Animal Cruelty

It’s your responsibility to report animal cruelty of any kind

If you see it or know of it happening, regardless of whether the animal is a pet, stray, or wild animal, you must do your part. This includes animals being abandoned, tortured, killed, beaten, etc. It does not matter if the animal is a pet, wild or stray animal–it is still illegal.
