What to Do?

If you witness suspected cruelty to animals, call your local Animal Control as soon as possible. In Muscogee County, Columbus Animal Care and Control (CACC) is your contact. Be sure to document the case as well as you can with dates, times, specific details and, if possible, footage and photographs from a cell phone. All of these things can help appropriate agencies during any investigation they may do of the suspected cruelty.


Dispatch hours at CACC are Monday – Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and their number is 706-653-4512. If you are making a report after these hours or on the weekends, dial 911 to request an Animal Control Officer. If you make a report of alleged animal cruelty, the responding agency is required to investigate.
