Animal protection

Poor treatment of animals or inadequate care can be reported to the animal protection service number.

Animal welfare in Helsinki is monitored by the Supervising Veterinarian.

They make animal inspections based on the reports and, when necessary, give advice in animal protection matters.

Municipal veterinarians are also responsible for monitoring pet shops and other permanent facilities where animals are kept, such as stables.
