    Default Would you report to RSPCA....

    Sometimes I think I judge people too harshly when it comes to animals as I am a massive animal lover and all my pets are very spoilt!

    So I have already reported these people for a previous dog because they - kicked the dog at the top of the stairs and it tumbled down. This was when it was a puppy and not chained up.
    - then when it was older it was chained up all day and barked NON STOP the owner (who not to sound judge is very bogan and not very nice) screamed at it multiple times a day to "shut the f up"
    - Chained up 24/7

    I reported to RSPCA and whether it got taken or they gave it away I don't know. Shortly after it was replaced with another puppy, which is now grown up and the dog I am worried about. It is never off the chain. It does have a dog house and I don't know about food or water as I don't know them personally.

    Is having a dog chained up 24/7 something to report, or am I just overly emotional when it comes to these things and should butt my nose out?

    Report. That's no life for an animal. Quite plainly it's abuse.

    I would report it and let the RSPCA figure it out. They really know what they're doing.

    Poor puppy Makes me so sad.

    Thanks guys, it makes me so sad too but my family think it's none of my business and to just leave it (they don't like that it's chained up either but they don't have to see the poor thing lying on the grass all day doing nothing)

    Cruelty is everyone's business.

    Report it. Too many people their heads in the sand so to speak when it comes to any type of abuse.

    I would report, based on their previous abuse, and the fact that it's chained up all the time.

    I would definitely report it. They sound like horrible people if they think it's okay to leave a dog chained up all day (and given their previous history of mistreating their pet).

    Yep I agree the poor thing, report it & then it's up to the RSPCA to decide if it's abuse or not. Poor animals don't have a voice & at least this way you will have peace of mind either way. There's a lot of people out there that shouldn't be allowed to have animals. If they have previous history with them, you might find they may come straight out which would be good.
