This is the government animal control services operating in Sacramento County and sponsored by the city of Sacramento. 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 916-808-7387 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 Sacramento, 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 Sacramento Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in California, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the California Fish & Wildlife Agency. California 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 California perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Sacramento 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 Sacramento, 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.

Sacramento Wildlife Tip:
How to make animal repellent for use in the attic - There are many home remedies that will instruct you how to make animal repellent for use in the attic. Mothballs, peppermint oil, mint leaves, sulfur bombs, dog hair, cat litter, and predator urine are all things that do-it-yourselfers have tried over the years. If rat removal were so simple, there would be no need for professional wildlife removers or the variety of traps on the market. Animals are not as affected by smells as humans would like to believe. A smell communicates something to the animal. If it is a bad smell, like the hair of a dog, that odor tells the creature a dog was or is nearby. It does not make the nuisance animal reflect on its choice for a nesting site. What mothballs and peppermint oil communicate to a pest is unknown. These odors have no bearing on the animal in the outside world. Studies have demonstrated the ineffectiveness of mothballs against most animals time and time again. If you are looking to get rid of an active animal issue, your options are limited. You need to have the creatures trapped and removed. There are no repellents that will do the job for you.
