San Diego County Animal Services: (619) 767-2675

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in San Diego County and sponsored by the city of San Diego. 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 (619) 767-2675 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 San Diego, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

San Diego Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 619-225-9453

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 San Diego 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.

San Diego Police Department: 619-692-4800

PoliceYes, the San Diego 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 San Diego, 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.

San Diego Wildlife Tip:
How to make rats go away - If you want to become skilled in the art of how to make a rat go away, the first thing you need to understand is why rats invade a home. The rat that is a nuisance animal is not in the same category as the rat that lives in the wild. Rats that sneak into buildings have come from a long lineage of other rats that have known nothing other than living off the scraps of humans. These critters will not survive in a wilderness setting; the house rat is completely dependent on humanity for survival. That being said, there are few things that will turn a rat from an established home. Repellents and sounds deterrents are all futile ways to get a rat to go away. The animal has nowhere else to go. Your home is its home. The only way to get rid of a rat is to trap the animal and remove it. There are many ways to go about this, but lethal trapping is the most effective way to remedy a rodent issue. Rats that are excluded from a home or relocated will just become nuisances for another person or will find a way back inside.
