Lee Gingell, RSPCA’s public affairs manager for local government, said: “We wanted to do something really special for those who have received awards year after year for their commitment to animal welfare. There were a whopping 36 public bodies who have won gold for the last five years or more which is an incredible achievement.”

Chris Sherwood, chief executive at the RSPCA, said: “Local government plays a vital role in improving animal welfare which is why we’re so pleased to work in partnership with these organisations, and why I was thrilled to attend the awards this year and celebrate their remarkable achievements for animals.”
