Oxford City Council wins fifth gold at RSPCA animal welfare awards

Published: Tuesday, 13th October 2015

Oxford City Council has been nationally recognised for the fifth year running for the humane way it looks after lost and stray dogs.

The Public Health Team has, once again, been recognised for their exceptional work in looking after stray dogs. Council Leader Bob Price and Dog Warden Ken Williams will be presented with the award at a prestigious ceremony in the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors on 24 November to accept a Gold Community Animal Welfare Footprint award.

These national awards recognise organisations that exceed their legal requirements and are recognised for providing a higher standard of welfare to the animals in their care.

Councillor Price said: “This award recognises the care and concern we show about the animals in our charge and I am very proud of the team for their efforts to be recognised yet again.”

The Council has already won several awards this year, including the Gold Employer of the Year award at the Investors in People Awards.
