Bronze Award for Broxtowe Neighbourhood Wardens

Bronze Award for Broxtowe Neighbourhood Wardens

03/10/2016 - Broxtowe Borough Council's Neighbourhood Wardens have been awarded bronze in the Community Animal Welfare Footprints and RSPCA Innovator awards for their stray dog service for the second year running.

The Bronze Stray Dog Footprint award is recognition of the team, which is made up of 2 full time and 2 part time Neighbourhood Wardens, and their work to ensure stray dog welfare during the collection and kennelling processes, proactive work to educate owners, and preventative measures to reduce both straying and long-term strays.

The team were assessed on a number of things including basic dog handling, health and safety, the treatment of injured or sick stray dogs, their out of hours service and education of owners.

Chair of the Environment and Community Safety Committee, Councillor Mia Kee said: The Neighbourhood Wardens do fantastic work to improve the welfare of stray dogs they find in the Borough. To win this award for the second year running is credit to them.

Anybody who would like to give a dog a new home can contact a local rescue centre such as Babbington Hall Rescue, Awsworth at www.babbington-rescue.org.uk

The Community Animal Welfare Footprints Awards are the only awards that recognise the hard work of local authorities, social housing providers and contingency planners and help share good practice on animal welfare.
