    yep like the horses i uhhhhh *stole* to the RSPCA there was nothing wrong – they had grass so had food and had water because there was a stream

    the stream was contaminated because of a dead horse in it that had died because of starvation

    Hi,

    They also left a dog in a shed snuggling up to its companion “because it had water”

    …. oh did i mention the companion was a small doggie skeleton, a collie maybe …..

    god it breaks my heart.

    I know the RSPCA have their failings but they also do a hell of a lot of good, and
    once the animal welfare bill gets passed the RSPCA will be able to do more.  At the moment animals have to be suffering before anything can be done, but people will have a legal requirement to look after their pets basic needs and animals will be able to be removed to prevent cruelty or suffering from happening

    The RSPCA do more harm than good

    i was reading about them empounding a dog and taking a man to court because in an emergency the family had taken him to the nearest vet an RSPCA one they had then taken him to there own vet not returned to them therefore the family haddnt attended to the dogs needs

    I have also dealt with them on some horse rescue cases totally useless

    this animal welfare bill if it does give them more power then the true animal people are going to get persicuted while the people who misstreat there animals will carry on getting away with it

    Hi,

    personally i hope the bill works.  i know we all hear about the cases that they are rubbish dealing with but i do also hear positive experiences from time to time, i think its just that people are less likely to tell them as they maybe aren’t as shocking?

    I couldnt be an inspector, I too would probably be inclined to verbally abuse people too often !!!

    Whats the answer then, let councils or government look after animal welfare – would that be better, I seriously doubt it.  “true animal” people will surely want the facility in place to prosecute the b******s who abuse animals, and to remove animals to prevent suffering.

    I agree with what claire said – you will always hear about the bad cases much more than the good ones, and it is incredibly easy to criticise and be negative.

    One body that thinks everything it does is right is never the answer they recon (last years figures) it costs £82 million annual running costs that are funded exclusively by voluntary donations and legacies yet they have only 323 uniformed RSPCA inspectors and 146 Animal Collection Officers (ACOs) in England and Wales does this sound balanced?

    I make no bones that I have not the time of day for the RSPCA they went out of there way to upset everyone involved in the world of dogs from the people that Show,Agility,Obedience all of use by being given a large stand and then hanging a mega picture of a huge pile of dead dogs at the worlds show piece show Crufts some years ago not a great way of winning friends, they also alienate every breed rescue in the UK by not letting any of them even buy back rescues of their breed they consider themselves to be experts in everything and the goverment are going to go with this bunch………… So say they do and their work trebles are they going to be goverment funded? They had a programmes on TV in between the odd rescue they kept on repeating if only we had more Inspectors we could do more work, do me a favour they are the top earning animal charity in the UK they expect every clinic to turn a profit if not they are shut and on top of that the clinics are not local run they are central run, so any money that is donated does not stay with that clinic but goes to central office.

    As much as I would like to see something work for the good of the animals I can’t see this working I have seen them leave animals in the most appalling conditions, I am not saying that some of the inspectors are not kind caring animal lovers just that IMO this is a top heavy self opinionated organisation.
