Cruelty Investigation

PrintInvestigation of cruelty to animals is our most important role. Inspectors and Agents of the Society have full police powers to investigate reported incidents of abuse and neglect. Last year, approximately 80% of the complaints were resolved through educating the pet owner. Cruelty to animals is a criminal offence.

The law states that provision of suitable and adequate food, water, care and shelter for your pet are essential. If a person is found guilty of Cruelty to Animals that person may be subject to a fine and/or imprisonment as well as being prohibited from owning animals. Rescue a mistreated animal by reporting all cases of abuse or neglect.
