What to do if you see an animal in need
At Eurogroup for Animals we get calls every week from members of the public in Belgium (and sometimes beyond) who either have seen an animal being mistreated or have found one that is injured.
As we do not have any on the ground operations and do not have any connection to a shelter or rescue centre, here is what we advise. We have included contacts for Belgium - the same principles will apply for other countries.
In cases of mistreatment or neglect contact the police or the animal welfare service of your region/country:
Toll-free number 1718
Toll free number 1700
For an injured bird or wild animal contact:
Brussels: Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux
Flanders: Vogel Opvang Centrum VOC Malderen
For companion animals contact:
