Clovis Animal Services

Pets and animals can bring joy and comfort to our lives. But 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. 

Visit the Clovis Pet Adoption Center to find your next pet. Whenever possible, Animal Services works to return lost animals 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 Clovis Pet Adoption Center or by way of rescue organizations. 

Our shelter is located at 908 Villa Avenue (behind Letterman Park) on Villa Avenue between Barstow and Bullard Avenues. Hours are 2 to 6 p.m., every day. The phone number is 559-324-2450. At present, hours for the Clovis Pet Adoption Center, located at the front end of the park, are 2 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.
