20/09/19: Breckland receives RSPCA PawPrint Gold Status award!

Black Mogrel DogBreckland Council has maintained its reputation for providing exceptional care and provision when dealing with stray dogs, after receiving a Gold status from the RSPCA's 2019 PawPrint Awards.

The RSPCA have recognised the Council's stray dog work as part of their 2019 PawPrints Awards, introduced to showcase the achievements of local authorities and public service organisations who have gone above and beyond for animals.

The Council received a Gold award in the Stray Dog category, a wonderful tribute to our hard working Animal Warden Service's team. The category celebrates the work done across the entire journey of the Council's work with strays, including the work of the warden, kennels, re-homing, veterinary care and the other staff who help to manage and administer the service.

It also recognises promotional work around the microchipping and neutering of dogs, with advice and links to further information available on the Council's website, along with more information about the dog warden service.


Cllr Alison Webb, Executive Member for Housing, Health and the Environment commented  "To be recognised by the RSCPA, a charity which has not only led the UK, but the world in championing animal welfare, is a great achievement and a testament to the wonderful service we offer to our stray canine companions."

"Our team are always working hard with internal and external partners, and the rest of the community to secure the best possible outcomes for animals and residents in the district. It is brilliant to see their work highlighted and rewarded by the RSPCA."
