Report Animal Cruelty

What We Do

Report Animal Cruelty

As a service to Geauga County residents, Rescue Village funds a Humane Law Department, through which court-appointed Humane Law Agents are on call 7 days a week. They respond to complaints about animal cruelty or neglect and act as emergency first responders for sick or injured stray animals.

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 protect custody for their safety and care, if necessary.

Report possible animal cruelty by contacting our Humane Agents at 440-338-4819 ext. 41 or using the form below.
