ANIMAL CRUELTY IN GEORGIA
Report neglect/abuse or unlicensed breeding of dogs in Georgia. For ANY county report ABUSE to 911!
Incidents of animal fighting or animal cruelty may go unreported because of a lack of understanding of what constitutes animal cruelty and the agency that should be notified when it is witnessed.
WHAT CONSTITUTES ABUSE?
This code book from DeKalb County is a great starting resource.
WHO DO YOU REPORT IT TO?
For Companion Animals (e.g., dogs, cats, exotic birds, pet rabbits, pot-bellied pigs): Report those persons holding an Animal Protection License issued by the Georgia Department of Agriculture (or those that should be licensed) to the Animal Protection Division at 404-656-4914, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Report all other persons to the local law enforcement agency and the animal control office, if one exists in the area. Report to the municipal or county police department or county sheriff’s department using the non-emergency number, unless the alleged perpetrator is actively involved in an act that threatens an animal’s life. If you suspect that other crimes (e.g., illegal drug activity or gambling) are involved, be sure to report this as a part of the call.
