Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Recycling and Environment Michael Michael said: "I am reliably informed that Cardiff Dogs Home have won a CAWF
award every year since they began in 2008 and that they've now achieved four golds.
It is kind of a big deal - CAWF
is the only award scheme in England and Wales that recognises the commitment and achievement by councils and the like in improving and delivering animal welfare.
awards bring national recognition of innovative ways of tackling animal welfare issues."
I KNEW if we waited long enough someone would provide the answer to the origins of the expression Holmfirth Cawf.

It wor a to-do an'' not hawf He caunted some stars an'' as t''mist cleared away His een let on farmer Sam''s cawf.
The RSPCA''s Community Animal Welfare Footprints (CAWF
) scheme rewards and promotes good practice in animal welfare carried out by local authorities.
