclaiming strays on how to prevent the animal straying again and, to achieve the Gold Award, there must also be evidence of regular proactive work to encourage responsible dog ownership.

Conwy’s Regulatory Services deal with around 400 stray dogs every year.

Cllr Charlie McCoubrey, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Regulatory, said, “We’re very pleased to have achieved the Gold standard from RSPCA Cymru's CAWF again. The Award recognises the approach the team have to dealing with stray dogs and reuniting them with their owners, and the work they do across the County to encourage responsible dog ownership.”
