Animal Cruelty and Re-homing: Are your Donations Being Spent Correctly?

Animal Cruelty and Re-homing: Are your Donations Being Spent Correctly?

By Ross (The Hammer) Hemsworth

You may have read in the news recently, the story of nature lover David Brown bequeathing his wildlife haven to the RSPCA in his will, a charity he trusted to maintain and look after it. However, after his death, the RSPCA repaid his trust by selling the land to property developers, and to the horror of his former neighbours, the habitat was flattened " in just 12 hours.

In this week`s programme, The Hammer chats to people about their experiences with this organisation, and ask are they REALLY `preventing cruelty to animals`?  We also ask if too many `rescued` animals seem to end up on `death row` so soon, and whether your donations are being channelled into the correct areas.

Hammer also looks at the work of many smaller animal rescue organisations and asks if it is better to donate to these more local establishments, and name them in your will. The programme also explores the legal wording of a will which may dictate how a property or funds may be used by such an organisation dealing with your bequest.

**This programme contains information about the euthanasia of pets and animals by a shot bolt system that some listeners may find disturbing.

The Hammer chats with Critic Chris Snowdon About Smoking, The Government and Media Statistics - Should people have the right to weigh up the health issues and make a free-will decision on whether or not to smoke, or is this another case of the `nanny-state` telling us all what to do?
