Greene County Animal Services: 417 864 1126

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Greene County and sponsored by the city of Springfield. 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 417 864 1126 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 Springfield, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Springfield Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 417-888-4237

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 Springfield Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

Missouri Wildlife Commission: 417-895-6880

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

Springfield Police Department: 417-864-1810

PoliceYes, the Springfield 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 Springfield, 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.

Springfield Wildlife Tip:
I never use the attic and there's mice up there - If you never use the attic and there's mice up there, take heart; the mice can be removed and you will be able to get back to your everyday activities. The reason there are mice in your attic is because they entered through a hole in your home. The fact that you rarely frequent that part of the home is a major factor in why the mice chose the space to begin with. A mouse will look for a dark, quiet area to take over. Attics are one of the most commonly invaded areas of the home. Residents often don't know that mice are in the attic until the problem gets out of hand. To get rid of the pest issue, you need to find the areas outside that have allowed the mice to break in. Mouse holes need to be repaired or you will continue to have rodents in the home, and new mice will move in to replace any you manage to trap. Once the holes have been sealed, the traps can be set. Trapping mice starts with finding the areas where the critters are spending their time. Mice will leave behind feces and urine markings where they like to travel often. Places with evidence like this will be perfect locations for snap traps.
