The RSPCA’s Community Animal Welfare Footprint scheme was first launched in 2008.  It is designed to reward and promote good practice in animal welfare by local authorities in England and Wales. It also recognises organisations that demonstrate the importance of actively promoting schemes and services such as microchipping.

The Borough Council was first awarded silver in 2012 and has since gone on to win gold for the last four years.

David Baxendale, Environmental Health Manager at the Borough Council said:

 “We know we offer an excellent service but proving it can be tricky.  We are, however, delighted to win the Gold award again as it recognises the hard work and commitment our team has to animal welfare.   It also demonstrates that our service, along with the professionalism of our kennel, and rehoming partners at Birmingham Dogs’ Home in Catherine de Barnes, are really valued by the RSPCA.  In these financially challenging times, it is good to know that we are still able to provide a high quality service throughout the 110 square miles that the Borough Council covers.”
