Find Answers To Your Questions
Welcome! This is where you can find answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ).
Below are the most frequently asked questions. You may also find it helpful to go to the site map, as an easy way to find information you are looking for. Even easier is to use the search function the site has.
Q1). If you have seen animals / an animal that you think is being neglected / abused / kept in bad conditions / treated cruelly – what should you do?
A. In a case like this, the best thing to do is get the address of where the animal in question is, then find out which animal welfare/rights/rescue organisations cover that area, by searching on a search engine (preferably a charity search engine)
IF THERE IS NO DANGER POSED TO YOU by taking photographs / video as evidence, also do this.
Contact the local animal charity or organisation covering the area, with the information you have. Keep contacting them for updates, and to make sure they have been out to see the animal. If you can, keep an eye on the animal yourself, to check their health is not deteriorating. If you feel the organisation you contacted is not interested, contact animal rights organisations in your area.
Q2). I am doing a school/college project/paper about animal cruelty, and how to help stop it. Can you help?

Q3). What is the best thing to do if I see animal cruelty being promoted online, such as in the form of pictures or videos?
A: It is best not to ask the website to take down the evidence, as then it is lost and nobody can be held responsible without evidence. Instead, it is best to follow the instructions on this page.
