Bad Rescue Centres

Post by Wendy on Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:53 pm

Hayley's Bakers topic reminded me of something I heard recently. I'm in a sort of 'Armchair Detective' forum and one topic got around to the subject of dogs and rescue centres. One poster said that the rescue centre near her was operating as a backyard breeder. She said that it was a big house set in private grounds and was taking in dogs supposedly for rescue - breeding them wherever possible and selling the pups! She said she had complained about them to the local authorities and that the people concerned had sent heavies around to her business to warn her off!

When you think about it, it could be quite lucrative for unscrupulous types. The public pay to have a dog left there, pay to take one home, pay charitable donations to the place, and work there unpaid as volunteers. And that is without the place breeding puppies!

Like everything else - when you get a dog you have to do your research first! But I suppose you tend to think that a 'rescue centre' is a good place. sad

It's a minefield, certainly.

But I can't help thinking - isn't a "rescue" a "rescue", even if the place the dog comes from is the very pit of hell?

Yes, for the individual dog, but why should they be allowed to get away with that sort of thing?

And surely, if they're running a byb business, they're actually making the rescue situation worse?

I know a few places like this, mostly horse related. It breaks my heart.

I agree with you absolutely in that puppy farmers and those masquerading as rescue centres whilst perpetuating the problem should not be allowed to get away with it and we can only hope that those agencies who have the power to do so can close these places down, take the dogs into care and then the dogs can be rescued into permanent homes.

Problem is there are not authorities that have the power. They are not breaking the law, and as long as these places aer seen to at least be "trying" to improve noone can touch them.

I agree. I personally think all breeding should be illegal and only allowed by permitted persons. I would be very eager to put in paper work and be inspected before i bred. I'm already going above and beyond what most full time breeders do lol

Either do it right or do not do it - that goes for everything in life.
