We employ a trained Humane Police Officer, Eric Duckett, to thoroughly investigate and, if possible prosecute, offenders to the fullest extent of the law regarding any crime committed against animals. 

To report a case of animal cruelty, a concern for the well being of an animal, or a neglect concern contact our cruelty hotline directly at (814) 572-5913 (call or text). Complainants will need to provide: Your name, exact address of location of complaint, nature of complaint, name of owners if possible, duration of violation. All complainant information is kept strictly confidential.  

You can also email eric@theannashelter.com.

Please note, your call is important to us. However, we may be unable to respond within a matter of hours. If you have an urgent complaint and are unable to reach the cruelty officer, please contact the shelter directly at (814) 451-0230 or your local police department.
