UK - RSPCA Destroys HALF the animals it rescues!

Revealed: RSPCA destroys HALF of the animals that it rescues - yet thousands are completely healthy! Shock figures reveal 3,400 animals put down for 'non-medical reasons'.. Whistleblower claims she shot healthy dogs 'because there was no room'.. Statistics show 10,000 fewer animals were rehomed in 2011. But charity's prosecutions of rogue pet owners leap 20 per cent. Countryside Alliance says charity should lose right to call itself Royal. The animal-welfare charity destroyed 53,000 animals last year – 44 per cent of those it took in – leading critics to claim that the organisation spends too much time on prosecuting cases of neglect and cruelty and not enough on finding new homes for animals. The charity insists the vast majority of the animals were put down to end their suffering, but it admits that last year alone 3,400 animals were destroyed for ‘non-medical’ reasons, such as the lack of space in kennels and catteries.

  2. I don't think you could ever spend to much time on prosecuting for neglect and cruelty. I feel they should be able to do more about all the issues at hand. Are we dealing with morons that can't muti task because the way I see it is protect and fight for animals who don't have A voice and find good loving homes for these voiceless loving animals

    1. Unfortunately teresa there are only so many "good loving homes" for these poor furbabies to go to.There comes a time when all who are willing and able to take them just can't any more because they have no more room. I hate the idea of healthy animals being shot but what is the alternative?Have them crammed up in pens till they can't move?better to be put out of their misery and far far better to make it law that ALL puppies and kittens are de-sexed BEFORE they can be sold and ONLY legitimate breeders can sell them not pet shops who source their animals from puppy mills
