Animations don't run in the servers.  They run entiirely in your client viewer. 

When you have a stuck animation, it is usually easy to stop with either the Stop Al Animations option in your viewer or with a free animation stopping device.  If that doesn't work, it's because the script that is animating you is still active and is retriggering the animation continuously.  A script has to be in an object, but the object could either be on your avatar (as an attachment) or somewhere on the same sim with you.  You can tell the difference by teleporting to a different sim.  If the animation stops, then the object is on the previous sim.  If it doesn't, it is on you.

Finding an animation on yourself is usually quite easy.  Just start taking off attachments until it stops.  It may be in hair or clothing, or it may be in some tiny transparent object that could b buried inside you.  Search in your inventory to see everything you are wearing.

Finding an animation on your sim can be a real bear.  You can use a beacon (CTRL+Shift + Alt + N) to highlight all scripted objects around you and then check them laboriously untl you find the right one.  If you know the name or the owner of the thing, you can use the Area Search tool in your Firestorm, Phoenix, ro CoolVR viewer.
