The City will collect dead animals from residences and on city streets. City personnel cannot collect dead animals from under buildings, attics, ditches, or from private property. The service is available seven days a week. To arrange for this service, call 3-1-1.

Curbside Service

On request, dead animals will be collected from residences. The animal must be bagged and placed at the curb before calling for collection.

Public Rights-of-Way

Residents may request collection of dead animals on public rights-of-way. Location and description of the dead animal will be asked from the customer.


Service is available to veterinary clinics at an added cost of $10.00 per animal. The veterinary clinic should purchase dead animal tags in advance and then contact the City for collection service.
