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. 

  • 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
    • 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.
  • Animal Control Officers will be on duty for priority calls only and we have limited staff available.
    • If you have an animal related emergency at any time, 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 surrender is accepted on a case by case basis and an appointment must be made.

Introducing our Pet of the Week...

Meet Billy BobBilly Bob

This handsome, well behaved boy is a ~2 - 3 year old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. Billy Bob is a big boy at about 75lbs but he is quiet, house-trained, calm, and gets along well with other dogs. If you are looking for a large, lovable companion then he is the one for you!

Submit your application to make an appointment to meet this wonderful dog!

Adoption fee is WAIVED and includes spay or neuter, all vaccinations, microchip, 30 days of flea/tick, 30 days of heartworm prevention, and 30 days of pet health insurance. All pets at CAS require an adoption application. Find more information about our adoption process and fill out an application HERE.



Effective November 2nd, 2019 - Saturday shelter hours are changing!

On Saturdays, the shelter will be open to visitors by appointment only between the hours of 12pm - 4pm. We realize this may be an inconvenience but this is for the safety and security of the pets and shelter staff. Cleburne Animal Services will still have an ACO available for field services on Saturdays and citizens with stray pets or those looking for a lost pet may still come to the shelter without an appointment. Please be aware that the shelter may be closed during these times for off-site adoption events so it is always advised to call ahead. Please check our Facebook page for important updates, closures, events, and other information. As always, pets that are available for adoption can be viewed on our Adoptions page 24/7. Owners looking for lost pets can check our Lost Pets page 24/7 as well. These pages are updated in real time and have the most current animal information available. Thank you for your understanding!
