  • Cleburne Animal Services is currently requiring appointments for all pet adoptions 
    • Pets available for adoption can be seen here: We are processing adoptions by appointment only. Please visit the link to view our current adoption process.
  • Owners wishing to reclaim pets must make an appointment.
  • Animal Control Officers are on duty between 9am and 5pm for regular calls for service and after hours for emergency calls only.
    • If you have an animal related emergency at any time, 24 hours a day, please call 817-645-0972.
    • What is an emergency/high priority call? 
      • Animal Bite Complaints
      • Loose aggressive animal or dangerous animal
        • This does not mean a loose dog that "looks mean". This means an animal that is displaying aggressive behavior:
          • Growling or showing teeth
          • Advancing, lunging, or charging while growling and/or barking with hackles raised
          • Chasing or attempting to bite
          • Raised hackles, tail tucked or "flagging" (not wagging!), ears back or alert
        • Do not attempt to pet, chase, catch, or run from an animal that is displaying these behaviors
        • Injured or sick stray animals
        • Cruelty/Neglect Complaints
        • Animals unattended in vehicles. (If you see an animal locked in a vehicle and in DISTRESS - call 911!)
  • Non-Emergency calls, requests for service, or incidents should still be reported to CAS. You can do so by calling 817-556-8895. Please leave a message if no one is available to answer your call. You can also email your concern to [email protected].
  • Our trap loan program is currently suspended due to lack of available equipment. We will still service owned traps. For guidelines and trapping rules, please click HERE
  • Barking dog and other nuisance complaints will be handled via telephone and email as much as possible. 
  • Non-Emergency owner surrenders are accepted on a case by case basis and by appointment only. Please email Landra Hale at [email protected] to discuss owner surrender needs and availability.
    • Pet owners that need to rehome their pet may consider using a third party service such as Rehome
    • Walk-In owner surrenders will not be accepted unless it is an emergency situation that requires immediate surrender.
    • Cleburne Animal Services does NOT accept owner surrenders or strays from outside the corporate city limits of Cleburne. For information on where to take an animal from outside the city, please click HERE
