Govt reconsiders RSPCA funding after review findings handed to authorities

The fate of future taxpayer funding for Tasmania's trouble-plagued RSPCA is yet to be decided.

A parliamentary inquiry has recommended the animal welfare organisation restructure before it receives any future government funding after finding its management processes are dysfunction and unsatisfactory.

The Premier Lara Giddings says the Government is looking at the report.

"And look at the recommendations and give a response to that in due course," he said.

The RSPCA receives about $600,000 a year in taxpayer funding and is contracted by the Primary Industries Department to inspect allegations of animal cruelty.

The inquiry's chairman Ivan Dean says the RSPCA should continue that work if it fixes its management problems.

"The RSPCA have the facilities that are necessary," he said.

The RSPCA's board says it will respond to the report as soon as possible.
