Caring for all creatures great and small in Tasmania since 1872. Helping Animals, Enlightening People, Changing Lives
It is HOT out there – spare a thought for greyhounds due to race in Hobart tonight. Tasracing has put special measures in place to ensure dogs are not harmed & ORI will also be on site. Great to see a proactive response – but it's still too hot for these poor dogs to be racing.
We know that climate change means hot weather events will become more frequent in the future. The RSPCA supports the development of mandatory welfare standards for all racing codes which prescribe the cancellation of races above a specific temperature.
Harness trainer Ben Yole is under investigation for race fixing & animal cruelty. Yet he has moved 7 horses to his dad's name & they will have 8 out of 13 runners in one race on Sunday. Public concerns are ignored so why should taxpayers continue to fund this so-called 'sport'?
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
It is alleged that several cardboard boxes containing 33 kittens and cats were left outside a shed near Mulcahay Street in ZEEHAN on Tuesday 13 Feb. If you have any information, call 1300 139 947 or email email@example.com and quote job 62134.
Never a dull moment. Our Spreyton team is dealing with an unexpected influx of cats, kittens, ferrets, and guinea pigs at our animal care facility. Team members from our Latrobe ARC will be lending them a hand tomorrow - so our shop will be shut.
