Linn County Animal Services: (319) 286-5993

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Linn County and sponsored by the city of Cedar Rapids. 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 (319) 286-5993 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 Cedar Rapids, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Cedar Rapids Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 319-521-6546

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 Cedar Rapids Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

Iowa Wildlife Commission: 515-725-8200

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

Cedar Rapids Police Department: 319-286-5491

PoliceYes, the Cedar Rapids 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 Cedar Rapids, 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.

Cedar Rapids Wildlife Tip:
Liquid solution to skunk - There are a number of products on the market geared toward skunk removal. Some of these are liquid solutions based on the idea of strong odors or predator urine. While relatively inexpensive when compared to the cost of hiring someone to trap and remove the skunk, the downside is that most liquid solutions-and repellents in general-don't work. The logic behind these commercial products is that a strong odor will deter a wild animal in much the same way it would a human. What people don't realize is that animals are not living at the same comfort level of people; they are trying to survive each and every day. A hungry skunk isn't going to abandon a yard full of bugs just because someone walked around and sprayed coyote urine. It takes much more to keep skunks away. People with large dogs have fewer skunk sightings; however, a dog will get sprayed by a skunk if there are ones in the yard. Dogs never seem to know when enough is enough, and they will harass a skunk to the point of becoming saturated with the potent gland expulsion. If you're using dogs as a deterrent, be prepared to give annti-skunk baths frequently.
