Adopt a Pet

Corpus Christi Animal Care Services aims to help adoptable animals find loving homes. Find animals that are available for adoption and learn about the adoption process.

Animal Care Ordinances

The City of Corpus Christi Animal Care Ordinances are listed under Chapter 6, of the Municipal Code of Ordinances. The ordinance has eight articles.

Animal Rescue and Stray Animals

Injured animals are a high priority response for Animal Control Officers. A sick or injured stray animal should be reported to the Customer Call Center between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at (361) 826-2489.

CCACS Volunteer Program

City of Corpus Christi Animal Care Services is seeking dedicated and long term volunteers.

Coyote Information

Animal Care Services receives many calls regarding public safety. While we know that there is great concern about wildlife attacking people, the risk is very low.

Lost Pets

No one wants to experience the terrible feeling of losing a treasured pet. Learn about what you can do if you have lost a pet or if you have found someone else's pet.

Pay Pet Licenses

Pet Licenses are required in the City of Corpus Christi. Licenses protect your pet from being impounded if your pet is picked up by Animal Care Services.

Pet Immunizations

Animal Care Services hosts a mobile clinic which provides low-cost vaccinations each month, excluding holidays. CCACS no longer runs a public spay/neuter clinic to the general public.

Rabies Information

CCACS will pick up privately owned or city-owned traps if they contain known rabies carriers, such as bats, skunks, raccoons, bobcats, foxes, or coyotes. (Opossums are not rabies carriers.)        

Report Animal Neglect and Abuse

Our pets and other animals rely on us to take care of them and provide them with needed veterinary services, food water, and shelter. If you witness animal neglect or cruelty, report it to CCACS.

Report Animal Nuisances

Barking dogs and sanitation complaints are a frustration to citizens and Animal Care Officers alike. When these complaints are made to CCACS, the City Attorney's Office is immediately involved.

Report Dangerous Dogs

If you suspect a dog is dangerous and it has met the guidelines required by Texas law, an investigation may be conducted to determine if the dog is a Dangerous Dog.

Request Animal Body Removal

Animal Care Services no longer handles requests to remove a dead animal. This is now performed through the Solid Waste Department. Our Customer Call Center receives these requests. 

Surrender Your Pet

Making the decision to give up your pet can be a difficult one. We encourage you to exhaust all possible avenues of rehoming your pet before bringing a pet to Animal Care Services.

Wild Animal Traps

Residents can rent wild animal traps from Animal Care Services, free of charge. Learn about trap rental rules, owning private traps, baiting traps and setting up traps.
