If your neighbor’s dog is left outside with no shelter, food, or water. . . if you see someone cause harm to an animal… if you just suspect an animal may be suffering from abuse or neglect . . . we want to know. Unlike most crime victims, animals can’t seek help themselves. They depend on YOU to stop their suffering. Moreover, if you don’t help them, who will?
It is understood that you respect your neighbor’s privacy and may not want to see his companion animal taken away. That’s why after you call our Humane Officers, they’ll first try to educate your neighbor about how to comply with the state and local animal care laws. They also realize that when you witness cruelty, you may be afraid to get involved. That’s why your report is kept confidential unless the case goes to court.
