Resources for Reporting

We all know that The Anti-Cruelty Society is a great place to help homeless animals find their forever homes, but did you know that we do so much more than that? Our website is more than just a pretty face, too. It is a resource where we display loads of opportunities and services for our friends and furiends, alike!

If you take a couple of minutes to check it out, you can find all sorts of neat stuff, like an online scheduler for our Spay/Neuter Clinic, pet health articles, and pet behavior support. You can also find a list of programs and services offered by the society.

One of the services listed is humane investigation, where our trained staff respond to phone calls from people reporting potential abuse and neglect in their communities. For more info about this life-saving service, and to learn about how or what to report, check out http://bit.ly/1FLnHhp.

Sometimes, there are cases of abuse that we are unable to investigate. If you ever witness abuse in progress, that’s a crime! Be sure to call 911 to report it. You can also use the police anonymous Text2Tip number by sending a text/SMS message with “CPD [your crime tip]” to CRIMES (274637). More on that here: http://bit.ly/1FU9Esp.

If you ever see a video or image online with content that displays animal abuse, be sure to contact the website host ASAP, and notify them about it. When doing so, include the link or URL to the site, and a screen-shot of the page. Feel free to remind them that animal abuse is illegal! I know I would. Just thinking about it makes my whiskers curl…Rawr!

Remember, we all want to do our part to make our communities safe, and part of that means knowing what actions to take, and who to talk to.

That’s all I have for you today!
