When complaining, make the first contact with the trader yourself, and preferably by letter with proof of delivery. If that does not work and you are in the UK, Citizens’ Advice Consumer Helpline can help. Outside the UK, contact the UK European Consumer Centre.

 

A police officer or local authority officer can complain to the local magistrates' court, if they feel that animals have been treated cruelly.
