For abuse in progress, call 9-1-1. For ongoing abuse (dogs without shelter, food, water, tangled up, stranded, etc.) contact Rutherford County PAWS at 898-7740. Remember never to turn a blind eye to animal abuse. Statistics show that if animal abuse is present, it is likely that child abuse, spousal abuse, or elder abuse is present in the home as well.
