Report a Deceased Animal

To report a deceased animal, please go to the online Deceased Animal Report Form.

We prioritize all of our Field Service calls based on public safety. Deceased animal reports will be handled as quickly as possible, though it may take up to seven days for removal. Please note that CCAS will not perform deceased animal pickups in areas that pose a safety risk to our officers. These areas include crawl spaces, attics, cliffs, condemned buildings, creek beds, hillsides and other unsafe locations.

*Please Note: 

  • CCAS will not conduct deceased wild animal pickups on private property. 
  • CCAS will not conduct deceased animal pickups for owned deceased animals.  
  • For deceased animals on the highway, please contact Caltrans.
