"Pet owners would become annoyed that they weren't getting seen quick enough," he said.

"Animal owners can visit the nearby RSPCA clinic in Wallasey"

Oh great, transfer the fookwits to the Wallasey branch so that one can close due to abuse by morons.

I'm not going to say Birkenhead is full of knuckledragging arseholes, but Birkenhead is full of knuckledragging arseholes. It's a disgrace.

Apparantley the receptionist was a snotty arrogant cow and upset many people who were going through stressful times enough at it was with their poorly pooches, she had been there years aswell. Some people just bring it on themselves im afraid! the Rspca was a mess anyway and their policy of putting healthy dogs to sleep without doing proper checks, and just taking the word of the heartless owner was disgusting, especially the way they used to just leave them upstairs in a room until the end of the day before putting them to sleep was barbaric,the sooner we get a PDSA built here the better!

I would like to say that the Wallasey RSPCA are great.
I got a cat from there and they were really helpful.
It is sad for Birkenhead that this has happend though.

The majority of abuse at these places are financial abuse, people using them who have no need to and don't qualify to, I'm not sure how you prove your on benefits, i suppose these people borrow the means off people who are, or maybe they just turn up in a tracksuit with the dog in a matching tracksuit.

I never had any problems there. The lady there was always nice when I was there it's such a shame some people ruin it for everyone.

To be seen in the RSPCA your animal needs to be micro-chipped and to prove my benefits I always used my post office account letter.

Ive never known the receptžonist to be snotty. Sounds like she got aggro though, so wouldnt be surprised if she retaliated.
