Alameda County Animal Services: (925) 803-7040

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Alameda County and sponsored by the city of Oakland. 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 (925) 803-7040 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 Oakland, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Oakland Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 510-267-1915

RehabberThis 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 Oakland Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

California Wildlife Commission: 916-445-0411

Game WardenThis is the statewide government wildlife agency in California, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the California Fish & Wildlife Agency. California 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 California perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Oakland Police Department: 510-777-3333

PoliceYes, the Oakland 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 Oakland, 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.

Oakland Wildlife Tip:
Can You Remove Squirrel From Ceiling Space - If you have heard the unmistakable sound of scampering or gnawing above your head you may have squirrels in your ceiling space! They probably started out in the attic but it's quite easy for these stubborn and versatile animals to squeeze through a tiny crack or a vent and discover the thrill that is your ceiling space. Getting rid of squirrels from your ceiling is very similar to evicting them from the attic. First, do your detective work - you will have to be up early in the morning in order to observe your squirrels going in and out of your home - fairly soon you should be able to work out which is their favored exit and entryway and which is the most popular run.

Once you have done this invest in a trap. Place your trap on the favored squirrel run, leave some bait just outside the door but don't prime the trap. Leave the trap in place like that for a few days, keep replenishing the bait. You can use this time to squirrel proof the rest of your home - leaving one entryway for the squirrels to use. After a couple of days, move the bait inside the still unprimed trap and leave for a few more days. Then it is time to prime the trap and wait - once you start catching squirrels you should either kill them or relocate them far away from your home.
