Deliberate or Not, Animal Cruelty is NEVER Acceptable!

Animal cruelty includes abandonment of a pet, physical abuse, failure to provide food, water, shelter or veterinary care, fighting of animals, putting animals in a situation that causes distress (i.e. a hot car) or keeping an animal in unsanitary conditions.

Animal cruelty can be either deliberate abuse or simply the failure to take care of an animal. Either way, and whether the animal is a pet, a farm animal, or wildlife, the victim can suffer terribly.

If you witness or suspect animal cruelty, abuse or neglect, you should contact animal control immediately. Call 911 if you are witnessing cruelty at the moment. 

Purrfect Pals does not provide animal control services and we are unable to intervene legally in situations where cruelty or neglect are suspected. Below are links for animal control agencies and local and online cruelty investigation and prevention resources.
