    Canine Cruelty Investigations

    We respond to and investigate over 1200 reports of canine cruelty and neglect each year. Ohio State laws regarding this issue are poorly written and quite antiquated. In most cases charges are not filed. Much effort is given, however, to educating and working with the owner to assist in the care and comfort of the pet. Please contact us at 898-4457 whenever you are concerned over the welfare of a dog. Every legal attempt will be made to insure the pet's well-being.
