Yesterday I decided to tag along with our RSPCA ACT Inspectors for the afternoon. They investigated seven different complaints within a two-hour period and all but one was related to what we would call a ‘nuisance’ complaint – most frequently that of dogs barking.
RSPCA ACT Inspectors are seeking information from the public in relation to a female Australian Silky Terrier that was located with disturbing injuries in the Duffy area on 19/12/16.
Following a veterinary examination, RSPCA ACT is concerned about how these injuries occurred. If you have any knowledge about an incident involving this dog, please call Senior Inspector Catherine Croatto on 0407 078 221.
All information provided will be dealt with in a confidential manner.
