Nobody is having a go at you personally shebajet, and i can see you are very protective of the RSPCA, and yes they do save animals agreed, i admire the work you do and anybody else that works in any kind of rescue situation.... but as you can see, and i know many more, the RSPCA have put so many people off, which is a shame..

i used to make regular donations to the RSPCA, but now i tend to donate to dogs trust and the PDSA... xx

Ive had good and bad experiences with the RSPCA. Recently though I contacted the RSPCA regarding some ponies I was concerned about. They were not particularly helpful. However, I also contacted the Horse Welfare Society and within two days someone had been to check on the ponies and also left me a telephone message with a telephone number to ring for further information.

I have read all your comments here. I was reported to RSPCA once. Our cat went missing (presumed dead - before my bengal girls) and we re homed a feral kitten who never became a nice domesticated cat. He lived mostly outside coming in to eat and hide from the weather.
When we were on holiday (the cats had a person coming to feed them and a cat flap) someone did something to him or he did it to himself but his fur solidified completely on his back, as if someone poured glue on him.
Took him to the vet and the only thing was to shave him. He then looked awful, with tufs of hair here and there and no wonder someone reported us.

The lady came in, I locked the cat flap to catch him if he comes in to show her but he never turned up. She told me straight away after hearing the story that my home smelled lovely, my other cat looked good and she had no concerns about the story being true.

But I don't doubt that the stories I read about are true. I think that when people get to some sort of power, they think they can do what they like, often forgetting the law. Then it pretty much comes down to those smart enough to argue like Louise did about her dog, or those that take their authority to mean the law and allow them to do what they like. It is sad that they have such strick policy on re homing, especially when they destroy the animals that don't find the home :(
