Andrew Stephenson MP has congratulated Pendle Borough Council for being recognised in the RSPCA’s PawPrints Awards, where hard working staff achieved a Gold Stray Dog Footprint. As they have held this award at Gold level for five years continuously, and in recognition of PawPrints' tenth anniversary, they have also won a Platinum Stray Dogs Footprint.
The RSPCA, work closely with local authorities, the police, local resilience forums and housing associations to help them to deliver animal welfare services. This year they received a great number of entries at a higher standard than ever. This year saw seen significant progress in local authority and housing provider animal welfare services, with many authorities going on to exceed the standards they achieved last year, continuing the trend since the scheme was first launched in 2008. This is a fantastic way for the Awards to celebrate their tenth birthday!
Andrew Stephenson MP said, “My congratulations go to all the Environmental Services staff who work extremely hard which has ensured Pendle achieves Platinum status with the RSPCA Awards. Animal Welfare is something I care deeply about and I will continue to do what I can to ensure standards in animal welfare continue to improve.”
