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.
