Marion County Animal Services: (317) 327-1397

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Marion County and sponsored by the city of Indianapolis. 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 (317) 327-1397 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 Indianapolis, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Indianapolis Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 317-514-1653

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

Indiana Wildlife Commission: 317-232-4200

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

Indianapolis Police Department: 317-327-3811

PoliceYes, the Indianapolis 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 Indianapolis, 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.

Indianapolis Wildlife Tip:
Snake deterrent home remedy - The most common home remedy snake deterrent is...mothballs! Before you get too excited, you need to realize that the world uses mothballs to control every single pest critter out there. The fact of the matter is that mothballs do not work against nuisance creatures, most especially snakes. Another favorite home remedy for snakes is that of a texture deterrent. Cowboys used to ring their camps with rope under the idea that the coarse fibers would hurt the snake's belly. If you know about snakes, you know that their undersides are designed to handle most terrain and the rocks and debris out in nature can be far sharper than any rope fiber. There are only two proven repellents for snakes, and neither one can be purchased by anyone other than a licensed professional. Mongoose urine and kingsnake musk have seen some success when it comes to repelling snakes. Even with their supposed success, most snake removal companies rely on the belief that yard modification is a more reliable method of keeping snakes away. If there is nothing about your property that appeals to snakes-like tall grass and overgrown gardens-then the snakes will have no reason to linger.
