Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals
2001

A statewide investigation of the Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals revealed widespread abuse and malfeasance at the hands of numerous individuals responsible for animal welfare in New Jersey.  The Commission found that SPCAs at both the state and county levels have been subverted to the point where, in many instances, they are incapable of fulfilling their primary mission the effective and reliable enforcement of animal-cruelty laws.  The investigation resulted in a number of criminal prosecutions at the state and county levels.  Also, in addition to calling for a new framework through which the anit-cruelty laws could be effectively administered, the Commission recommended a series of reforms aimed at improving and strengthening animal-welfare operations throughout New Jersey.
