Kings County Animal Services: 718-272-7200

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Kings County and sponsored by the city of New York City. 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 718-272-7200 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 York City, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

New York City Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 646-569-5860

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 York City Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

New York Wildlife Commission: 518-402-8920

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

New York City Police Department: 646-610-5000

PoliceYes, the New York City 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 York City, 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 York City Wildlife Tip:
Is There A Way To Remove Squirrel Odor From Attic - If you have squirrels in your attic you already know that you have quite a major problem. Squirrels are difficult to get rid of and can cause huge amounts of damage to the wiring and structure of your home. If you do manage to successfully remove your squirrels you may well be left with a token of their appreciation - a terrible stink! Squirrels are actually rodents and it is well known that rodents tend to urinate as the run around and also take a scatter approach when emptying their bowels resulting in a deeply unpleasant odor developing over time which will linger long after your furry visitors have departed. If your attic is insulated you may have to remove the whole lot, scrub and de-odorize the whole area and bring in new insulation.

If your attic is poorly ventilated this will only exacerbate the problem and you may want to consider having some extra ventilation installed - squirrel proof of course. Because smell is often absorbed into the surroundings it is difficult and sometimes impossible to get rid of. A couple of tips that may help to speed along the process are the use of bicarbonate of soda and vinegar - cheap and simple. If you place bowls of soda or vinegar around the attic space you will find that they absorb the unpleasant smells which are lingering - of course it may take some time but eventually with regular ventilation, use of deodorizing products and a few bowls of vinegar your attic will begin to smell sweet again.
