Pendle's dog warden team win RSPCA Gold Footprint award
2:54pm Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
PENDLE Council’s dog warden team is celebrating its fifth consecutive RSPCA Gold Footprint award.
The national award recognises organisations which have gone ‘above and beyond’ their basic service requirements to provide high standards of care for dogs.
Pendle Council leader Joe Cooney said: “This award is the RSPCA’s seal of approval for how we care for dogs in Pendle and how we encourage responsible animal ownership.
“It’s a great accolade for our dog wardens.
“What’s clear from winning this award for the fifth year running is that the service is still being delivered to a very high standard and our dog warden team is among the very best in the country.”
Pendle dog warden Katrina Bullas said: “Getting this award for five years in a row is an achievement we are incredibly proud of.”
Dog wardens promote responsible dog ownership through contact with owners at microchipping events and at dog training clubs.
They also work with schoolchildren, attending school assemblies and running workshops.
