ANIMAL ABUSE

NB Crime Stoppers and the New Brunswick Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) are seeking assistance from the public in identifying person(s) who are abusing animals. Animal protection officers of the SPCA are appointed peace officers to enforce the SPCA Act in our Province. This Act establishes the minimum standards of care for animals in New Brunswick.  Last year, animal protection officers investigated approximately 1,500 reports of cruelty and neglect involving more than 4,000 animals. These cases dealt with violence against animals, operation of puppy mills and the failure to provide basic food, water and shelter. People who commit these acts can be charged under the SPCA Act or the Criminal Code of Canada and can be banned from owning animals for life.

If you have any information concerning these criminal acts, please contact Crime Stoppers.  You are completely anonymous so you will never be asked to make a statement or appear in court. Your information could provide to you a cash award.
