"If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals." --Albert Einstein
To report animal abuse, contact your local law enforcement agency. When the authorities need assistance, they will call us.
If you suspect abuse but are uncertain whether an animal is being
abused, contact the authorities. If something looks or feels wrong, it
may well be. If you think you've witnessed abuse or neglect, do not
wait - contact the authorities.
Here are signs and symptoms we see in many of the cases we investigate:
Flea/tick infestation. This is not just an annoyance, it is a serious health condition that can lead to illness and death.
Patches of missing fur or "mangey" appearance.
Wounds, sores, limping, and injuries, particularly if these are recurring and/or untreated.
Animals who have been struck by vehicles - or who are showing any of
the signs above - and have not been taken to a veterinarian.
Animals who appear excessively thin, underweight, or malnourished.
Animals who are kept inappropriately or excessively caged, without opportunity for exercise.
Animals who are covered in their own urine or fecal matter, or locked in unclean cages.
Animals who are repeatedly left alone without food or water, often chained up in a yard.
Animals who are kept outside without shelter in extreme weather conditions.
Any owner striking or otherwise physically abusing an animal.
