A district council has received its fifth award in a row for it’s dedication to protecting animals.

Breckland Council have been recognised by the RSPCA for its commitment to protecting animal welfare for five years in a row.

The animal charity issued the council with its latest award at the RSPCA 2020 PawPrint Awards, where Breckland scooped Gold Award status in the Stray Dog category.

It recognises the council’s care and provision when dealing with stray dogs, including the work of the council’s dog warden, kennels, re-homing, veterinary care and the other staff who help to manage and administer the service.

It also recognises promotional work around the microchipping and neutering of dogs.
