Call 911 if you believe an animal’s life is in immediate danger.

If your community does not have an animal control department, call your local police or sheriff.

Reporting Animal Cruelty

There are two forms of animal cruelty. Passive cruelty or neglect is caused by lack of action, such as inadequate shelter, starvation, dehydration, and failure to seek needed veterinary care. Active cruelty is an intentional act to harm an animal. Without concerned citizens reporting cruelty in their neighborhoods, most instances of animal abuse would go unnoticed. There is also a strong link between animal cruelty and domestic violence and other serious crimes. Reporting animal cruelty may alert authorities to other crimes being committed. If you are aware of an animal being neglected or abused, please do not hesitate to report it.

Call your local Animal Control to report abuse or neglect occurring within city limits.
