This is the government animal control services operating in Saint Louis County and sponsored by the city of St. Louis. 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 314-615-0650 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 St. Louis, 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 St. Louis Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This 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.
Yes, the St. Louis 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 St. Louis, 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.

St. Louis Wildlife Tip:
How to remove a skunk from the porch - Sometimes skunks find their way into places where we least expect them. A porch is often reserved for pets, and people like to leave food out thinking no other animals will come in and bother it. If you have a pet door or an open window to let in your cats that prowl at night, that area can also let in a skunk. Sometimes a skunk will enter the porch and then not know how to get back out. This is when the homeowner wakes up and finds the critter wandering around the porch. Usually, the only thing you can do is to sneak onto the porch and open up the door. The skunk won't spray you if you can quietly move onto the landing or if you can get out of another door to open the porch from the outside. Remember: The skunk is afraid of you. Move slowly and do your best not to make any loud sounds. Once the door on the porch is open, give the skunk some time to find its way out. Sometimes the animal is too frightened to move and might be hiding in a corner or under some furniture.
