Partnership scoops three awards at RSPCA animal welfare initiative
Posted on: Thursday 13 October 2022
The Shared Regulatory Service (SRS) for Bridgend County Borough, Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan has won three awards at the 2022 RSPCA PawPrints initiative, including two Gold’s.
The partnership is recognised in three different categories – Stray Dogs (Gold), Animal-related Licensing (Gold) and Kennelled Dogs (Bronze).
Set up in 2015, the service aims to bring together key matters such as trading standards, licensing and animal welfare in the region.
The scheme also has the backing of Welsh Government, the Welsh Local Government Association, the Chartered Trading Standards Institute and the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
This is the first time the Shared Regulatory Service has achieved the gold standard for Animal-related Licensing, and it represents an improvement on last year’s silver award.
It is also notable that the SRS is the only service in Wales to achieve the gold standard in this category.
This award is thoroughly deserved as the team work incredibly hard, often in very challenging conditions, to ensure the health and welfare of animals.
I couldn’t be more pleased that all their efforts have been recognised so positively and it’s really pleasing to see this vital partnership improve year after year.Councillor Rhys Goode, Cabinet Member for Future Generations and Wellbeing
