Sack The RSPCA

8/11/09

MAKE THE RSPCA ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PUBLIC, FOR THE SAKE OF THE ANIMALS THE CLAIM TO WANT TO HELP

(unknown source)

We rely on the RSPCA as we rely on the Police, Ambulance Service or Fire Brigade. These are the people we turn to and this is the organisation who have the funds and backing to prosecute us if we fail to abide by the Animal Welfare Act.

And rightly so! So what makes the RSPCA different?

Unlike the other organisations mentioned here the RSPCA has no obligation under the Freedom of Information Act to the public who pay their wages. If we feel that they have acted inappropriately we don't have a legal right to answers from them.

Is this acceptable?

In the light of the RSPCA’s recent killing with a captive bolt gun of ten German Shepherd Dogs I believe it is not acceptable.

The RSPCA says of the Freedom of Information Act;

"The RSPCA does not believe that it has any formal obligation under the Act. It is not a designated public authority. However, the Society fully supports the principle of openness and will endeavour to supply information to enquirers whenever possible.

As a charity relying entirely on voluntary donations, the Society will have to take into account the purpose of any request for information and the costs involved in providing it for the enquirer."

The RSPCA appear to be reluctant to answer certain questions regarding those ten German Shepherd Dogs and are perhaps concerned about the "purpose of any request for information" when concerned individuals and animal welfare organisations have asked.

DO THE ANIMALS THE RSPCA CLAIMS TO WANT TO HELP AND THE PUBLIC WHO PAY THEIR WAGES NOT DESERVE MORE ACCOUNTABILITY THAN THIS?

STOP FEEDING MUCH NEEDED RESOURCES TO THIS CRUEL, RUTHLESS BUSINESS OPERATION.
