Recognising the signs of animal abuse resource pack

"When animals are abused, people are at risk; when people are abused animals are at risk”

Help raise awareness

On average, every 30 seconds someone in England and Wales dials the RSPCA’s 24-hour cruelty line for help. 143,004 animal cruelty complaints were investigated in 2015 alone.

To raise awareness and help people understand the facts of animal abuse, we have created a free resource pack.

The Resource Pack includes:

  • A poster
  • An infographic
  • 5 Images to share on social media

We recently worked with The Links Group to create a free online course designed to help frontline staff spot animal abuse and understand the link between violence to people and violence to animals.

You can take the free online course by registering here.
