Thurston County Animal Services: (360) 352-2510

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Thurston County and sponsored by the city of Olympia. 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 (360) 352-2510 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 Olympia, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Olympia Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 360-866-8367

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

Washington Wildlife Commission: 360-902-2200

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

Olympia Police Department: 360-753-8300

PoliceYes, the Olympia 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 Olympia, 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.

When should you hire a company and pay for wildlife control services?

Olympia Wildlife Tip:
Can you use a trap to catch a skunk in a house - If you have a skunk that snuck into your house and is now hiding somewhere inaccessible, you can use a trap to catch it, but it might take some time. You'll need to wait for the skunk to settle down before it feels safe enough to venture out and take the bait from a trap. This could take a few hours or a few days. Either way, you'll need the skunk to be in a room where you can leave it alone for as long as it takes. If the room is vital to your everyday living (like the kitchen or bathroom) you should consider having a professional come and remove the skunk immediately. For the skunk in a spare room or bedroom, you can assume the animal will eventually become hungry. If you use a cage trap baited with something tasty like wet cat food, the skunk won't take too long to come out and investigate. Just be prepared for the suddenly closure of the trap to startle the skunk enough for it to spray. You can help protect your room by covering the top and the sides of the trap with a tarp or a big blanket.
