This is the government animal control services operating in Hillsborough County and sponsored by the city of Tampa. 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 (813) 744-5660 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 Tampa, 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 Tampa Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This 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.
Yes, the Tampa 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 Tampa, 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.

Tampa Wildlife Tip:
Keeping rats away - Keeping rats away is not as tricky as it seems. You do not need cans of coyote urine, and you do not need clumps of dog hair to spread around your yard. Mothballs and peppermint oil are just as unnecessary. It's not that there is a simpler method for keeping rats away; it's that repellents don't work. The best methods for keeping rats out of your home is to keep your house as free of damage and gaps as possible. Buildings are often on-going projects that require constant attention to make sure weather damage and the breakdown of materials is remedied as soon as possible. Rats need to find a way into your home before they can become a nuisance. If there are no passages through the exterior of the building, you will be as protected against rats as you can be. The only other project that might help your cause is to be proactive about the care of your lawn and surrounding vegetation. Rats want to be as clandestine as possible when they sneak up to the house. If the grass is short and no vegetation is around to conceal them, rats will be leery of venturing toward the building.
