Reporting Cruelty

Step 1: Contact the SPCA by clicking below

Please note that our emails are not monitored after hours or over weekends.

Step 2: Take Photos

Take clear photos that provide as much information as possible.

Step 3: Do NOT Post to Social Media

By posting to social media, perpetrators may see your photo and then hide the evidence that would have assisted us in proving cruelty.

Step 4: Ensure your own Safety

Information about what type of photos to take.

Step 5: Stay close to your Phone

We may need to call you to follow up, so please save our number and stay near your phone.

By reporting cruelty, you help free them from suffering.

We depend on people like you to be our ‘eyes and ears’ in your community, but we can only act on cruelty if you let us know about it. All cruelty complaints are treated anonymously, and your details will remain confidential.
