Animal cruelty encompasses behavior harmful to animals ranging from neglect to malicious killing. Most cruelty investigated by humane officers is unintentional neglect that can be resolved through education.

Intentional cruelty, or abuse, is knowingly depriving an animal of food, water, shelter or veterinary care or maliciously torturing, maiming, mutilating, or killing an animal.

Animal cruelty does not include barking dogs, loud cats or loose animals. If you have a problem with a loud animal, call your local law enforcement agency. If you see a loose or vicious animal, or an injured animal on the side of the road, call your local animal control.

If you see something, SAY SOMETHING!!! 

If you see suspected abuse, record the information and report it to the authorities. And repeat as much as possible. The number you need to call to report abuse, cruelty, or neglect in Fulton County is (518) 736-2100.

Intentional cruelty to animals is strongly correlated with other crimes, including violence against people.

According to HSUS, in one survey, 71 percent of domestic violence victims reported that their abuser also targeted pets. In one study of families under investigation for suspected child abuse, researchers found that pet abuse had occurred in 88 percent of the families under supervision for physical abuse of their children.
