Allegheny County Animal Services: 412.255.2036

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Allegheny County and sponsored by the city of Pittsburgh. 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 412.255.2036 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 Pittsburgh, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Pittsburgh Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 412-345-7300

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

Pennsylvania Wildlife Commission: 724-238-9524

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.

Pittsburgh Police Department: 412-323-7201

PoliceYes, the Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh, 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.

Pittsburgh Wildlife Tip:
What Are Some Of The Reasons Why People Don't Trap - Squirrels are just too cute and fluffy to trap. Aren't they? The answer to that of course is a resounding no! Many people are under the impression that squirrels are cute, fluffy animals that are highly intelligent and fascinating to watch. This makes them feel sentimental about these creatures which are in fact rodents and highly destructive. It is likely that anyone who has never had a squirrel infestation will protest loudly against the use of traps. It is probably also likely that those experiencing their first group of attic squatters will want to take a 'humane' approach to removal.

Many people believe that traps are cruel and unnecessary and that using moth balls, or ultrasonic noise or even just squirrel proofing their home can be just as effective. Well, sadly, none of those things are true. Moth balls and ultrasonic noise makers are recognized as not working and if you squirrel proof your home before you have got rid of all the squirrels the damage they make trying to get back in may be worse than you imagined. Many people feel sentimental about squirrels and squeamish about trapping them - therefore traps are often seen as a last resort when in fact they should be the first choice.
