Guildford Licensing win prestigious RSPCA award Published Date: 23/10/2022

The RSPCA PawPrint Awards celebrate local authorities, housing providers and emergency services that have gone above and beyond caring for animals in their communities.

The awards, which include five categories recognise excellent practices in animal welfare. The categories are:

  • stray dog services
  • contingency planning
  • housing policy
  • animal activity licensing
  • kennelled dog welfare.

Lead Councillor for the Environment, Cllr James Steel said:

"Congratulations to our team for their achievement. Our officers work hard to ensure our standards remain high when it comes to the welfare of animals in our borough. This award is a reflection of their hard work.

"We regularly inspect licensed businesses to make sure they meet the required high standards of care. The businesses must have relevant experience or qualifications looking after pets. We also encourage our residents to let us know if they become aware of an unlicensed business. Unlicensed businesses are unlikely to have valid insurance.

"Our residents play a big part in supporting our team effort. It is also important that as an animal owner, they are aware of animal activities that need to be licensed."
