This is the government animal control services operating in Hampden County and sponsored by the city of Springfield. 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 413-781-1484 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 Springfield, 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 Springfield Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Massachusetts, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Massachusetts Fish & Wildlife Agency. Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Springfield 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 Springfield, 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.

Springfield Wildlife Tip:
When to release baby raccoons - If you've decided to hand-raise baby raccoons, you need to know they will usually become dependent on you for their survival right through adulthood. Only wildlife rehabilitators raise orphaned raccoons with the deliberate instillation of necessary wildlife survival skills. Most homeowners don't know how to go about this, so even if the babies are close to a year old and ready to go out on their own, they are not likely to survive. If you have an adult raccoon in your house and you know she has babies hidden, try to have the mother trapped alive and the babies removed at the same time. This way, both mother and infants can be relocated together. While some mothers still abandon their kits due to stress, there is a good chance the mother will find a new home for herself and the litter. Even if this doesn't happen, and you find yourself with a handful of baby raccoons, you should turn them over to a wildlife rehabilitator. Not only is there a possibility those babies have infectious diseases, the rehabilitator will be able to raise them so they can alter be released.
