How to Report Abuse


Animals may be saved if someone quickly calls the authorities. If you ever see anyone bullying ANY animal, say something! If an animal is in danger, contact your local animal control agency or the police immediately, and if they’re unresponsive, then contact PETA. To help sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife, check out our GUIDE to handling an animal emergency, and to help wildlife every day, see our list of easy ways to HELP WILDLIFE.


What to do if you see an animal trapped in a hot car

OneGreenPlant.org reference: Tips to help

You’ve found a litter of kittens outside. Now what?

Tips by Alley Cat Allies:

This week-by-week guide will assist you if you find yourself caring for kittens who are newborn to 10 weeks old. It will help you determine how old the kittens are, based on their physical characteristics and behavior, and how to care for them so they’ll be healthy and adoptable!

Before you do anything, remember—never separate kittens from their mother. If you don’t see her, monitor the kittens from a distance for a few hours. If their mother returns, leave the kittens with her. If she doesn’t, take the kittens inside. Read more at:
