Animal Cruelty

If you suspect that an animal is being neglected or abused, please contact your local animal control agency. Animal control agencies have law enforcement powers and can investigate and enforce animal cruelty or abuse cases. Information provided to your local animal control agency is confidential. While we support efforts to prevent cruelty to animals, Seattle Humane is not authorized to investigate animal cruelty cases by state law. A list of local animal control agencies can be found below.

When it comes to animal welfare, your voice is needed! If you witness or suspect abuse or neglect, get as much information as possible. This includes the condition of the animal and whether the animal is being provided with proper shelter, water, and other necessities, as well as the exact location and description of the animal. However, even if you can’t obtain this information and you suspect abuse or neglect, you should still file a report.

Well Hello There!

We adopted brother and sister cats who love to play, explore, and be loved. They're also great with our grandchildren and have brought a lot of fun to our household.
