Animal Control


If you have a animal complaint please call the Ava Police Department. We are not a shelter. We can only pick up strays within the city limits of Ava.

Animal Control will respond from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday thru Friday (No Holidays) unless it is an emergency or someone has been bitten.

If you have an issue with an animal other than a dog or cat you will need to call the conservation at 417-683-3628.

The City will not remove dead animals because we have no way to properly dispose of them.
