Without phone calls from concerned members of the public who report cruelty in their area, we wouldn’t know about most instances of animal cruelty and neglect. It all comes from the public, it all starts with YOU—that’s why it’s so important that if you are concerned or worried that you contact us. Without information from the public, many animals would remain in abusive circumstances, mute and unable to defend themselves.
Know Who to Call to Report Animal Cruelty
Please call the DSPCA at 01 4994700 or ring the local Garda Station or local SPCA.
Provide As Much Information as Possible When Reporting Animal Cruelty
The details that you provide can go a long way toward assisting the Inspector. It helps to write down as many details as possible. For example: the type of cruelty that you have seen; where this cruelty took place and who was involved, etc.
