The Animal Justice Party has condemned the apparently ‘appalling’ conditions at the Singleton pound, where some dogs are allegedly going without a bed and blanket throughout the winter nights.
The party are making a formal complaint to the RSPCA and are demanding council undertakes the necessary steps immediately, to ensure animals at the pound aren’t being neglected.
Hunter Spokesperson for the Animal Justice Party Josh Agland says it’s not good enough for the animals.
“As you can see they’re failing in the most basic of standards which is the codes of practice and they’re basically failing under very specific sections which come under and cover exposure to elements and they also temperatures and bedding.”
He also says rescue groups should be given the opportunity to lend a hand.
