NCDL Chief executive Clarissa Baldwin has been shortlisted for the prestigious European Woman of Achievement for her services for dog welfare in the UK and Europe.
The European Woman of Achievement awards cover five categories, Arts and Media, Entrepreneur, Business, Professional and Humanitarian and highlights the increasingly important contribution of woman to Pan-European advancement.

The NCDL is the UKs largest dog welfare charity and works tirelessly to ensure that every dog is free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. We also work hard to ensure that welfare conditions in Europe are satisfactory. To help those countries who wish to improve welfare we offer practical advice through our International Companion Animal Welfare Conference (ICAWC) which was developed with the belief in working towards a world where no healthy companion animal is destroyed for want of a caring home with responsible owners.
Clarissa has been an integral part of the NCDL for the last 25 years and has overseen many important changes in the world of dog welfare.
