RSPCA ‘needs vital support’

General manager of the RSPCA Charmaine Hatcher says the situation with the animal welfare organisation is “dire”, with expenses mounting while financial support is dwindling.

Speaking to the Sunday Sun, Hatcher shared the story of the situation at the Brandon’s, St Michael facility which has a staff of 22, including six veterinarians, carrying a burgeoning work load as more and more people in Barbados make use of the free services or take advantage of the low fees charged for some services.

“The funds are not there. I have been here for 46 years. In the past we had older generations who bequeathed things to us in their wills. That does not happen any longer.” (GC)
