Cruelty & Neglect

Animal cruelty and neglect occur in many forms

Often these situations may be remedied with a simple reminder that pets need to have access to warm, dry shelter during unpredictable, and often inclement weather.

In other situations, animal cruelty may be more dramatic, such as a dog tangled in its chain, an animal being left in a car on a hot day, a pet being beaten or a dog forced to fight other animals.

Reporting a problem

If you have any questions or concerns about a pet’s health or living conditions, please contact Bothell Police Animal Control at 425-486-1254.

A witness statement may be required to prosecute the offender.
