Henrico County Animal Services: (804) 646-5573

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Henrico County and sponsored by the city of Richmond. 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 (804) 646-5573 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 Richmond, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Richmond Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 804-378-2000

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

Virginia Wildlife Commission: 804-367-0909

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

Richmond Police Department: 804-646-8092

PoliceYes, the Richmond 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 Richmond, 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.

Richmond Wildlife Tip:
What to do with baby raccoons in a house -What you do with baby raccoons in a house depends on what you have done with the mother. If the mother has just left the building for a period of time, you can scoop up the babies and place them in a partitioned cage trap. Set the trap with the babies outside near where the adult climbs up the building. The vast majority of the time, the mother will walk right into the cage to check on her babies. If you've already trapped the mother and killed her or relocated her, you need to take the babies to a wildlife rehabilitator. Do not try to raise them on your own. Unless you have been specially trained, you will not know how to teach the kits the survival skills they will need to survive in the wild as adults. It is sometimes possible to take the babies to the relocation area if they haven't been separated from the mother for too long. If you do this, make sure you place them in a protected area and come back to check on them frequently. If they are still there after a few days, you need to take them to the wildlife professional.
