Default RSPCA left a card at my house

Came home to a card saying I needed to ring the RSPCA urgently. I rang and the operator just took my details and said I'd have a call back off the inspector.
She was unaware of why the inspector called but said I'd be updated soon when I receive the phone call.

Anyone had any experience like this before? Just a bit worried about what will happen to be honest.

What type of thing will the inspector look for, what info should or shouldn't I give them?

Any help appreciated

Chris

Cheers for the reply. Eased my mind a lot.
I missed off the bosc and water dragon from the list but they're all setup as they should be.

Will keep you updated

Just remember a few things.

1) The Rspca is just a charity. They have no enforcement powers. They cannot enter your home uninvited, search your property or seize anything.

2) Do NOT sign anything over, you will never see it again.

If you have nothing to hide, then being open is the best way, and use it as a way to educate the employee who attends (I refuse to call them inspectors, as this is a name they have used themselves)

I wonder if someone has just found out that you're keeping snakes , freaked out and then phoned the RSPCA and told them a pack of lies just to unsettle you ... Or have you fallen out with anyone recently or upset a workmate or neighbour !?!

this is good RSPCA worker had no enforcement powers there may try make you think there have but do not to seize the need a vet to sing it saying it not in good health and then the police to seize it for them

Thanks for all the advice guys. I've made sure they're all clean and setup correctly so got nothing to hide.
