Report Animal Cruelty

     Jan. 2010:       Jan. 2011:  
If you witness animal cruelty, please report it to law enforcement immediately!


Animal cruelty is an unspeakable crime. If you see it, report it! The animals are counting on you to protect them.


If you WITNESS animal cruelty, report it to your local law enforcement immediately! Some citizens have found that they have to make multiple calls to get action. Others have reported they also contact city district attorney's office and county commissioners offices to help get action.

Please remember that law enforcement cannot build a case on "he said, she said" so it is important to document animal cruelty with time, date, location, other details, and if possible to get photos (safely, without tresspassing).

In a case where a family member is abusing animals, you can report the cruelty as an anonymous tip.

Studies indicate that those who commit cruelty against animals will typically also abuse children, women, the elderly and family members.

If you SUSPECT animal cruelty, it is best to check with your local law enforcement to determine the best way to proceed.

Hoarding is not only a mental illness, it is also a form of animal cruelty. Please report Hoarding to your local law enforcement.
