Fareham Borough Council has received a Gold award for the fourth year running for its Stray Dog Service in the RSPCA Community Animal Welfare Footprints (CAWF) awards.
The RSPCA CAWF scheme was launched in 2008 and aims to reward and promote good practice in animal welfare by local authorities. The award recognises organisations that have gone above and beyond their basic service requirements to ensure higher animal welfare standards.
The award acknowledges the importance of information and education and recognises authorities who actively promote schemes and services to reduce the number of strays.
Executive Member for Public Protection, Councillor Trevor Cartwright, said, "I'm really pleased we have been able to achieve the Gold Footprint for our Stray Dog Service for the fourth time. Fareham Borough Council is one of only two authorities in Hampshire to receive a gold award for its Stray Dog Service and I am very proud of this accomplishment".
