    We also had a fantastic day, Rex was awesome! thought he might play up with the amount of dogs around. I was very proud of him.

    Wasn't too bad with the crowding - i suspect that most would have gone to the Gold Coast as they would have had more stalls etc so i was glad that there was still a great turnout where we were, but not to a great extent where you felt claustrophobic. No fights, all dogs were in great control was awesome! Very scenic walk, met some great people and pooches and will definitely go again next year.

    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    To me, those things sound wonderful, but I always think, those many dogs... there'll be fights or close calls. Mind you, I'm too far away AND I prefer to donate to the little, private rescues. They do a lot more, for less and almost all have a no kill policy.

    The final nail in the coffin, was 2 years in a row, at least 3 people lost the dogs they loved, at these walks. Some never got them back. Some of them may have been found or taken, by people deliberately there. If you found a loose dog, in good con, possibly trailing a lead... You would know it would be far from a stray. Not nice.

    Yes, I agree with you on the RSPCA, our local one here in Noosa is disgraceful, it is mainly run by bitter old "bitches", who have been there for 40 years, and are SO NASTY to volunteers ( no one volunteers anymore), so now they get forced "community service people" because they can be as nasty and bossy as they like and they cant leave.
    I have had more than one run in with them in the past.

    The RSPCA get government funding, and not sure about other states , but here they are nothing more than glorifed council holding pounds and kill centers.
    The council picks up stray and takes them to the RSPCA, who holds them for the applicable period then gives them the green needle, unless they are lucky enough to be saved by rescue groups, (who DONT GET GOVERNMENT FUNDING).

    While i feel the info the public from the rspca is finally getting on track....as far as im concerned they have lost the original priorities and are more a business now...than a care org. Luckily we have no kill shelters taking over the care, they dont provide anymore.
    In the past few years I watch the webite to see how many dogs are on there website for adoption, there is usually no more than 10 or so, and everytime i have been there they have only ever had a few dogs and the runs are almost empty, yet they tell the public they have SO MANY dogs, they need more donations that is my experience of NOOSA RSPCA.
    I support the Sippy downs no kill shelter, they always take dogs from the RSPCA before they are put down, even the real oldies and care for them for life.

    Soul sister, there, cavqld. I knew a cat mad woman who volunteered at one, and fell in love with a cat and left a note to say if it wasn't claimed or sold, she would take it, SO NOT TO PUT IT DOWN, but the old biddy in charge,hated her, removed the note and she came back and it was done. Women, when they turn, are far scarier than men - and I say that of my own sex, in sadness. That woman set up a cat rescue of her own, and ran it far better, but to my shock, she did have a pull the pin day, and she got a dog, and to my amazement, was so cold and unempathetic about it, a little puppy. Didn't even get a rescue dog, but bought a puppy and it was still less than 4 mths, when she decided to get rid of it. Wouldn't let me rehome it, but sold it, to get her money back.

    Extraordinary learning curve, for me, that a devoted carer of one species, could be quite cold and bleak to another. I truly was shocked and disbelieving.

    PS Glad you had a great day, Ruby mc
