Why is Reporting Animal Cruelty Important?

Some people do not want to report animal cruelty because they do not realize that the action is a crime or they are afraid to report cruelty committed by a friend or neighbor. However, reports often can be made anonymously.
Here are just a few reasons why reporting animal cruelty is important:
  • To help an animal at risk
  • To alert law enforcement agencies to crimes that may otherwise go uninvestigated
  • To document a pattern of behavior for repeat offenders
  • To prevent future violence to animals and to people.
Studies have shown strong links between animal cruelty and domestic violence, child abuse and violent crimes.
