Report Animal Cruelty

Each of us has the power to make a meaningful difference in the lives of neglected and abused animals. By reporting cases of suspected or known animal cruelty and neglect, you are offering defenceless animals protection and a second chance. You may also be helping other current and future victims.

Knowledge and your voice are two of the most powerful tools you can use to stop animal cruelty. By educating yourself about animal cruelty, including understanding common signs of abuse, animal cruelty laws, and ways you can protect your own pet, you can play a key role in the promotion of animal welfare and the prevention of animal cruelty.

All complaints of suspected or known animal cruelty and neglect should be reported to the NBSPCA hotline at 1-877-722-1522. This hotline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Help the investigating officer by providing as many details as possible, including a description of the animal involved, the type of cruelty witnessed, the date of the incident, where it took place, and who was involved. All information remains confidential, including the person who made the complaint.
