This is the government animal control services operating in Fulton County and sponsored by the city of Atlanta. 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 (404) 613-0358 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 Atlanta, 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 Atlanta Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Georgia, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Georgia Fish & Wildlife Agency. Georgia 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 Georgia perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Atlanta 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 Atlanta, 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.

Atlanta Wildlife Tip:
Why do raccoons carry their babies - The ability to carry young away from a threat is vital to the survival of many species. This inclination is often seen in feral cats that move their litters as soon as they have been discovered by people. The raccoon will also move her babies if she feels the threat is great enough. People who have a mother raccoon and a litter of kits in their attics are often looking for a way to encourage the mother to leave on her own. If this can be accomplished, there is little worry of her returning to the location. Unfortunately, getting a mother raccoon to leave is almost impossible. Some people have minimal luck with a product called raccoon eviction fluid. This bottled substance is a mixture of male raccoon urine and gland secretions. Because a mother raccoon is fearful of any males out in the wild-they will kill kits-she may be inclined to leave the attic if the smell is particularly strong. Attics tend to be difficult to use eviction fluid in because of the size of the space. People have more success using the product if the raccoons are in the chimney.
