Cardiff Dogs Home is to be presented with the RSPCA’s Stray Dog Provision gold award at a ceremony at the Senedd next Wednesday. The award is part of the RSPCA’s Community Animal Welfare Footprint scheme.
City of Cardiff Council’s Emergency Management Unit will also be receiving a Contingency Planning bronze award at the same ceremony.
The manager of Cardiff Dogs Home, Maria Bailie said: “It’s great that hard work by staff, Dog Wardens and volunteers has been highlighted through the RSPCA’s gold award. Our main focus is on the safety of dogs and the citizens of Cardiff and we achieve this by taking in stray dogs, caring for them, re-uniting them with their owners or rehoming them. If anybody finds a dog that is obviously lost the first thing they should do is check to see if the dog is wearing a collar and an identification disc. If they’re unable to contact the owner they should call us on 029 2071 1243. They can also bring a stray dog straight to us at the dogs’ home at any time. We have 24hour cover for receiving stray dogs.”
