Busy Year for RSPCA in Albany

Busy Year for RSPCA in Albany

RSPCA WA's Albany based Inspector investigated more than 200 complaints involving nearly 400 animals in the last financial year.

"It's a terrific result for Inspector Taye," RSPCA WA President Lynne Bradshaw said.

"There are four prosecutions currently under consideration and we want to make very clear that where animal cruelty is concerned RSPCA WA will prosecute to the full extent of the law without fear or favour for all creatures great or small."

Of the complaints received 181 involved domestic animals, 104 involved livestock and four were for
native animals.

The RSPCA also has an Auxiliary and Volunteers working in the Albany area.

"Our auxiliaries and volunteers do an amazing job supporting the work of the RSPCA," Mrs Bradshaw
said. "The Albany Auxiliary was formed in 2001 beginning with an Op Shop. It raises funds to run the re-homing program, a cat and dog sterilization program for local pensioners and health care card holders as well as supporting the work of the RSPCA. "

"The Auxiliary also runs a Prison Dog Program which currently has 2 dogs in placement at the Albany prison. Over 10 dogs have gone through the Program and been rehomed. "
"It is also involved with various fundraising activities, including the Albany Agricultural Show and the local Million Paws Walk," she said.

While in Albany, Mrs Bradshaw and CEO David van Ooran, held meetings with MLA Peter Watson and the City of Albany.
