If an animal's life is in immediate danger, our Inpsectors may not be able to act in time, particulalry in regional areas—call the police.
But we can't help if you don't tell us—we receive over 3,000 animal cruelty complaints from concerned members of the public each year in Western Australia.
Even if you’re not sure, contact us so we can investigate.
Your action could save an animal’s life.
However, they can only act if you provide this basic information:

Once you have made a cruelty complaint, our communications officer will follow it up,
and where necessary, it will be investigated by an Inspector.
RSPCA's inspectors have the power to seize any animal they believe is suffering.
If necessary, our vets will check the animal, and they will be cared for by RSPCA staff and volunteers.
In cases of extreme cruelty or neglect, we may consider legal action.
