Dear Ms Bloomfield
 
Thank you for your recent email requesting information about Stray Dogs -
I sincerely apologise for the delay in my reply.
 
The information you requested is set out below. 
 
1. The name/s and address/es of the establishment/s to which dogs
are taken when found to be straying in your area.
 
All Stray Dogs found within the South Hams District Council area are taken
to establishments within the  Teignbridge DC area - Animals in Distress at
Ipplepen and Foredowne, Kingskerswell.
 
 
2, How often are the holding kennels inspected by the council?
 
As the establishments are out of the SHDC area, Teignbridge District
Council would be responsible for any inspections, so I have no information
to provide.
 
 
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review.  Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original email and should be addressed to Becky Fowlds, Solicitor, email:
[email address]
 
Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.
 
If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
