Field Operations & Services:

Pick Up Animals

To Report a Stray, Injured, Abused, Aggressive or Dead Animal that Needs to Be Picked Up:
Please call Lathrop Animal Services at 209-941-7240. The Animal Services Assistant will send out an Animal Services Officer to handle your complaint. If there is no answer at the office, please leave a detailed message on the answering machine about your complaint and your call back number. This system is directly linked to an Officer out in the field and he/she will call you back or respond to your complaint as soon as they are available.

If you wish to report a dead or stray animal on or along any highway, you should call the California Highway Patrol. The phone number for the California Highway Patrol is (209) 943-8600. Please call Lathrop Animal Services as well at (209)941-7240 to advise us of the situation. Most often, we can arrive on scene within a few minutes to assess the situation and assist; however, due to safety concerns, our assistance is limited.

If your own pet becomes ill or is injured, you should call your veterinarian or the one nearest to you. Local veterinarians' phone numbers are listed in the yellow pages of the phone book under Veterinarians. For cases after your vet's normal hours, an emergency veterinary clinic provides care for sick or injured pets. You can call either Associated Veterinary Emergency Services located at 3008 E. Hammer Lane, Stockton 209-952-8387 or the Modesto Veterinary Emergency Clinic located at 1800 Prescott Rd., Modesto 209-527-8844.
