Alachua County Animal Services: (352) 264-6870

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Alachua County and sponsored by the city of Gainesville. 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 (352) 264-6870 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 Gainesville, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Gainesville Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 352-371-4400

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

Florida Wildlife Commission: 888-404-3922

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

Gainesville Police Department: 352-393-7500

PoliceYes, the Gainesville 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 Gainesville, 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.

Gainesville Wildlife Tip:
Florida snakes - Florida is unlucky in the fact that it has every variety of the venomous snakes living in North America. Florida has copperheads, cottonmouths, rattlesnakes, and coral snakes. It also has a serious Burmese python issue, even though those reptiles are not native to the region. Living in Florida means living with snakes. There is no way to safeguard yourself from them if you live in a rural area. The way people survive coexistence with venomous snakes is by learning how to behave in snake territory. Most hikers and outdoor enthusiasts know to wear tall enough boots when they walk outside. Residents of Florida know not to step blindly over logs or stone fences. Walking sticks are not only for show, but are an important way of testing the ground before you take a step. All of these behaviors are necessary adaptations people further north are not accustomed to. Because venomous snakes are common in Florida, having the number of a good snake remover is important. Snake professionals will be able to come to your home and remove problem serpents before you or your pets get injured. Though venomous snakes are usually just passing through, a snake remover will be able to pick up the animal and relocate it away from the home.
