    Q36: I am concerned that a neighbour is being cruel to his dog, what can I do?

    If you witness cruelty to an animal then contact the RSPCA's 24 hour a day cruelty line on 0300 1234 999. It is important to have ready the following details: a description of the animal(s) involved, the exact location of the animal(s), the names and addresses of any other witnesses, the registration number of any vehicle involved, and the name and address of the suspect(s) if known.

    The police also have powers to deal with cruelty to animals but the RSPCA are the experts in the field and are better equipped to deal with it.
