For this it has been awarded a gold and bronze standard.
The RSPA runs Paw Prints, its animal activity recognition programme, each year and recognises authorities which demonstrate they have met the relevant standards to be awarded.
The honours awards those who work tirelessly to improve animal welfare, campaign on behalf of animals or show true bravery.
The council has been honoured with the Gold Footprint standard for its work with stray dogs, whilst it received the Bronze Footprint for its animal licensing activity.
Councillor Mark Young, Cabinet Lead Member for Planning, Public
Protection and Safer Communities, said: “The fact that Denbighshire picked up
two awards is great news and is a testament to the team’s hard work.
“There is a strong partnership between the Public Protection team
and the North Clwyd Animal Rescue Centre, as well as specialist vets who
support the animal licensing process. Every effort is made to try and reunite
dogs with their owners before they are taken to an animal rescue centre.
"Local authorities have a key role to play in protecting the
welfare of animals and it’s great that Denbighshire’s commitment has been
recognised at a national level."
