RSPCA chief executive Tim Vasudeva told 891 ABC Adelaide there had been a quantity of attempts to break into the shelter at Lonsdale, one particular of them profitable.
“Somebody was successful in retrieving a dog which had been seized by council,” he stated.

“The RAA did not charge us for the installation, and the system itself was actually paid for by a type donor, who’s a lovely lady who’s been supporting us for a whilst,” he said.
