When reporting suspected animal abuse, you may remain anonymous. If you observe someone causing physical harm to an animal, or see an animal in distress, please contact us immediately. Try to obtain as much information as possible – such as dates and times, locations/addresses, names, animal descriptions, etc. Animal Control will investigate all suspected cases of animal cruelty and neglect with or without a named complainant.

If you are reporting animal cruelty after normal business hours or during a holiday please contact the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office at 941.639.2101 and they will contact our on-call officer.
