In its ‘RSPCA policies on animal welfare’ it states under its Objects of the RSPCA that ‘The charitable objects of the RSPCA are to promote kindness and to prevent or suppress cruelty to animals

The RSPCA’s vision is, ‘To work for a world in which all humans respect and live in harmony with all other members of the animal kingdom

Under its Mission Statement, the RSPCA declares ‘The RSPCA as a charity will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering.’

And under their General Principles, the RSPCA states ‘The general principles on which the RSPCA operates, derived from extensive scientific evidence, is based on the fact that vertebrates and some invertebrates are sentient, and can feel pain and distress.’

What happened to all those honorable and admirable objects, visions, statements and principles when RSPCA inspectors arrived at an address in South Wales and proceeded to slaughter ten German Shepherd dogs with a captive bolt?

In developing countries the World Society for Protection of Animals are preventing the culling of dogs by barbaric methods:

In the UK, an RSPCA inspector is sent out to do the culling. One of their favourite weapons is the captive bolt gun - a method deemed unacceptable by the WSPA.

'As there is a high risk of mis-stunning through inadequate use of the penetrating captive bolt, and hence causing pain and distress, WSPA considers this an unacceptable method for the euthanasia of dogs and cats.'

It's not strays that are at risk from the RSPCA (they don't help strays) but peoples pets - so make sure you have made a will so that your pets don't end up in their hands when you are gone.

'With a lack of knowledge and resources, communities in developing countries frequently resort to randomly culling strays, by poisoning, electrocuting or shooting dogs.

These methods are inhumane, causing the animals great pain and suffering. They are also ineffective in the long term as they do not address the cause of the problem.'

But your buddies the RSPCA think it's OK to shoot dogs. They don't use free bullets though - too expensive.

In Bali the WSPA have been working with the Bali Animal Welfare Association to promote:

'Vaccination, education, compassion'
In some countries, dog control officers armed with shotguns randomly shoot dogs in the streets.

In the UK RSPCA inspectors are happy to do it in peoples back gardens!

'Over the longer term, WSPA is helping reduce stray dog populations by educating people about responsible dog ownership. We're making sure owners know about sterilizing and caring for their animals. So that people won't abandon dogs, we're encouraging them to register their pets and we're getting governments to help through compulsory registration. WSPA is also helping enforce animal welfare legislation so people will treat pets humanely.

WSPA works to provide education about responsible pet ownership: dog identification, vaccination and neutering means fewer animals will end up on the street.

Our vision is that all countries will use effective and cruelty free methods of stray population management that address the roots of the problem.'

We think you had better speak to your buddies at the RSPCA in the UK then!

But lets not forget the joint statement by the WSPA and their buddies at the RSPCA - trying desperately to cover each other ass!

We think their slogan should be:

"By joining The WSPA Animal Rescue Team or making an urgent donation today, you can also help ensure that when dogs are slaughtered like vermin we will issue a joint press release with the perpetrators condoning it."
