If you are contacting PETA to report that an animal is in danger, please submit our Report Cruelty to Animals form. If the animal is in imminent danger, please contact your local police department immediately. If your local police department is unresponsive, call PETA immediately—day or night—at 757-622-7382, option 2.
Subsequently, one may also ask, where do you report animal abuse?
Report Animal Cruelty. If you think someone you know is abusing animals, please speak up. The best thing you can do is report your suspicions of cruelty to your local law enforcement agency, humane organization, animal control agency or taxpayer-funded animal shelter.
Is it a felony to abuse animals?
Currently, 46 of the 50 states have enacted felony penalties for certain forms of animal abuse. However, in most jurisdictions, animal cruelty is most commonly charged as a misdemeanor offense.
