Animal welfare: reporting cruelty, abuse or neglect


Staff are reminded that if, while attending incidents, they are concerned for the welfare of any animals, they have a dedicated RSPCA number for reporting it.

If you believe transporting a patient to hospital will raise animal welfare issues, or you think that animals are being abused or neglected, you can dial 0300 123 8024.   Calls can be taken anonymously. 

This a dedicated number for emergency services and not to be given to the public. Using this number will connect you directly to a call handler and not have to go through the pushbutton options.

The number for members of the public is 0300 1234 999.
