Suspected neglected dog

Hi all,

Does anybody know where we can get help or file a report if we are worried that a dog is being neglected?

Thank you!

Re: Suspected neglected dog

Jrspet has given you excellent advise.

The only thing I would add:

Are the owners approachable? Is the situation such that you could safely (your own safety, and that of the poor dog's) try to speak to them? Do you suspect willful abuse, or is it a case neglect by a clueless owner?

If you think you could safely approach the owners, this is often the best route to quickly get the dog into a better situation. In the case of neglect by clueless owners - or possibly even a misunderstanding - sometimes a quiet word works wonders to either change their behavior, or to convince them to sign the dog over to someone more capable of properly caring for him. BUT - you need to judge the situation carefully.

If you have witnessed willful abuse, if you believe that th dog is in need of veterinary attention, if you believe the dog is being denied food or water, get the authorities involved asap.

Kudos to you for caring, and trying to help.
