    maddogdodge, you may also want to google "Moorook animal shelter" and see what the RSPCA has done there.

    I do not suppor the RSPCA. They could do so much good, working in collaboration with organisations such as breed-specific rescues and in the community educating the public, but the powers that be choose not to. I hope that changes very soon.

    Ya dont just dump of a dog for these F'd up reasons let alone one thats done the hard yards for you already and has buckleys of finding a new home. May karma haunt those who do it for the rest of thier pathetic lives.
    I completely agree Sean! I would rather be short for money any day as long as i have my dogs. It would be a nicer life than being rich without my dogs!

    A few more reasons...

    BSL

    A law unto themselves

    Money Hungry

    Standover tactics

    Lack of knowledge of dogs or dog breeds

    Moronic Temp tests as shown on that stupid R$PCA show

    Use dogs to milk money from a gullible public then kill the dogs.

    Hugh Wirthless


    In 2004 a pitbull named Clifford was thrown from a car in Sydney and was hurt...he was taken to the R$PCA...they mounted a huge campaign...save poor Clifford...please give as much as you can to save this dog.

    Gave updates...saying Clifford is much loved by staff and walks around the office...please make a donation so we can save more lovely dog like him.
    The R$PCA raised $3500 for Clifford...then released a statement two months later that Clifford had become aggressive and was put to sleep...what they didn't say was policy is to not re-home Pitbulls...they used this poor dog to get money...then killed him. Poor Clifford was dead as soon as he fell into the hands of this evil...vile private organization...Shame...Shame...Shame...R$PCA.

    And of cause there's this...

    If people want to give money to them...just remember what they do with it...maybe you'll think twice.

    Findeb....believe me i'm all for supporting abolishing puppy farms....I've never heard of debra before. I'm really hoping she has nothing to do with PETA. I jut cant bring myelf to support anything they do. They have cost me alot of grief in the last few years. If it's not PETA ..then i'm all for oscars law .
    I'm pretty sure she's not associated with PETA Sean, but about to do a "google-off" to find out for sure coz Dr Google will know!!

    Unfortunately some people don't see puppies as part of the family, once they've grown up or chew or pee or jump, they end up in pound or at RSPCA. Then there's the I don't have time for him, We're having a baby, We're going overseas, We're splitting up ads on Gumtree, heart-breaking....

    I'm a fisherman.....and a spear fisher...i obey the size limits and bag limits. My favourite spots are out of bounds due to them and thier green party mates...diffrent names same mob. Bob brown and his cronies........they sit behind desks and draw red lines. They havnt got a clue. The people that care fort thier environments the most are the people who earn a feed from it. Poor environment means no fish...or whatever the prey may be. Without a healthy environment our way of life is gone. We do more for our environment than any suit and tie in canberra could ever do. PETA.....using porn. While i love to see Pamela Anderson naked as much as the next guy it goes to show how low they'll stoop to push thier misinformed B.S. Google it lads..well worth a looksy. Speaking of extremists...the bloke who 'captains' Sea Sheperd vessels...is a bloody pirate. He'll kill someone soon and more than likely one of his own crew. I bet a million bucks Aussies will cough up a heap of coin soon to save the life of one of his crew. No wonder Greenpeace dont want to know about him. No google involved with that info either...straight from the horses mouth.

    Like Kurt Cobain said....its OK to eat fish because they dont have any feelings.....even a drugged out grunger has more common sense than PETA. (No offence to Kurt...i love the bloke).

    I'm with most on this one, RSPCA are not perfect, but they do a great job with limited resources trying to tackle an ever increasing problem. Tackle the problem, not the poor mob trying to deal with the consequences.

    And I'm with you Sean on PETA and other extreme environmentalists. We are well on our way to destroying our local fishing industry while we import fish from countries with poor fisheries management, no environmental or water quality standards and dubious food safety standards. This is a link to a promo for a documentary that is being made about it:

    Drawing The Line Documentary Full documentary coming in the next few months.

