For Advice And Reporting Cruelty In The UK
There are animal welfare charities you can contact in the UK where you can get advice about a situation, or you can report animal cruelty.
In England and Wales in the UK, if you suspect an animal is suffering, you can call the Royal Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). You can ask a question on their website and get an answer straight away.

If you are in Scotland in the UK, call the Scottish SPCA.

Both charities will send an inspector to visit the animal to check on them and they will not tell the owner who reported them. Like most animal welfare charities, they have a huge work load and limited funds, so repeatedly contacting them asking for updates may be necessary to make sure the cruelty is investigated.
