Report Abuse & Neglect
Each day HHT receives complaints of equine abuse and neglect within our state. Hundreds of miles are logged checking out these complaints, and doing what we can with the resources we have. We are not "Animal Cops" and getting the animals in need help, isn't always easy. It takes everyone willing to get involved sometimes to help a horse in need. We encourage people to help us give a voice to these magnificent creatures that can not speak for themselves. Step up, call your local officials and let them know you expect your county to take a stand against animal abuse. Be willing to take that extra step, and be willing to testify if you feel you have information that would help an animal. Let them know HHT is here to offer support within their county and all they need to do is contact us.
To file a complaint with HHT,
look for your county below and click on the button and fill out
the form that will help us with necessary information to begin
helping animals in need.
Because HHT is located in Knox County we are limited to the areas we can provide investigating agents for when complaints are filed. All counties in "RED" are counties we have built an affiliation with and can work very closely with them regarding equine issues. The other counties we have not been able to work into a working relationship with either due to lack of concern from county officials or because we haven't yet had the opportunity to meet with them with our "Hoof Beats Across Tennessee Campaign".
In counties not marked in "RED" please voice your concerns to the local sheriffs department and let them know that HHT is available to assist in anything they may need from training to transport and housing. Still file your complaint through us so we'll have a record for later reference, also if you do not get any county help we will see what we can do from our end to help rattle a few cages, so to speak.
