Where do I report animal neglect?

I'm having trouble tracking down exactly who to call to report my neighbors who are neglecting their two dogs. I'm in Montgomery, IL, and while I can find humane societies in the area I haven't found one yet that covers us specifically. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place, can anyone point me in the right direction? These two poor dogs are kept locked up in the garage all the time, all year long, and I don't think they're fed enough because one appears to have chewed a hole in its side. The other one is long haired and not brushed, so it has mats in its fur that are hampering its movement, although since they aren't let out of the garage more than about once a month I don't think they get much movement anyway.

That's so sad. You can call your local police. They can then contact the right person probably in your county's Animal Control department.

I agree, start with your local sheriff, and they will know the right contacts. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to find someone who cares.........which is sad! I hope you find the help you need.
