Well I don't know what the SPCA is like where you are but they are hopeless here, they hardly ever bother to investigate complaints and they only keep cats for a max of 24 hours before euthanasia, dogs they keep up to three days. Some animals are put down on the spot. A kitten was found lost, it had run away from the owners house, the SPCA put it down immediately because they believed it had ring worm, did they bother to get the vet to look at it...... no. The kitten had simply had an allergic reaction to a flea shampoo that the owners had been using when the kitten escaped. Later that day the owners asked the SPCA had they seen or heard anything about their kitten. They came back and gave them the dead cat. The owners were horrified.
Our neighbor worked for them at the time and quit because of the terrible things that were happening that he did not agree with. I believe that the SPCA does a wonderful job in some areas but in our local area they are not all cracked up what they are supposed to be.
