The SPCA allowed one puppy to be adopted twice at the same time.
We went to the SPCA to adopt a dog. We picked out a puppy that we were told was available to be adopted. Our home was inspected and approved. Our other dog successfully met the puppy in the 'get to know each other' area. The puppy was spayed, dewormed and chipped. We fetched the puppy and the puppy came to stay with us on what we thaught was to be a permanent basis. However, yesterday morning someone from the SPCA called us and told us they had given us a puppy that someone else had already adopted and that we had to return it.
In my opinion this speaks to either a criminal level of inneptitude or a very cruel sense of humour if you can even call it that. The puppy was not switched for a slightly different puppy at any point in the proceedings, they litterally allowed it to be adopted twice. Puppies are living things and in my opinion this was like letting someone adopt a child and then telling them that they were actually not up for adoption after sending the child home with them.
Either way, the SPCA Randburg will not be getting my or anyone else in my family's business again. The entire situation made us very unhappy. We are very dissapointed in the SPCA.
