Meet Nuneaton and Bedworth’s new Animal Warden

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council’s animal warden is on hand for local residents who need help with pets or other animals.

Louisa Cullen started in the role this month. A former kennels worker, Louisa is keen to find ways to help inform and educate residents about the rules in place around animal ownership, and the resources around to help them
She said:

“What I want to do is to help people understand that rules in place apply to all owners and are there to help everyone. It’s important we look after the pets and other animals among us, and I hope to be out and about informing and supporting people to do the right thing for their animals.”

Most support offered by local authority services are to do with safe and appropriate conduct of dogs. Services provided by the animal warden includes dog control orders, dog fouling, dog off lead, stray dogs, lost dogs and dangerous dogs.

Portfolio holder for environment and health, Councillor Julian Gutteridge, said:

“I am delighted Louisa is in post and ready to provide our community with the support it needs.

“The vast majority of dog owners are considerate and responsible, not only for their pet's well-being but also for the impact on other residents and visitors to the Borough.

“But we have a range of measures available to take action where we believe animals are not being cared for appropriately, or dogs are not being supervised properly to help keep everyone safe. We need people to be our eyes and ears to help this happen, and Louisa will be on hand to help.”
