Cardiff Dogs Home and Cardiff Council’s Emergency Management Unit have won RSPCA Cymru awards for their efforts to improve animal welfare.
Both organisations have been recognised as part of RSPCA Cymru’s annual awards the Community Animal Welfare Footprints (CAWF).
Cardiff Dogs Home won gold in the Stray Dog category and the Emergency Management Unit received a bronze award in the Contingency Planning section. They will be presented with their awards at a special ceremony next month.
Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Recycling and Environment, Cllr Michael Michael said:
“I would like to thank our staff at Cardiff Dogs Home and the Emergency Management Unit for their dedication and hard work which has resulted in this recognition from RSPCA Cymru. I am reliably informed that Cardiff Dogs Home have won a CAWF award every year since they began in 2008 and that they’ve now achieved four golds. This is a fantastic achievement and underlines the important public service they provide both individually and in partnership with the Emergency Management Unit.”
