We would like to congratulate two of our committee members, Wendy Sneddon and Vicki Betton, on being awarded the BSAVA Ray Butcher Memorial Award at BSAVA congress. This award is BSAVA’s unsung hero award which is presented annually to recognise an individual who has made a significant contribution to animal welfare. Wendy and Vicki were awarded for their hard work creating ‘Animal Welfare in Violent Homes’, an online CPD course to help human health professionals understand animal abuse, and the link with other types of family violence. What an achievement! The course can be accessed for free here-
