You guys are crazy. Do you think the RSPCA has the money and resources to house the pets for as long as they deserve? Have you been to your local RSPCA lately? Made a donation to them lately??? Most of you will answer no.. Well why don't you support RSPCA on making the change instead of criticizing them for the hard decisions they need to make. They can't save every animal and they do the best they can. Also a point to remember.. They are only human and this sounds like it was a mistake.....

I think you should all be ashamed for bagging out RSPCA when they do such a good job- better than you! Don't cut off your nose to spite your face.

Im sorry Karen but you are wrong - I read stories every day from Rescue Groups here in WA who are full to the brim and get calls from people who have been referred to them by the RSPCA - who say they are full when they arent. I have personally called them to ask for help and been denied, and also referred to Rescue Groups- groups who survive mostly on the good will of their carers and little else. The RSPCA get funded and recently in Perth were given over 1/2 million dollars in a bequest...

Max is not the first nor will he be the last - until the dealings are made public and more people become aware of what they are really doing.

Do you know how much of their donations are genuinely used for animals? Perhaps 10%

The RSPCA has both the money and the resources. Have a look at their Government funding, oh and then have a look at the bequests. Yes, they do save some animals but they need to change the way they operate NOW.

Not to mention pet insurance advertising and so much more. I donate as well. Think I may buy a property to rehouse these beautiful critters. There is a pet for everyone at least four weeks of trying really hard for a new person may have been acceptable. Poor boy wouldn't have known what hit him going to such a location after having his own family. I feel sad. Very sad

YAPS (young animal protection society) in cairns dont kill their housed cats or dogs, every animal is found a home..100's of volonteers work walk and raise the money.

YAPS may have a no kill policy, but they turn away countless animals because they do not have the room because of keeping the animals indefinitely. This is a 'rock and a hard place' dilema- what do you do? When was the last time any of you people commenting on this adopted a cat, dontated land to build new kennels, volunteered, donated - it goes on and on? This is not easy. And what were Max's owners doing deciding to go off travelling long term while they still had the responsibility of a...

This is not the RSPCA's fault....

I never stop being amazed about how ignorant PPL like this get away with exploiting & treating Animals so unfairly..It makes me so ashamed to be the same species they are..

Fantastic to see someone is willing to speak up. RSPCA receives Govt funding and many large donations. They are top heavy with Executive salaries and they do not provide the support that animals need. I am from Broome and we have just submitted a letter to the local paper pointing out that RSPCA has no presence in the Kimberley, all the animal rescue is done by the local rangers and SAFE Broome (all volunteers). Unfortunately the rangers and SAFE have no authority to enter a property when...

Fantastic to see someone is willing to speak up. RSPCA receives Govt funding and many large donations. They are top heavy with Executive salaries and they do not provide the support that animals need. I am from Broome and we have just submitted a letter to the local paper pointing out that RSPCA has no presence in the Kimberley, all the animal rescue is done by the local rangers and SAFE Broome (all volunteers). Unfortunately the rangers and SAFE have no authority to enter a property when animals are in need. Recently we knew of a paddock full of horses starving to death. Unable to enter the property we called RSPCA to be advised they have no funding for the Kimberley.
To further insult the situation RSPCA also runs A Paws Walk in Broome and takes all the money out of the region - a region whose dogs are in a worse condition than dogs in Bali

What good is the RSPCA?? they dont come and help the animals when u call, all they do is spend dead peoples money on their offices, for comfort for themselves, the money is suppose to be for the animals, imagine if the public knew the truth, we are only a minority of animal lovers that work with in rescue and know the truth behind the lies.. One day i wish for them to be shut down, and given the reins to convict animal cruelty/neglect/abandonment to be given to the smaller rescues that...

RSPCA are shit.

poor animals! The more I read about men's cruelty, the more I feel ashamed of belonging to this "humanity". We should change our definition:
"beasts" woul be more appropriate Daniela Disconzi

The RSPCA entered my neighbors private property recently because some idiot reported their lamb did not have any water. The owner was home luckily and too the inspector around the side of the house where there was a bath tub full of water. The idiots did not apologize . Said it was their job. Try telling the bastards that thousands of domestic bunnies are locked up in filthy dark sheds and are legally being bred for restaurants and they dont give a stuff, even though they have seen these...

Try telling the bastards that thousands of domestic bunnies are locked up in filthy dark sheds and are legally being bred for restaurants and they dont give a stuff, even though they have seen these photos taken at registered factory farms in Victoria. Check this out and it will have you scratching your heads wondering why the RSPCA are not investigated and their funds cut immediately. " freedomforfarmedrabbits .com" This is an Australian web site believe it or not. Thought this type of cruelty only would exist in China .

I DO NOT AND WILL NOT support the RSPCA. It has lost the plot for why it was created in the first place. It is a pity the Government throws money at the RSPCA - without checking what it is actually doing.
Give it to the smaller shelters - they have a better rehoming rate.
SHAME on you RSPCA.

Thanks RSPCA WA. I have seen a lot of negative comments made on social media about those puppies. I do hope those people see that you have made enquiries. I also hope people slowly learn what is within and outside of your powers. I thank you for doing a great job with limited resources. I'm looking forward to the Million Paws Walk to show my support for you guys...!
