    I am so disillusioned with the RSPA I have stopped donating to them as a lot of my friends have done.They tell lies as far as a I am concerned.And paying $14 extra to kill dog or cat all I can say is shameon the RSPCA have you a heart or conscience, can you sleep at night knowing what you are doing.

    Brilliant ! finally the truth about the fat RSPCA and trying to explain how they try to muddy the waters and shift the facts.

    This story also applies to Victoria. In my area, the council pound is in Burwood East, a suburb that is OUTSIDE this council area. It’s disgusting to think of what my community cats endured at their hands, not to mention the assistance dog the RSPCA took away from me and they’re now dragging me through the court to get him back, they’re applying pet standards to a working dog.

    Believe it !! I worked as a vet nurse at RSPCA and left because of the euthanasia rate and the temperament testing (with no re training its an excuse to justify the kill rate). My advice is to support no kill shelters only and by the way if you bequest your pet and money to the RSPCA and your pet in 72 hours does not pass the health or temperament test it will be euthanased and your money is still taken regardless. While I was there 2 houses were donated and sold left in peoples wills . Also see the staff ratio 3 people in administration to 1 working with the animals , this is a business . All the vets and Nurses took a pay cut to work there , then I find out that the top 3 executives salary take up the whole annual government donation and they do not do any overtime. My legacy will go to other charities that do not kill the animals, work with all volunteers and re home many more animals per year, in Perth we have k9 rescue and many more.

    Excellent article. I When I left the RSPCA (Qld) in 2006, I felt helpless to do anything against an organisation with such a bloated air of authority and power. But the RSPCA in Australia is a corrupt organisation who lies. It’s core motivation is profit, not in serving the animals taken into its care; I know because I worked there and I killed for them.

    Doing everything to rehome RSPCA NSW? Guess who the only two large organisations in Australia who don’t list adoptable pets on PetRescue are? You guessed it – RSPCA NSW and The Lost Dogs Home.

    Enough said.
