Second Chance Animal Center works with children and adults to provide education focusing on responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of animals. Sadly, animal abuse and neglect continues to happen. To help animals being treated badly or cared for improperly, the community must speak for those unable to help themselves.
In the state of Vermont, there are laws in place to protect all animals. Title 13 outlines these important laws, and it’s best to understand what you are reporting to the proper authority.
Our shelter does not conduct investigations of reported cruelty, and the information below will help guide you to the appropriate reporting site and contact person. In many cases, if an Animal Control Officer or local police department is not listed, please contact the Vermont State Police directly.
