    A page out of a book is little comfort to all those pits who have been sent to the Bridge courtesy of the RSPCA.
    They are certainly not the saintly organisation that you seem to think it is.
    My lord. You are slandering them by stating that they encourage BSL. You are slandering them period. I don't believe they are saintly at all, but I have worked for them and volunteered for them. Have you?

    Prove what you are saying then I'll come to the party. I know what happens in the shelters, I know what their stance is, it is on paper, it is everywhere. Hugh Wirth MAY be the head of RSPCA Vic, he does NOT state their official stance. What he says is used because it makes sensational news.

    Chops, do you not understand that they have to follow the council laws and regulations in each area? That they do not have a choice but to comply and do what is required by that law? Is that too hard to comprehend for you?

    If there is a law set by council for an area all rescues, shelters etc MUST follow that law. No exceptions.

    Now that is laughable.
    Of course they bypass laws and regs if and when it suits them. Clifford springs to mind as just one example. How about a litter of 21 day old puppies PTS forno reason other then being Pits.

    No,I'm not slandering and look to be quite honest I will continue to say what I want about them. No I have not volenteered at an RSPCA shelter , your point? I mean really , it makes no difference that you have , or would you like a pat on the back.

    Now lets leave it before it really erupts and the Mods have to clean up the mess.

    I don't need a pat on the back thank you. The dogs lives that I have saved, and have helped are more than reqard enough. My point is how on earth do you know what goes on? You've never been involved with the organisation so you have not got a clue!

    While fanatics are at the helm of trying to prove their dogs aren't dangerous all they are doing is proving what the media has said, namely that the people owning these breeds are as dangerous as their dogs. That they are fanatical, implying that they are unstable.

    I disagree with BSL completely and wholeheartedly. So does the RSPCA. Hell it states they do on their website! It as good as states Blame the deed not the breed and that people need to be more responsible!! Evidently that is not good enough for those attempting to lead the fight against BSL. Until dog owners work together as a whole to fight it and until the fanatics make way for one of the VERY FEW organisations that is politically able to change things the breed is doomed. And that is the greatest shame of all.

    What are you expecting? Them to approach a group who are doing nothing but bad mouthing the organisation and say "Please we want to help, let us help you."? Yeah right! That will not happen, because they know if they make an offer like that they have, as you said yourself, had their slogan changed to add on "For All Creatures Great and Small, Except the APBT". Would you approach a group of people who have done nothing but slander you? I can tell you right now, I don't know ANYONE who would.

    There is no way in the world anyone will be able to successfully fight any law using slogans that cuss, rude signals and by alienating the few that can help them.

    Yes the RSPCA do make exceptions from the law when they can. What do you expect them to do? Exempt themselves from the law in every case? That is not feasible.

    I mean no offence with what I am saying but surely you can see my point? I have been there, giving them their last cuddle goodbye. I have been there when their owners are crying their eyes out trying to do anything they can to save their dogs. I have held peoples hands and done what I could to comfort them. I have tried everything I can to save as many as I can, oh but wait, it's not good enough because I'm doing it with an organisation that didn't support using a slogan of a hand giving the bird.....

    I heard again today the dog was her sons and he had been away and the dog had become quite distressed, thus why it attacked. It seems like the media can't make up its mind.

    I too will never ever like or support the RSPCA.

    I have had a not so nice experience with their kennel staff, if what the staff said to me about SBT's being aggressive killers etc was used to describe a person then it would be classed as racism etc.

    IMO the RSPCA are over rated.

    I'm afraid that I am not a fan of the RSPCA either, at least here in Sydney, and that is through my own dealing with them on several occasions. Let's just say that after one situation that I was involved in I shall make sure that if anything happens to me that none of my animals will ever end up in their hands (luckily I already have a backup in that situation anyway), and I am going to make sure that it is stated in my Will when I next update it.

    I don't blame the "little people" that work for them, it's the management that I have the issue with.

    I don't agree with everything the RSPCA does, and the behaviour of the staff differs from place to place.

    My point is that they are big enough, and have enough influence to change the law. They've done it before and can do it again. Until APBT fanciers and Bull Breed fanciers stop being so fanatical about BSL, their behaviour is only going to justify what the powers that be believe.

    I hate BSL with a passion, but by alienating the cause from the biggest animal welfare organisation in the country, the fight against BSL has already been lost.

    The RSPCA our vet associate with are fantastic, so I can't really follow with what everyones saying about them being not-so-good.
