San Francisco County Animal Services: (415) 554-6364

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in San Francisco County and sponsored by the city of San Francisco. 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 (415) 554-6364 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 Francisco, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

San Francisco Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 415-221-3498

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 Francisco 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 Francisco Police Department: 415-553-0123

PoliceYes, the San Francisco 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 Francisco, 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 Francisco Wildlife Tip:
How to locate dead mouse smell in San Fran - The air currents in your home will dictate how you locate dead mouse smell. Chances are you know the general area the odor is the most potent, but are you sure the body is in that part of the home? There are certain things like heat and moisture that will amplify the smell from a dead animal. Keep in mind, if you smell the creature in the kitchen, it could be in the basement and the air currents are bringing it up to kitchen level. Before you open up any walls or floors, you should look for a pattern associated with the smell. Is it strongest during the day? In the morning or in the evening? Do you smell it in any other areas of the home? Unfortunately, finding a dead animal is not always easy, and it is sometimes much more difficult than trapping and removing live animals. If you are having difficulty eliminating the smell because the body can't be found, consider calling a professional. Many wildlife removal companies also offer a dead animal removal service. The cost involved will be well-worth the relief of finding the animal quickly and with minimal repairs needed.
