Cuyahoga County Animal Services: 216-525-7877

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Cuyahoga County and sponsored by the city of Cleveland. 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 216-525-7877 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 Cleveland, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Cleveland Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 216-459-0903

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

Ohio Wildlife Commission: 330-644-2293

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

Cleveland Police Department: 216-348-7119

PoliceYes, the Cleveland 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 Cleveland, 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.

Cleveland Wildlife Tip:
I live in Cleveland ohio I think there is a squirrel in my house how can I get rid of him - Cleveland, Ohio has its fair share of rodent issues, and if there is a squirrel in your house you can get rid of him. Getting rid of a squirrel is not always as easy as installing the one way door trap and then going on your merry way. Squirrels are very destructive and often have multiple entry points into a home. Unlike rats and mice, squirrels should not be trapped with snap traps. You can use cage traps and repeater traps, but one way doors are the most efficient means of getting rid of squirrels. Squirrels will also be more easily displaced due to their ability to survive just fine outside of a home. The only reason a squirrel may be determined to get back inside would be if babies were left somewhere in the house. Infant animals are a very real possibility. If you think the squirrel has a family that may complicate the exclusion process, your best bet is to call a professional wildlife remover in to handle the job. Squirrel babies will not be out in the open. They will be hidden in the walls or eaves of your home. If you use a one way door trap, the babies that are left behind will eventually die and then smell as they start to decay.
