South Holland District Council has been recognised nationally for the second year running in respect of the care given to stray dogs across the area.

The RSPCA has given the council a gold award in the stray dog category at this year's PawPrints Awards which celebrates the achievements of public sector organisations in caring for animals.

Among the initiatives promoted the Council, which the award covers, are thekennelling and re-homing of dogs, veterinary care, microchipping and neutering campaigns and the work of area dog warden Oliver Abrams.

The council won the same award last year and its portfolio holder for public protection, Coun Anthony Casson, said: "To be presented with this award for a second consecutive year is a great achievement and a testament to the continued achievements of council staff and their commitment to animal welfare.

"Our environmental protection team is always working hard, with our partners and the rest of the community, to secure the best possible outcomes for animals and residents in the district.

"So it is brilliant to see their work highlighted and rewarded again."
