I am aware of an animal abuse, neglect, abandonment, or starvation situation inside McCurtain County. What steps do I need to take?


The first step is to contact the proper law enforcement department. If the animal is located inside city limits, contact the appropriate Police Department and if it is outside of city limits, contact the McCurtain County Sheriff's Department. Next, we ask that you contact ARK immediately with all pertinent information. We need the animal's location (driving directions if rural or the street address off of a mailbox or house), details of the problem, whether or not the animals are in a life threatening situation, length of time they have been in this condition, number of animals affected and descriptions of them, pictures if you can get some (highly recommended), whether or not the owner lives on site, owner's name if you know it, and whether you need to remain anonymous to outside sources or not. ARK can work with law enforcement without ever referring to you.  Your phone number is very helpful in case we need more information from you.
