This is the government animal control services operating in Duval County and sponsored by the city of Jacksonville. 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 (904) 630-2489 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 Jacksonville, 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 Jacksonville Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Florida, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Florida Fish & Wildlife Agency. Florida 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 Florida perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville, 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.

Jacksonville Wildlife Tip:
Why do raccoons make the noises they make - All animals have a system of communication, just like people. The sounds they make are indicative of their needs and their social inclinations. The sounds you hear from raccoons inside a home are often between a mother and her infants. Not only will these noises serve as comfort for the immobile babies, they will alert the mother to when the kits are hungry or need attention. If in trouble, the babies will cry out for their mother. Sounds form raccoons are one of the main complaints people have about the animals in their attic or crawlspace, though the damage they cause is up on the list as well. The only way to stop the raccoon noises is to have the animals trapped and removed. Don't like kindness get the better of you; yes, you will be ousting the mother and her babies, but they are not worth the risk to your home or your health. If some correctly, all of the raccoons can be captured and then relocated a safe distance away from the home. You do need to look into your local laws regarding trapping. Some states don't allow unlicensed people to trap raccoons, or if you do, the law demands you kill the animals while it is still on your property. If you want to critter captured alive and then transported, you will probably need to hire a professional.
