Montgomery County Animal Services: (937) 268-7387

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Montgomery County and sponsored by the city of Dayton. 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 (937) 268-7387 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 Dayton, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Dayton Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 937-698-6493

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

Ohio Wildlife Commission: 937-372-9261

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.

Dayton Police Department: 937-333-2677

PoliceYes, the Dayton 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 Dayton, 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.

Dayton Wildlife Tip:
I can't kill rats -Killing rats is not as difficult as it may seem. If you can't kill rats, it may be because you are going about the process in the wrong way. First, do not use poison. Many people who put out poison marvel at the fact that rats don't seem to eat it, or, if they do, they don't seem to die. The ineffectiveness of poison is not because the product is of poor quality. The nature of rats prevents poison from working most of the time. Rats are scavengers and will taste a small bit of their food before eating it. This learned behavior has saved the lives of rats for decades. If a rat eats poison and gets sick but does not die, the rat will never take another bite of the substance. If you are setting out traps but not seeing rats, it may be because your traps are not in the correct locations. Baiting a trap and hoping the rat is drawn to it is not the way to go about rodent removal. Traps need to be placed in areas where the rats have been travelling. These routes will be littered with droppings and other markings. Droppings indicate places where the rats feel safe. The animals will likely return to those locations.
