While Pet-Abuse.Com will always attempt to help you determine the best course of action if you have witnessed animal cruelty, we do ask that you take the following steps before contacting us regarding these cases:
- Read the section on Documentation
- Try to locate the appropriate humane law enforcement department for your area. Please see our Reporting Abuse page for more details.
- Contact the law enforcement agency in your area*. If they have not responded within a few days, contact them again. Keep trying until they investigate the situation.
If your local law enforcement agency is unwilling to investigate the case, contact your local media. Communities often respond strongly to cases of animal abuse, and sometimes a little media pressure can go a long way.
If you still require assistance, please feel free to contact us.
