Report Animal Cruelty / Animal in Distress

It’s not cool to be cruel. Being mean to animals, hurting them or not meeting their needs is cruelty.  Reporting cruelty is the kind thing to do. You are helping the animal and you may also be keeping children and adults safe. When animals are being hurt, often other people are getting hurt too.

Even if you think someone else has reported, PLEASE MAKE THE CALL!  The more reports there are, the more likely something will be done.  If you can, please provide your name and contact information.  If you can’t, reporting anonymously is better than not reporting at all.


To report an animal in distress—including wildlife—please call the toll free Animal Cruelty Reporting Hotline at:
