HERALD readers may be familiar with the story of Max the Pointer, killed at RSPCA Rutherford last year despite his owner being given more time to pay the impound fee, and him wearing a rescue group tag with phone number.
According to RSPCA NSW’s 2012 figures, they euthanised over 14,000 cats and dogs out of an intake of 28,000.
For the RSPCA, the Million Paws Walk at Morpeth Common on May 19 is, I believe, a public relations opportunity.
It is also a chance to add to its $10 million annual profits and huge share portfolio.
For others, like myself, it is day of sorrow, a sad reminder that RSPCA’s cycle is about to start again.
We will mourn the death of Max and thousands of other innocents, and encourage the RSPCA to see that it must change its ways.
