Reporting Animal Cruelty Or Neglect

The Ontario SPCA has established a new, province-wide phone number for directly reporting cases of animal cruelty or neglect. The number is operational 24 hours a day and goes to a central dispatch centre.

Sarnia Humane Society OSPCA Agent Nicole King welcomes the news.

The phone number is (519)-310-7722.

The issue of animal cruelty came to light in Sarnia after a cat was shot 17 times in the head with a pellet gun earlier this year. Two young Sarnia men face charges in connection with the shooting.
