PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING COVID-19

For the safety of our Animal Services staff and the public they serve, Cleburne Animal Services is implementing the following changes/procedures in order to minimize exposure to COVID-19:

The animal shelter is currently closed to the public. 

  • Cleburne Animal Services is still processing adoptions. 
    • Pets available for adoption can be seen here: https://www.cleburne.net/265/Adoptions. 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.
    • Appointments can be made by calling 817-556-8895, via email: acunit@cleburne.net, or via Facebook Messenger.
    • Lost pets impounded at the shelter can be seen here: https://www.cleburne.net/269/Lost-Pets
  • Animal Control Officers will be on duty for high priority calls and emergency calls due to limited staff available.
    • 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 acunit@cleburne.net.
  • Trapping and removal of wildlife/feral cats is suspended. Residents needing assistance with wildlife will need to contact a private wildlife removal company
  • 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 Mindy Henry at mindy.henry@cleburne.netto 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.
