When is 9-1-1 the appropriate agency to call for animal/pet emergencies?
- If your animal/pet’s emergency is due to a crime being committed. For instance, your neighbor shot your pet/animal within the last 15 minutes or your neighbor is still actively endangering you or your pet. If this is not the case, then call the animal agency that handles your area to make a report during their regular business hours. (See phone list for numbers for Spokanimal and SCRAPS).
- The animal/pet endangers the public. Such as a dog on the freeway that continues to be a traffic hazard.
- The animal/pet continues to endanger itself. Such as a horse with a broken leg loose on a roadway.

If the injury/illness isn’t due to circumstances like those listed above, please contact a vet or rescue shelter. After hours, or a day your vet isn’t open - you will need to contact a Pet Emergency clinic to get help for your animal/pet.
