CAWES Special project reports 09 January 2012
Under the Welsh Government administered Companion Animal Welfare Enhancement Scheme (CAWES), which concluded on the 31st of March 2011, funding was made available to Welsh Local Authorities via small grants for special projects to allow the proper investigation of companion animal welfare issues of public concern.
Local Authorities could either individually, or in groups, bid for these special project grants. These special projects were delivered by Local Authorities working in partnership with non-statutory animal welfare organisations and other organisations.
