Animal Abuse

LOUISIANA ANIMAL CONTROL ADVISORY TASK FORCE – LACATF is dedicated to serving the animals and citizens of Louisiana by ensuring the humane treatment and well being of animals. Our work is focused on improving animal control agencies and shelters, preventing cruelty, assisting with law enforcement, promoting education, formulating solutions to address pet overpopulation, and supporting animal control agencies in their efforts to build strong relationships with the communities they serve.

See Something Send Something – One way to report animal cruelty or abuse is to use an app referred to as My Mobile Witness. This is part of Homeland Security’s See Something Send Something program that allows witnesses to send photos or videos of criminal activity instantly to law enforcement agencies within the state. Download the app from the above link.

Internet Abuse – Immediately contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center, at The website will direct you to the page where you can file your complaint. At first glance, it may appear that the website will only consider complaints of Internet monetary fraud. However, IC3 is the proper venue for all Internet crimes, including animal abuse.  (courtesy of American Humane)
