Animal Resource Services

ANimal

The Town of Davie Code Compliance division has one Animal Resource Officer that responds to animal-related complaints, as well as general code violations within the Town.

 

The Town of Davie does not operate its own animal shelter or holding facility for lost and found animals. We work diligently to reunite lost animals with their owners, but in the event, an owner cannot be located, we rely on assistance from local rescue groups, the county animal shelter, or farms to temporarily hold the animal(s). If you have lost or found a pet or livestock, please contact the Davie Police Department dispatch at 954-693-8200 to provide a detailed description and your contact information. To report a lost or found dog or cat to Broward County Animal Care & Adoption, send a detailed email to lostandfound@broward.org.  

Please be advised it is unlawful to not report a found animal to the appropriate animal shelter or Police agency.

For immediate assistance with loose, aggressive stray dogs, cruelty to animals, dog bites, or loose livestock, please contact the 24hr non-emergency police dispatch number at 954-764-4357 or the Davie Police Department 954-693-8200. 

For all other complaints that are general in nature, please call the Code Compliance division at 954-693-8237.  If you would like to send an email please send it to our Animal Resource Officer by clicking here. Always include a phone number where you can be reached and unless otherwise noted, all calls, emails, and complaints are generally handled within 24hrs.

In the officer’s absence, Broward County Animal Care and Adoption Division handles calls and complaints within the Town, regarding dogs and cats only.  954-359-1313 then press 2, in the event you have to leave a message, please make sure you provide a callback phone number.

 In the event of an emergency always dial 911. 

FOR SICK, INJURED, OR ORPHANED WILDLIFE

A wide variety of wildlife can be observed here in the Town. If an injured or sick animal is observed it is best to consider how it may defend itself from a perceived attack from the person trying to help. Raccoon, fox, and opossum all have very sharp teeth, many birds are designed with long necks and sharp beaks and are able to strike the eye, others have powerful jaws that could crack a nut. Before handling a potentially dangerous injured wild animal, consider these things and if there is concern that human injury may occur, then someone with protective equipment or experience should be notified.

  • Please contact the South Florida Wildlife Center 7 days a week 8:00 am-6:00 pm at 954-524-4302. 
    • You can also take the animal for treatment at 3200 SW 4th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315  

Note: the trapping of nuisance wildlife on your property is permitted by a licensed wildlife trapper and is the responsibility of the property owner. Please refer to www.myfwc.com for more information.

DECEASED ANIMAL REMOVAL

Note: removal of dead animals from private property is the responsibility of the property owner.
