Report Animal Cruelty
Get Help, Day or Night
As a service to Geauga County residents, Rescue Village funds a Humane Law Department. Our agents respond to complaints about animal cruelty or neglect and act as emergency first responders for sick or injured animals. Our humane agents are on call 7 days a week but NOT 24 hours a day. If you have an emergency situation that occurs after working hours, please contact the Geauga County Sheriff Department at (440) 564-7131
The agent’s role includes educating county residents regarding the humane treatment of animals, investigating suspected animal cruelty cases, and aiding in the prosecution of suspected animal abusers in accordance with Ohio law, placing animals into protective custody for their safety and care, if necessary.
