It has been decided two specifications will be considered for the impending dog kennel contract which is currently out for tender.
Previously the kennel owners have taken ownership and are responsible for any dogs left in their care after 7 days.
Although we have still presented this option we have also decided to present a second option which places full responsibility on the local authority to rehome the dog after the initial 7 day period expires. It may be necessary to extend the stay beyond 7 days if an owner is not found but the local authority will meet all additional kennelling costs.
Please refer to the specification for a detailed breakdown of option 1 and option 2.
We feel this will encourage kennel owners who may have the facilities available but not the capacity to home dogs for a prolonged period to bid for the contract.
As clearly stated in both option 1 and option 2 the contract would be awarded based upon a strict scoring system basis, taking into account the service provided and a dog per day price.
Please note you may submit a tender for either option 1, option 2 or a tender for both options if wish to do so.
All tenders will be scored and considered on their individual merits.
We strive to ensure the best service, facilities and care is provided to all dogs taken into our care.
