How do I report a house that should be condemned with out giving my name

How do I report a house that should be condemned and people are living there. There are lots of cats and they pee in the the house and it smells so bad that when you pull in the drive way you can smell it before you go in. Someone that lives there has a trek and breathing problems and has had throat cancer. This environment is unhealthy and feel that the house should be condemn. No one should be living there.

You could check if your applicable departments take anonymous complaints - may or may not. (Use caller ID blocking when you call to ask). Several agencies to try - one might take anonymous complaints, and once they see the situation they should call in the rest of the agencies that are appropriate.

You could report it as an animal abuse issue to animal control.

You could contact local health department as a public health issue.

Another approach is to call your local child or elder protection agency, if that applies, and report it as a threat to the resident.

If you know a relative or caregiver for the person who has not been to the house for quite a while, you could contact them about it.

You could report a noxious smell coming from the house to the police, and tell them you are worried about the person inside and suggest a welfare check - though you cannot block your name and number from them.
