Council wins gold with RSPCA

East Herts Council has once again retained its gold Footprint award from the RSPCA.

­­­­­­­This year the awards are celebrating their 10th birthday and to celebrate this and East Herts holding their gold award for five consecutive years, the council has also been awarded the platinum Footprint award.

The national animal charity recognised the council's continuing hard work and dedication in stray dog collection and re-homing.

This award wouldn't have been possible without the dedication of local vets, kennels, neighbouring councils and animal rescue charities, and their commitment to ensuring that strays are re-homed appropriately and quickly.

Graham McAndrew, executive member for environment and the public space, said: "The award is given to local authorities that have clear procedures in place to ensure both the welfare of stray dogs and a clear consistency of service.

It also recognises the importance of information, and rewards authorities who actively promote schemes and services that may reduce the number of stray dogs."
