I knew there would be a donation link there somewhere... But funnily enough, they are based in Marden, Hereford.

That's actually where my dad lives, and its a very small village in the middle of nowhere (it's actually nearer Leominster than Hereford), bit up their own arses most of the people there. They must be making a mint off donations to live there lol.

So was every post that you made Tilly just a set up for this one?
They've all been dog related and not one has been Wirral related.
Maybe a pet forum would suit you more?
I'm not trying to be snarky but hey, that's just the way I see it.

The question is what do we think of the RSPCA, well i think its a excellent organisation that does excellent work for the welfare of animals. Like most large organisation it going make mistakes and come in for criticism from time to time but without it animal welfare in this country would be in a poorer state.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Tilly.I am shocked that the R$PCA would do something like this when they are excellent charity groups like German Sheperd Rescue out there.I have had many German Sheperd Dogs and have donated to G.S.R I don't think there was anything cynical about tilly putting this message up here she obviously likes German Sheperd Dogs and thought it should be highlighted

One thing I've noticed with the RSPCA is that whereas in the old days they used to wear plain clothing they are now in militaristic uniforms, including the shoulder pips, scrambled egg on the higher up hats, which are also militaristic. The Wooly Pully, the shirts ties and all the other paraphanelia, the latest vehicles and so on. Since when is all this crap needed to look after animal welfare? That's where a lot of the money is going. They can do this because old people leave them thousands of quid a time in bequests and I personally think it is an abuse of funding. They will never get a penny from this geezer. That's just my opinion and something I've noticed, ditto Oxfam.

You've got to wonder about a charity of this size, how many directors it needs to be paid to keep it running? I don't really know how it works, but it seems to be fairly well established.
I bought a normal everyday cat for 40 from the Leasowe RSPCA, which was quite shocking in a wayn (seeing as you can get a kittne for free). I wasn't expecting to pay -that- much, seeing as they are trying to rehome animals. This must be why some of the animals are getting put down, the HUGE Sale price is getting in the way.

Violet - They charge you because they need to pass the cost of injections etc to someone, atleast you know your cat is healthy.

Also, they charge so people dont go and get a few cats and abuse them or sell them on.

I might be wrong saying the money was for injections, but the money is recouped because they've done something to the animal (health check? Vet bill? Im unsure)

i dont know what your on about with donation links thats not why i posted this thread, and wether people are up their own arses in that area has nothing to do with what the rspca did to these dogs in south wales.

as to the other replies
all i was asking was, whats your opinion on the rspca now that you know what they have been doing with donations.
yes i love dogs but the fact that i posted this is to highlight the goings on within a rescue organisation that is supposed to help animals. there is nothing sinister in my post, the reason i have'nt posted anything to do with wirral is i have'nt found anything worth posting that is'nt already covered here. i am a newbie to this site but not to the wirral by any means i was trying to take an active part in the site. nothing sinister in that is there..
