Orleans Parish Animal Services: 504-278-1535

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Orleans Parish and sponsored by the city of New Orleans. 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 504-278-1535 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 New Orleans, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

New Orleans Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 504-322-3929

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 New Orleans Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

Louisiana Wildlife Commission: 504-523-2651

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

New Orleans Police Department: 504-658-6010

PoliceYes, the New Orleans 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 New Orleans, 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.

New Orleans Wildlife Tip:
When you see a raccoon in the middle of the day - The media, movies, and public health officials have done a good job putting the fear of day-walking raccoons into our hearts. The truth of the matter, however, is that not all raccoons out in the daylight are sick with rabies or another disease. You need to look at the circumstances around the sighting before you can make a determination. As a rule of thumb, you should avoid a raccoon-during the day or at night-when you see one. Nocturnal animals sleep during the day and do their activities at night, but just as you've probably woken up at night and gotten out of bed, so does the raccoon. Sleep can be interrupted for any reason. Maybe the raccoon sensed danger; maybe it heard you tromping through the forest; maybe the raccoon lives in your attic and has gotten used to your putting out your compost at noon each day. Any of these could be logical, normal reasons for a raccoon to be out in daylight. If you see a raccoon and it is behaving strangely, wobbling, falling, excessively salivating, or acting unusually friendly, then you should call the authorities.
