Joining forces with Dogs Trust to tackle dog fouling in Ryedale

Ryedale District Council’s Don’t be a Waster – Reduce, Reuse, Respect campaign is highlighting the issue of dog fouling next month.

The Council has teamed up with Dogs Trust to host community events in the district to promote responsible dog ownership. The events will take place in Helmsley, Norton and Pickering.

Denise Kelly, North of England Campaigns Manager from Dogs Trust said, “We’re delighted to be working with Ryedale District Council to provide these community events. By working in partnership we can provide a free, easily accessible service to local dog owners and promote all aspects of responsible dog ownership, including picking up after your dog – and the legal requirements for doing so.”

Each event will offer free dog health checks for dogs, including nail clipping, free poo bags, free on the spot microchipping and a free check your chip service.

Councillor Luke Ives, Chairman of the Council's Policy and Resources Committee, commented, “I’m delighted that we can work with such a well-respected dog welfare charity to highlight the problem of dog fouling. Dogs Trust does a great deal of valuable work in communities all over the country. I hope Ryedale residents will take advantage of this opportunity to take their dogs along to these events.”

The events will run from 11am to 3pm at these dates and locations:

Tuesday 10 April, The Old School Room, Helmsley Methodist Church, Helmsley

Wednesday 18 April, Memorial Hall, Pickering

Monday 30 April, Norton Trinity Methodist Church, Norton
