Montgomery County Animal Services: (610) 825-0111

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Montgomery County and sponsored by the city of Philadelphia. 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 (610) 825-0111 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 Philadelphia, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Philadelphia Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 215-482-8217

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 Philadelphia 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.

Philadelphia Police Department: 215-686-1776

PoliceYes, the Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia, 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.

Philadelphia Wildlife Tip:
What Does Dead Squirrel Look Like? - A lot of people who are debating between using poison, a lethal trap, or other lethal methods to catch a squirrel ask themselves what does dead squirrel look like. The fact is that the answer to the question depends on a few factors; how long has the squirrel been dead? What method was used to kill the squirrel? All those things will influence what you see when you have to remove the dead squirrel. Needless to say that a dead squirrel that has been in a place for a while will be decomposed and you may not even recognize it anymore.

If you have used poison and you are aware that the squirrel has eaten it, you will want to remove it fast. There is a chance that the squirrel will be bloated, but will otherwise not look that bad. It will be stiff, and you should not pick it up with your hand. A squirrel that has been killed using a trap will not look nearly as good. A lethal trap can in some cases be too strong and make a mess out of the squirrel and this is when people with a weak stomach should not be around. If you are concerned about the look of a dead squirrel you can always use non-lethal traps.
