A broke dog owner has criticized the RSPCA for not helping him with a vet bill.
Jonathan Drake had to turn to his sister for financial help after his three-legged dog broke a back leg.
Bures resident Mr Drake, 34, was made redundant from his scaffolding job two months ago.
He contacted the RSPCA, but said he was told there was “no one in his area who could help”.
Mr Drake said: “If Roo was four-legged, the operation would have been cheaper.
“The RSPCA were useless and to think my gran used to donate to them on a monthly basis. She would turn in her grave."
Mr Drake said the operation, which took place yesterday cost about £1,1000.
Perhaps Klare Kennett could tell us why the RSPCA HQ phone number couldn't have told Mr. Drake to ring the local branch and given him their phone number if that is where people in need of help with veterinary fees are supposed to go?Could it be that it is something that even the RSPCA help line doesn't know about? Shame on the RSPCA who regularly tell magistrates that if the defendant in a prosecution had only asked for help it would have been available.Will they tell magistrates the truth in future, I wonder?
