    International Cat Care Welfare Award
    International Cat Care will be choosing the winner of this award from its extensive membership base. The winner will be announced at the awards’ ceremony.

    The judges have granted an award in special recognition of an individual’s lifetime commitment to animal welfare. The Outstanding Contribution to Animal Welfare Award is supported by Your Dog and Your Cat magazines and will be announced on the night of the awards.

    The shortlist for each award was decided following a day of deliberations by a panel of esteemed judges chaired by retired veterinary surgeon, Chris Laurence MBE FRCVS. Chris has a wealth of experience in animal welfare; he is chairman of the Animal Welfare Foundation, the Canine and Feline Sector Group of the Animal Health and Welfare Board and BVBA (British Veterinary Behaviour Association) and before retiring he was chief veterinary officer at the RSPCA and veterinary director of Dogs Trust. He is also involved in a number of charities and is a trustee of the Pet Blood Bank and the Bella Moss Foundation.

    Chair of the judging panel, Chris Laurence, says: “The variety and scope of the nominations never cease to amaze me and highlight how much extraordinary effort goes into improving animal welfare by a diverse but dedicated group of people. The variety of work undertaken by this year’s candidates covered almost every aspect of contact with animals imaginable and does so much to improve their lives. How many of them fit their level of effort into their lives continues to amaze and inspire the judges and makes shortlisting finalists and picking winners an ever more difficult task.”

    Cuneyt Seckin, managing director of Ceva Animal Health, adds: “The Ceva Animal Welfare Awards go from strength-to-strength in both the quantity and quality of the nominations that we receive. We are delighted to be able to honour the individuals and organisations who dedicate their lives to enhance and improve animal welfare both in the UK and abroad.”

    Winners will be revealed and presented with their awards during a glitzy ceremony held in Birmingham ahead of BSAVA Congress on 3rd April 2019. To find out more about the awards visit
