If it is a domestic animal such as a dog, cat, horse, etc, you should contact the owner so that you can recoup the expense of any damage to your vehicle. If there is no apparent damage you should still contact them as there may be damage you cannot see. Besides it is just the right thing to do. If it is a wild animal such as a deer then you should contact your local game warden and let him know there is a dead animal beside the road. The meat from that animal, if edible, can feed some poor people. If it is a squirrel, rabbit, opossum, coyote, etc, then you can just drive on.
