    If you ever comment on RSPCA shelters and charity pounds having high kill rates, the first response you'll likely get back is;
    "... yeah, but they don't ONLY do animal impoundment - they ALSO do animal cruelty legislation..."
    So let's look at that, shall we?
    Australia has a human population of more than 23 million. Despite our pretty small population, we gift the national RSPCA more than $141 million dollars a year. We have also gifted them nearly $240m in cash and assets.
    For our generous investment we get... drumroll... 104 inspectors.
    You read that right. 104 physical inspectors nationally.
    Servicing 23 million people.
    The average inspector's wage is $55k for a operational inspector, up to $85k for a senior inspector. Making the annual cost to hire inspectors nationally, between $5.2m and $8.8m.
    Or between 3% and 7% of the national RSPCA revenue.
    There is only two explanations for the discrepancy between the outgoing spend on inspectors vs revenue;
    - Either Australian's are actually pretty gosh-darn compassionate with very low rates of animal welfare transgressions; at which point the RSPCA needs much, much less money than we're giving them,
    OR
    - The RSPCA is desperately underfunding its inspectorate, meaning they're not doing the job we're paying them to do.
    But whatever the reason, we need to be asking, where is the rest of the money we're gifting them going, if not into safe shelters or well-resourced inspectorates?

    Watch it, their idea of a well resourced inspectorate is inspectors running around with guns, not even the police carry guns.
















    Only 11 inspectors in w.a four more have quit, obviously saw the writing on the wall.

    you may find these figures pretty enlighting re registered breeders and the real "backyard puppy farms " supplying the pounds... read recently in Victoria that RSPCA VIC had less than 1000 members yet our stupid politicians allow this rouge organisation to dictate law reform and do not give equal to greater input from Dogs Vic who has over 10,000 members? a rabid AR group is being given priority over the massive majority who actually have the animals.. what ever happened to democracy, now its minority rule? even worse a minority who a significant percentage believe no one should have animals
    be interesting to know how many members they actually have per branch Australia wide?
    These are the figures for all registered dog breeders state by state. http://ankc.org.au/media/6597/memberstats_to-16.pdf ..... thanks to the massive pressure mounted against traceable breeders on the charges by RSPCA that they need to be policed out of existence because they are filling their pounds with unwanted dogs, notice how much membership has fallen. Yet they breed only 71,361 puppies in 2016 , to supposedly oversupply Australia population with dogs. get real... no wonder its hard to find a registered purebred puppy to buy... .....Population of Australia (2017 and historical)
    Year Population Yearly % Change
    2016 24,309,330 1.42 %
    2015 23,968,973 1.58 %
    2010 22,162,863 1.8 %
    2005 20,274,282 1.19 %
    interesting, no figures available for RSPCA membership, neither state or Australia wide?
    In 2013 a survey by Galaxy Research for the Animal Health Alliance Publication
    “Pet Ownership in Australia Summary”
    estimated that the dog population was
    4.2 million.
    What is the Dog Population of Australia ?
    In 2010 research by BIS Shrapnel for the Australian Companion Animal Council
    Publication
    “The Contribution of the Pet Care Industry to the Australian
    Economy”
    estimated that the dog population was 3.6 million.
    In 2016 a Report by Newgate Research on behalf of Animal Medicines
    Australia ,
    “Pet Ownership Australia in 2016” *
    estimated that the dog
    population was 4.8 million.
    *This report outlines key findings from a quantitative study of Australian
    households and the state of pet ownership in 2016. It also draws on
    information from other sources locally and internationally to provide a
    comprehensive view of changes in pet ownership in Australia since 2013.
    Lets do the Math !
    Estimated Australian Dog Population 4.8 million
    A conservative estimate is that due to mortality 10% need to be replaced
    annually which indicates a demand for 480,000 puppies per year
    In 2016 ANKC Ltd Breeders registered 71,361 puppies, so to achieve the estimated number required, approximately 408,639
    were bred by people outside the ANKC who have no accountability
    for health or welfare

    As far as I know tax payers (state taxes) pay the RSPCA for their inspectorate. However the money they are given to basically enforce the law, (a state responsibility) does not cover their costs. I have no idea where their costs are, but I do know that it doesn't go on salaries. I've known several people who worked for the RSPCA, and they were all on pretty low wages and were told to be very careful with pending any RSPCA money.

    the real surprise is the "Assets" those millions listed are not referring to buildings, vehicles, or fittings, thats what they have invested in interest bearing stocks and shares
