Animal Resource Services



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 Lost and Found, please call 954-359-1313 ext. 9260 or email [email protected].  

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


A wide variety of wildlife can be observed here in the Town. 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. 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.

Contact the South Florida Wildlife Center seven days a week 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 954-524-4302. You can also take the animal for treatment to the South Florida Wildlife Center 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 for more information.


For removal of dead animals from Town roads and right-of-ways, please contact the Town of Davie Public Works Department at 954-797-1240.

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