IT'S ANOTHER GOLD FOR COUNCIL'S STRAY DOGS SERVICE

Cheshire West and Chester Council has scored top marks when it comes to animal welfare for the fifth year running.

The Council scooped an RSPCA Gold Community Animal Welfare Footprint (CAWF) Award for going above and beyond basic legal requirements in the way it handles stray dogs.

The Awards promote and reward good practice by local authorities in certain fields of animal welfare.

The national animal charity recognised the hard work and dedication of Regulatory Services staff involved in the collection and re-homing of stray dogs and the fact that the service has clear procedures and education programmes in place.

Part of this involves education and awareness-raising, including the Council's approach to dealing with anti-social behaviour such as failing to clean up after your dog.

Dog owners can really help the Regulatory Services team by ensuring that their pets are kept safe, are tagged and micro-chipped and by picking up after them.
By getting your dog tagged and micro-chipped it means you can be reunited as quickly as possible if they go astray.

From April 2016 it became a legal requirement for all dogs in England to be micro-chipped.

If you need to report a stray dog the following telephone numbers can be used:

Telephone: 0300 123 7038 (option 1) 8am — 7pm, Monday to Friday

Outside of these hours (including weekends and Bank Holidays) — call 0300 123 7035
