THE Choose Respect initiative has shown it not only extends to people and property but to animals as well.
RSPCA WA has thrown its support behind the initiative to encourage people to have a more caring and responsible behaviour towards animals.
“I was alarmed to hear that during one year the RSPCA WA investigates almost 4000 cases of cruelty against animals on our state alone,” Choose Respect facilitator Taryn Barrett said.
The South West RSPCA inspector vehicle now has the Choose Respect sticker in support of the cause.
RSPCA volunteer Michelle Holzknecht said the RSPCA could also discuss the Choose Respect initiative when the staff visits schools.
“The responsibility of having pets falls in line with Choose Respect with de-sexing, vaccinations and general care,” she said.
