North Country Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Essex County, New York
TO REPORT ANIMAL ABUSE OR CRUELTY:
If you are concerned about the condition, treatment or abandonment of an animal in your area, please call one of the local authorities listed below. For general questions about what constitutes animal cruelty, call our shelter staff. It is not your responsibility to investigate or prove abuse has occurred. Giving your name can be helpful but an anonymous call is better than none at all. Do not be afraid to report your suspicions for fear that you might be wrong. Remember, animals have no way of reporting what is being done to them—they rely on us to defend them.
