SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The San Diego Humane Society and District Attorney’s office are teaming up to encourage people to report suspected animal cruelty.

According to the Humane Society, animal cruelty is one of the earliest and most dramatic indicators that someone may be developing a pattern of seeking power and control by abusing others.

The Humane Society says when animals in the home are abused or neglected, it is a warning sign that others in the home may be in danger.

“Often times when animals are being abused, people are being abused too,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, President and CEO of San Diego Humane Society.

“That’s why it’s so important to report animal cruelty and neglect when you see it.”

Anyone who wants to report animal cruelty is asked to call the Humane Society at 619-299-7012. All reports of suspected abuse or neglect can remain anonymous.
