​​​​Animal Control > Report Animal Cruelty
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 do not hesitate to 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.
To report animal cruelty during normal business hours please contact our office at 941.833.5690, option 1.

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