This is the government animal control services operating in Jefferson County and sponsored by the city of Birmingham. 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 (205) 591-6522 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 Birmingham, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
This 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 Birmingham Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Alabama, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Alabama Fish & Wildlife Agency. Alabama 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 Alabama perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Birmingham 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 Birmingham, 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.

Birmingham Wildlife Tip:
How to kill the rats at home - People often want to know how to kill the rats at home. Especially in a depressed economy, the desire to do things on one's own is growing. Killing rats is not about brute force; rats will need to be caught through patience and through application of knowledge. Because knowledge and experience are so important, one of the first things to remember in the business of killing rats is that you cannot poison a rat. It's not that the animals won't eat the poison (which they usually don't) or that they are immune to it, poisoning rats will result in dead bodies hidden throughout your home. When these remains start to decay, your house will be filled with an odor that will not be covered up. The only way to get rid of the dead animal smell is to remove the dead animal. Before you get into such a pickle, consider killing rats through the use of trapping. The most effective lethal traps are snap traps. The style is up to you, but the mechanism is the same. Snappers kill rats through use of crushing force onto the spinal column. When set in the correct locations, these traps are worth their weight in gold.
