RSPCA to close top hospitals to raise millions — 2 Comments

  1. Very much what we at The SHG have been saying for years. As the RSPCA upsets is base supporters they, and everyone they speak to, stops donating.

    The downhill slide began well before the problems with lockdown. It is arguable that only some large legacies pulled them through the previous couple of years.

    They really need to go back to rescuing animals and helping (not prosecuting) people who have got into difficulties, often through no fault of their own..

    Successive governments who have all been only too happy to get animal welfare “on the cheap” have ignored the complaints from the public about the bullying behaviour of the RSPCA. Worse, now that the RSPCA close their helpline overnight and are simply not doing a fraction of the things they used to do, the police and local authorities who were empowered under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 are simply not geared up and ready to pick up the slack.

    • I completely agree with you as you know. They should go back to what they did originally which was rescue animals and helping people rescue animals and save them. It’s about that personal, on the ground, work which they are so very good at or were. I think they lost, as you say, their supporters or a good percentage of them which has reduced their donations. And yes, it happened a long time before lockdown. Lockdown just exacerbated the problem. Thanks for commenting by the way.
