Do you have a report of cruelty you need our Inspectors to investigate?
If you suspect cruelty in the state of Victoria, please complete the form below. If your report is related to suspected cruelty in another state, please contact the RSPCA in the state where the alleged offence occurred.
What can RSPCA Inspectors investigate?
RSPCA Inspectors investigate complaints involving all kinds of animals, in all kinds of situations. Last year, our Inspectors investigated 8,509 cases of reported cruelty. The most common complaints are failure to provide adequate food, water, shelter and veterinary treatment. RSPCA Inspectors do not have the legal powers to help with stray, wandering or nuisance animals or noise complaints (eg. barking dogs). If your report relates to these issues, please contact your local council.
Are my details confidential?
To investigate a cruelty complaint, RSPCA Inspectors require reasonable grounds to suspect that an animal cruelty offence has been committed. It is essential that you provide contact details so our Inspectors can gather more information if needed such as further directions if the property or animal is difficult to locate. Any personal information provided remains strictly confidential and is protected by the Privacy Act 2000 and Privacy Act 1988.
