Peoria County Animal Services: 309-672-2440

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Peoria County and sponsored by the city of Peoria. 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 309-672-2440 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 Peoria, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Peoria Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 309-449-5799

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

Illinois Wildlife Commission: 217-935-6860

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

Peoria Police Department: 309-673-4521

PoliceYes, the Peoria 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 Peoria, 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.

Peoria Wildlife Tip:
Is there any poison for rats - Rodent poisons are in most all-purpose stores. Is there any reliable poison for rats? Yes and no. Poison will kill rats; make no mistake about that. There are some definite problems, however, when considering this type of control method. The first issue with poison is that many rats will not eat it. A block of poison is made to be as palatable as possible, but if better food is easily gained, rats will ignore the toxin. Rats also avoid poison because some of them have experienced it before. The way a rat feeds prevents many successful attempts at poisoning. Rats are scavengers, and like others of their kind, sample new food before indulging. If a rat gets sick from eating a new substance, the rodent will forever avoid that item in the future. Rate of ingestion is not the biggest issue when dealing with poisons. Rats that have eaten the block and died will not usually be out in plain sight. These little creatures have eased into the spaces of your walls and ceiling. The bodies will begin to decompose and will create a dreadful odor. The only way to be relieved of this smell is to find all of the bodies and remove them from the home.
