Q: How do I report animal cruelty?
If you witness animal abuse, please contact Animal Control at 671-300-7964/5/6/7 and your local mayor or Guam Police Department, according to Guam Animals in Need.
If you cannot contact them, you can report the abuse to GAIN, and GAIN will forward the report to Animal Control and/or the Guam Police Department. Not. This is because it must be done by an appropriate legal authority.
Evidence such as photographs and video can help increase the accuracy of your report, but if obtaining the evidence would cause an animal or person to be endangered, do not attempt to capture it.
