JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Animal lovers, and just concerned citizens, are using the Internet as a way to find culprits behind animal abuse and neglect.

The website pet-abuse.com documents animal abuse cases across the nation, and when available, names those who are being charged in the abuse case. The website lists each case within a category that users can search through. Categories that are prominent in the Hinds County area of central Mississippi are Beating, Burning, Fighting, Neglect – Abandonment, Shooting and Theft.

Those worried about a particular animal within their neighborhood can log on to the website and visit the "Report Abuse" page for information on who to contact with your concern. Pet-abuse.com also links users to helpful pages from the ASPCA, HSUS and PETA to learn how to spot abuse and who to call to help save an animals' life.

Visitors to the site can also view the Interactive Animal Cruelty Maps to see where a case has been documented within their community. Each documented case of abuse also lists where the case stands. For example, for those cases where a person has not been charged, the title "ALLEGED" is written. Readers will also note statuses like "NOT CHARGED," "CONVICTED," or "OPEN."

The website also has a dedicated page to animal abuse prevention. The site lists simple steps on how you can help put an end to abuse, even if you're not in a position to own a pet, there are several ways you can help protect the defenseless animals.

The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
