My pet has been abused by the perpetrator. Can the RSPCA prosecute them? If you have evidence of the abuse then we can support you in lodging a cruelty complaint to the RSPCA’s Cruelty Hotline. This will then be assigned to one of our Inspectors to investigate, like the many other reports they respond to daily. Evidence of cruelty (vet reports, video footage, external witnesses, etc.) is critical in order to successfully prosecute those who carry out acts of cruelty or neglect towards animals.