    And this one about the Tacoma, a boat built in the 1950s and considered to be the "super trawler" of its time. It basically established Port Lincoln:

    Three Men and a Boat - Landline - ABC

    Definition of a "super trawler"? any boat that's bigger than mine. I know for a fact that there are now completely demoralised fisheries scientists working for the the Australian Fisheries Management Authority who are now asking themselves what on earth they are being paid for, why they don't just put it out on Twitter, "hey Australian public, what do you think the quota for X fishery should be?" because it is now social media and political arse-covering that is driving our fisheries management and environmental protection decisions, not science.

    There is NO food source that is without impacts on its environment, including a vegan diet. I've been involved in the fishing industry for more than 30 years and it breaks my heart seeing what is being done to them now after the incredible work that's been done over the past 15 or 20 years in terms of gear improvements, quotas, bycatch reduction and world class fisheries management.

    I've seen them rehome plenty of pitbulls before, have you got any proof that they don't rehome them? What proof have you got that he didn't turn aggressive?
    For any dog, being thrown out of a car can be quite traumatising, mix that with a likely previous life of mistreatment and then 2 months of vet work, surgery, medication, bandaging, injections etc and it really wouldn't be a surprise if the poor dog turned aggressive, I've seen it happen plenty of times in horses, dogs, cats. I knew a horse who badly hurt his leg, months of painful treatment turned him from a lovely, friendly animal to one that was so dangerous, you couldn't walk up to him in the paddock without him trying to bite or kick you and he had to be pts because he was too dangerous, how is that any different? Would it of been better for them to rehome poor Clifford, have him one day put in another stressful situation like yearly vaccinations or a person who might look similar to the vet and he 'ticks' and attacks them... What will that achieve? More negative exposure for the pitbull breed.

    Sometimes it's easy to jump to conclusions when you are so passionate about something but you must remember that there are always two sides to a story.

    RSPCA - I've got mixed feelings...

    Their boarding kennels - gave my dog a bad tummy rash - even after I warned them she was prone and to check - they never did - because - she didn't chew at it when they were looking. Nope - she chews at it about an hour before sunrise so they're not going to see that unless they sleep in the same room as her.

    And a friend's dogs recently came back with all sorts of gut problems - but she let them feed their food so not very surprised there.

    that's the boarding kennels. Sigh. Less than perfect. At least they didn't adopt the evil hound to a new home - cos that was what I was most afraid of. And the SA mob have actually done that too. They didn't check the microchip on a "surrendered" dog to make sure the person who surrendered it - actually owned it - they didn't.

    But most of that is details.

    Anyway about the fishing marine parks. You really can't lump all greenies or animal welfare activists in the PETA boat. That's like lumping all Christians in with Fred Nile. Or all muslims in with the Taliban. Or all rednecks in with Gina Rhinehart.

    So - I went out and did groper surveys around the toothy end of Eyre Peninsula with a guy who was expert in fish surveys. The fish actually followed him around underwater like he was their best friend. It was amazing to watch.

    They have found with Lobster and Abalone and quite a few fish species - that if they make a no-fish zone around their nurseries - that areas outside the no-fish - then have more fish than if you let everyone fish where ever they want when ever they want. You still get the bastards who cheat the system but there are fewer people fishing those spots overall - and that makes more fish everywhere else. Ie there are more fish available for fishos with the no fish zones than there were when they could fish anywhere.

    It's hard to get the fishos to see this - they have to actually experience it.

    Scuba divers can see it.

    The are a lot of negatives in the face of the RSPCA. I can only write what I know and have heard/experienced regarding them.

    A friend of mine had two English Staffies. They got out of their yard last year. They were picked up by the ranger and taken to the RSPCA. When they got home it was too late to collect them so the next morning she called to see if they were there.

    She explained what her dogs looked like and their names etc. she was put in hold for 10mins then the staff member came bak ad explained that her male had been PTS but her female was fine. They gave no reason other than it was a mistake. He was a very friendly happy dog and all we can gather is that he was put in the wrong cage and was PTS by mistake. She was devastated but didn't think she could do anything. I told her she should make a complaint but she didn't.

    In regards to oscars law, there is a possibility that the funds collected for te rallies, etc is being incorrectly used by the top peeps and that previous commitee members have left the organisation because of this. I know one of the original members that started Oscars Law and they, along with 4-5 others left within the first 12months because of this but were unable to stop it and they felt the best option was to abandon.

    As I said, this is just what I know. People will always make their own judgements and opinions and only the people at the top of the two groups know the truth.
