This is the government animal control services operating in Pima County and sponsored by the city of Tucson. This agency typically deals with domestic animal issues involving dogs and cats. This includes things like dangerous dogs, stray cats, pet adoptions, etc. However, this agency will sometimes lend assistance with wildlife concerns. Call 520-243-5900 and ask if they will assist with your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, do not lie, but if applicable, state that the problem is a public health matter in Tucson, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
This is NOT a government agency. It is privately run, and operates on volunteer donations. This is a wildlife rehabber facility that deals strictly with wild animals. They may be able to help you with your wildlife problem, depending on the type of problem. The level of help might depend on their resources at the time. They will almost surely help in any case of an injured wild animal, or an orphaned baby animal, such as a baby squirrel or bird that fell out of a tree, or a baby opossum, etc. Please treat Tucson Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Arizona, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Arizona Fish & Wildlife Agency. Arizona game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and yes, wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. But they also have resources that may apply to your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, state that the problem is a public health matter in Arizona perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Tucson police department will sometimes help with wildlife problems! I've seen many cases of the cops chasing down an errant bat in your house or snake in your pool! To increase the chance of success, never lie to the police dispatcher, but if applicable, state that you feel your personal safety is at risk, or the problem is a public safety matter in Tucson, or a public health issue perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases. Success may come down to whether or not a police officer wants to show up to this call, or is available. It's not always consistent.

Tucson Wildlife Tip:
Snake Poop - Do not be fooled into thinking that because a snake is long that it will leave behind long droppings. Snake feces are hard to identify and resemble the droppings of many other carnivores. Because there is not a lot of fiber in a snake's diet, solid waste tends to be moist. This is further complicated by the fact that both urine and fecal material are expelled at the same time through the same opening, the cloaca. As you might imagine, this makes the droppings even more liquid. One characteristic of snake droppings are that they open have a white cap or a white substance within the stool. This is urea, and this is how the snake expels the toxin from its system. Even if you come across snake poop, if it is days old it may be unrecognizable. Fur, teeth, bones, and other indigestible items will be able to be seen, but the color will no longer be dark brown as it is when first excreted. As it dries, snake poop becomes chalky in color. The best way to determine if you have found snake poop is to eliminate other animals from your suspect list. Other carnivores will excrete bones and teeth; however, the stool is often in pellet form. Snake poop is usually a liquid blob with some form within.
