Clovis Animal Services

Animals can bring joy and comfort to our lives. That's why, when problems arise, the Clovis Animal Services Division makes every effort to assist. Animal Services offers its assistance in many situations, including barking and roaming dogs, lost animals, adoptions, microchipping, and any wildlife concerns that occur within the city limits. 

Whenever possible, Clovis Animal Services works to return lost pets to their original owners. When that’s not possible, the division works to place unclaimed animals with new owners through the adoption program at the Miss Winkles Pet Adoption Center, or by way of rescue organizations. 

Our Animal Receiving & Care Center is located at 908 Villa Avenue (behind Letterman Park), on Villa Avenue between Barstow and Bullard Avenues. Business hours are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The phone number is 559-324-2450.  Questions about owner surrendered pets and lost or found pets should be directed here.

The Miss Winkles Pet Adoption Center is located at 85 Temperance Avenue (at the corner of Temperance and Sierra Avenues).  Business hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. The cost to adopt a dog or a cat is $25.00. All adoptable cats and dogs have been spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. 

For after-hour emergencies – situations that involve injured animals or the presence of a vicious animal – please call 324-2800, which is the Clovis Police Department’s non-emergency number.

What the Law Allows

The laws in Clovis regarding pets are designed for the safety and security of both animals and residents. All dogs must be licensed and vaccinated and all potbellied pigs must be licensed. When off an owner’s private property, dogs and potbellied pigs must be on leash. 

The household limit for the City of Clovis – established for the safety and security of animals and residents – specifies a maximum number of pets. 

Please refer to CMC 6.1.301 for specifics. Use the link below under the Licensing and Law Information heading to view Clovis Municipal Code Animal Regulations.
