GSD Shot by RSPCA

German Shepherds SLAUGHTERED by the RSPCA

Press Release from SHG: RSPCA ATTEMPTS TO CENSOR THE INTERNET AND SUPPRESS CRITICISM. NB, we are not responsible for the content on external websites.

Please note that we use the word slaughter because the dogs were shot with a captive bolt gun which is a device used in slaughter houses to STUN livestock.

This story first broke here on the Many Tears website

OCT 1st 2009 STOP PRESS: The legal team from the UK's largest and richest animal welfare charity, have today contacted this rescue threatening to sue for Trademark Infringement for using the acronym that is their name. If you have made a will that contains this acronym, please contact your solicitor immediately to ensure you don't infringe their trademark. We have checked and it is OK to replace offending acronym with 'CINNAMON TRUST'. Robert Killick writing for Our Dogs Says

The RSPCA Statement We believe if you are an animal lover you will be horrified!!!!

'Expert Witness' comments on the RSPCA Statement

Are these the answers from the RSPCA - very wealthy charity?

Yes, this happened here in the UK, not some 3rd world country.We hope you are as disgusted as we are. Hard to believe that an organisation claiming to be acting in the best interests of the animals would SLAUGHTER 10 GSD with a captive bolt. There are many GSD rescues this one included, who would have taken these dogs and rehabilitated them

If you have donated to the RSPCA we suggest that you ask them for your money back. We believe you have been deceived. Suggested letter to the RSPCA

RSPCA slughter 10 GSD's

What the RSPCA don't want you to know!!

Thank you for your further enquiry. 

Yes, they were. A decision was made following a discussion between eight RSPCA officers that the most humane form of euthanasia would be to use a captive bolt. This would minimise distress to the dogs, while also being the safest method for those people responsible for dealing with the animals. Restraining the dogs and then shaving a limb to prepare for a lethal injection would have caused these animals unnecessary suffering, due to the animals suffering from a severe skin condition. 

Thank you again for contacting the Society. 

Kind regards

We believe that a captive bolt gun needs to be held up close against the dogs head - were not these dogs to aggressive to home? How did they get that close? The RSPCA felt the week before, the owners should try to find a rescue to take them, were they not aggressive then, was the skin healthy then? Are the RSPCA not able to help dogs with bad skin? Ask questions PLEASE!!!!!

We wonder if the dead owner knew about the wonderful home 4 life scheme offered by the RSPCA

'Home for life is the RSPCA's free service, giving pet owners peace of mind. It means we'll do all we can to find a new, loving home for your pet if you should die.Too many cats and dogs are left homeless after their owners pass away. Now you can ensure they're properly looked after should anything happen.'

Unfortunately, they don't tell you that they WILL put your dog down if a new home can't be found.

don't leave me to die in the hands of the rspca

They Shoot Dogs Don't they? They certainly do. TWO basset hounds abandoned on an Ipswich pavement were later taken away and shot by the RSPCA

 

Thank you for your enquiry. Please accept our apologies for the delay in replying. We receive a very large volume of enquiries here and have to prioritise to deal with urgent animal welfare issues first. 

There has been some misinformation posted with regard to this case. The facts are as follows: 

We received a call on 23 June this year from a member of the public relating to 10 German Shepherd dogs at an address in Pontardawe, in South Wales. The caller said the dog's owner, a relative, had died and the dogs had been living on their own. 

An RSPCA inspector visited the premises that day and assessed the animals. The inspector took the decision that none of the dogs were at all suitable for rehoming due to concerns about their aggressive behaviour and lack of socialisation with people. The dogs were also suffering from a severe skin condition. 

We explained the next-of-kin that they should contact other rescue groups for help. The next-of-kin were made fully aware that if the RSPCA became involved, the dogs would be euthanised. 

The owners next-of-kin later contacted the RSPCA again and said they had been turned down by other charities who were unwilling to take on the animals and they signed over the dogs, fully aware of what would happen. 

It is the RSPCAs raison d'etre to prevent cruelty to animals, and it was decided this sad, but ultimately necessary, outcome for the dogs was the best way to prevent the animals any further suffering. The decision was not made lightly and, as always, it was made with the best interests of the animal at heart. 

Thank you again for contacting the Society. 

Kind regards
