Animal abuse phone line

The Quebec government has set up hotline for tips about animals facing abuse.

Calls can be made day or night, about farm animals or pets. All tips will be dealt with confidentially.

The number is 1-844 ANIMAUX.

The province is also reminding people who are moving this week that they should not abandon their pets but instead place them with willing acquaintances or take them to a shelter for adoption.

    It's about time. Shows government is serious about this horrible cruelty. Let's hope it doesn't just stop here.

      @jonico Great idea, but then what? Will they take the time to investigate? Will charges be laid against abusive and neglectful owners?? We need some sort of consequence or it will be a total waste of time, money and effort!
