Tonbridge Council looks after man’s best friend

    Dog

    The RSPCA has rewarded Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council with a Gold Award after the authority was placed in the top 15 per cent nationally for dealing with stray dogs.

    From March 31, 2015, to April 1, 2016, the council dealt with 245 stray dogs.

    The majority were reunited with their owners thanks to contact details found on their microchips or dog collar tags.

    A council spokesperson said the award recognises the ‘personal and professional commitment and dedication of Tonbridge & Malling’s Dog Warden, Lorraine Baseden’.
