Animals cannot speak for themselves, so CrimeStoppers asks the public to be their voice and report anonymous tips on animal cruelty. Academic studies going back three decades show a clear link between cruelty to animals in childhood and violence against humans in adulthood. Other studies show that an abused pet – that may be noticed by a perceptive neighbor or a veterinary professional – often indicates hidden abuse of a spouse or a child taking place within the walls of the same home.
If you have any information about these crimes, or any person(s) involved, you are urged:
You do not have to give your name. CrimeStoppers Honolulu will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 if your tip leads to an arrest, identity of a suspect, or recovery of property, and you can remain anonymous.
