Report Animal Cruelty
In the state of Vermont, there are laws in place to protect all animals. Title 13 outlines these important laws, and it’s best to understand what you are reporting to the proper authority.
Our shelter does not conduct investigations of reported cruelty, and the information on this page will help guide you to the appropriate reporting site or contact person. In many cases, if an Animal Control Officer or local police department is not listed, please contact the Vermont State Police directly at (802) 524-5993.
