Mecklenburg County Animal Services: (704) 336-7600

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Mecklenburg County and sponsored by the city of Charlotte. 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 (704) 336-7600 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 Charlotte, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Charlotte Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 704-552-2329

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

North Carolina Wildlife Commission: 919-707-4011

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

Charlotte Police Department: 704-336-7600

PoliceYes, the Charlotte 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 Charlotte, 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.

Charlotte Wildlife Tip:
What do snake droppings look like - Snake droppings do not look like anything remarkable. They are not easily differentiated from other animal excrement and the solid waste-when it finally happens-is misshapen and full of liquid. Larger snakes will have evidence of bones or nails from their prey in the sample. These parts of an animal are usually too difficult to digest and are passed through the intestinal tract with the rest of the waste products. Snakes do differ from many other animals in the fact that they expel both liquid waste and solid waste from their cloaca, an orifice at the base of the tail. This dual-purpose body part is the reason why snakes often have urea streaked throughout their stool or as a white cap somewhere in the mixture. Identifying snake poop will not help you in most situations. First, if there is an animal inside of your home and you have found multiple piles of the questionable droppings, it is probably not a snake. Not only do snakes rarely remain inside of a building, they only eat infrequently. This occasional eating results in occasional elimination. You will not find mound after mound of snake poop unless the creature has been around for a very long time.
