CRISIS POINT AT COUNCIL KENNELS IN BIRKENHEAD!!! It was changed how the kennels can be contacted, it goes via the 'Street Scene' team now, who have to email town hall who then have to email council kennels. Kennel staff cannot be spoken to directly unless you are at the kennels in person. Not good if it is a dangreous dog report, a stray running along a main road or even simple things like: Is my dog there
and what are your opening times? THIS NEEDS TO BE CHANGED BACK TO BEFORE because it doesn't work like this. Less people coming to kennels to rehome or reclaim, more dogs in there, all kennels full, dogs being put to sleep needlesly. Please voice your concerns by emailing environmentalhealth@wirral.gov​.uk
mark to attention of Colin Clayton who is head of department.

Birkenhead Kennels supporters’ angry at council’s call centre switch
Sep 5 2012 by Lorna Hughes, Birkenhead News
SUPPORTERS of Wirral’s council kennels fear a decision to handle inquiries at a call centre will slash the number of strays being rehomed.
Members of the public who want to get in touch with the Birkenhead-based Dog Warden Service now have to go through Wirral Council’s Streetscene call centre.
The council says with just two animal control officers on duty, the change – which was brought in at the end of August – will help manage demand.
But the Friends Of Birkenhead Kennels are furious at the move – and the former manager of the kennels said he shared the group’s concerns.
Friends’ co-founder Antje Tucker said: “Nine out of 10 calls to the kennels require an immediate response.
“For example it could be someone ringing to say they have lost their dog and wanting to know if it is there.
“It could be someone wanting to re-home a dog or ask about dangerous dogs. People in Streetscene do not know the answers to these questions.
“They will have to send a message to the kennels staff first and all that takes time. It is absolutely appalling.”
David Holden, who was animal control manager for Wirral Council until two years ago, said: “It is putting a barrier between the public and the service. People were able to call up and ask questions about specific dogs.
“Now that just will not happen and it will certainly result in fewer and fewer dogs finding new homes.
“Hopefully it will not impinge on owners trying to find their own dogs but I cannot see how it will not.
“We are all fully aware of the problems with funds and that things are going to get tighter but the service has already suffered greatly.”
The Corporation Road kennels is the only local authority controlled facility of its kind left in Merseyside.
Cllr Brian Kenny, cabinet member for the environment, said it was “early days” for the new system and it was a pilot which would be reviewed regularly.
He said: “To assist in the effective management and prioritisation of the officers’ time, we have introduced a new system which means trained customer service staff will be the first point of contact for those who wish to contact the service by phone.
“People should be assured that any urgent demand for assistance, such as to deal with a dangerous dog, will be prioritised for immediate response by an animal control officer.
“We understand people’s concerns but changes to the way calls into the kennels are handled are necessary to ensure our animal control staff are able to prioritise and successfully deliver the service.”

Same has happened to other departments in the council. Never works, those on the front line get the grief from the public. Street Scene will not, I am sure, be working all day Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays. Just a bit like other council departments which are unmanned at weekends, when the public seem to need most help.
Not only that, getting through to Street Scene in the normal course of events can make your blood boil, with the time you have to wait and all the messages telling you that there are 19 in the queue.

if less people breed their dogs or got one as a puppy cus it was cute without looking into the breed properly is the reason so meny kennels are as full as they are... instead of mocking them on doing a job other people give up on suport them!
