Double RSPCA award win for Cardiff Dogs Home
Cardiff Dogs Home has received two RSPCA PawPrints awards. Formerly known as the Community Animal Welfare Footprints (CAWF) scheme, the awards celebrate good practice in relation to animal welfare by rewarding organisations exceeding basic and statutory service requirements.

This year Cardiff Dogs Home has retained its Gold award in the Stray Dogs category as well as adding a Silver award in the new Kennelled Dogs category.

Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Recycling and Environment, Cllr Michael Michael said: “The team at Cardiff Dogs Home carry out an important public service and these awards are testament to their dedication and hard work.

“I’m told that Cardiff Dogs Home have won one of these awards every year since 2008, five of them gold – that’s already a fantastic record, but to take home awards in two categories in one year is a real achievement and demonstrates the commitment of the team to providing the highest possible level of care for all the dogs they look after.”

RSPCA Public Affairs Adviser, Lewis Clark, said: "RSPCA Cymru is delighted that Cardiff Dogs Home has once again been recognised via our one-of-a-kind PawPrints scheme.

"They have shown consistent dedication to canine welfare; highlighted by their commitment to the way they look after stray dogs, and the standards of kennelling they deliver.

"PawPrints is the only scheme recognising public bodies who go above and beyond for animals. We're very excited to present awards to Cardiff Council, and other public bodies from across Wales, at a special ceremony later this month."

The awards will be formally presented in a ceremony at the Senedd on Monday 23rd September 2019.
