Rough times for RSPCA with nine dogs surrendered in a week

THE Friends of RSPCA Gladstone has had an influx of dogs, with nine dogs being surrendered in just one week.

But the organisation's president Judy Whicker says the problem will get worse before it gets better. 

 

"With people moving out of town, majority of them can't afford to keep their pets," Ms Whicker said. 

Last year Friends of RSPCA had re-homed around 670 cats and dogs.

They believe this year they will reach more than 700.

Ms Whicker said a large amount of the influx was because owners were not desexing their pets.

While more animals are coming into their care, they have been able to rehome most cats and dogs.
