The national RSPCA's 2016 budget was £143 million, or the equivalent of $190,777,015 in US dollars, serving a human population of 56 million in England and Wales.
Of this sum, the RSPCA re-homed all of 8,000 dogs.
Except that they didn't.
Those dogs were actually rehomed by the RSPCA's independent branches, which the national RSPCA does almost nothing to support, and which it actively undermines in the charity marketplace by siphoning off local money using aggressive direct mail and online marketing campaigns.
In fact, the national RSPCA spent over £22.3 million on fundraising in 2016, which is 365 percent more than they spent supporting all local branches that are actually rehoming dogs and cats on the ground.
In short, over 94 percent of all RSPCA income was going to something other than helping dogs and cats on the ground.
Most of that money was going to pay for people to dress up as fake law enforcement officers.
Despite their store-bought uniforms and badges, the RSPCA actually has NO police powers or special enforcement rights. The whole thing is a pantomime.
The RSPCA also spent large sums harassing no-kill animal charities that are in direct competition with them in the charities marketplace.
The RSPCA also spent large sums of money harassing farmers putting food on the table, as well as legal fox hunts.
The RSPCA also spent money on very expensive "hospitals and animal centers" that actually do not provide free care to pets, but instead take in injured wildlife that, for the most part, should have been put down quickly and cheaply.
In short, the supposed "work" of the national RSPCA is actually a complete lie, its management a complete shambles, and the whole thing is perched on a tower of fraud, misrepresentation, and inbred thinking.
