Dauphin County Animal Services: 717-564-3320

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Dauphin County and sponsored by the city of Harrisburg. 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 717-564-3320 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 Harrisburg, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Harrisburg Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 570-739-4393

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

Pennsylvania Wildlife Commission: 610-926-3136

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

Harrisburg Police Department: 717-255-3131

PoliceYes, the Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg, 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.

Harrisburg Wildlife Tip:
Getting a skunk out of your house - Getting a skunk out of your house will depend on why the animal is inside. If the skunk has just wandered in during the night in a quest for food, you need to take that as a lesson learned about securing pet doors and windows before going to bed. Most of the time, if you can close the skunk off from the rest of the house and leave a door open for it to go outside, the animal will eventually leave on its own. This might take a while, and might even happen after dark. Be patient before you panic. If the animal is in a room that you need immediately, you probably should call a professional to have the critter removed. If the skunk is living in one of the exterior walls of your home and you want it gone, trapping with a cage trap is more than sufficient to remedy the problem. You will need to locate the area where the skunk is entering the house. Place your cage trap in this location and bait it with some marshmallows or some wet cat food.
